I have several miles of Greenways near my house which make running in the dark a little safer. Turns out if I run to the end of all three stretches it makes a good 10 miler. Most of it follows the Wilson's Creek so there are a couple of bridges. I was almost over one when I got a whiff of skunk. About as soon as I smelled him I saw him. That is saw his tail standing at attention in spray mode. I'm pretty sure I set a PR for running backwards. After I was pretty sure he was safely in the under brush at the end of the bridge I sprinted out of the area as fast as I could go.
The temperature dropped 7 degrees on me while I was out. It was 40 when I left & 33 when I got home an hour 15 later. I picked the wrong tights & the last two miles I had frozen legs which made keeping my pace up a challenge. When I got home & started to warm up I got the itchy warming skin feeling. Hate that. Will have to make a mental note not to wear my 2XU tights below forty degrees anymore.
Today going to run 8. Should be a nice day for it this afternoon with it supposed to get to 56. If I can get out early enough today might try & sneak a quick ride in as well.
