8 miles in 8:37 pace
Drove to Littleton to run with Carolyn. Traffic was a little slow due to the snow so I got there a few minutes late but still under an hour of drive time. There wasn’t much snow, maybe just a few inches on the trail. Made for a nice soft running surface.
Ran 8 miles in 8:37 ave pace. Felt good for me to take a good recovery day and loosen up my tired legs. And of course its always enoyable to visit with Carolyn. I met a couple of her kids, saw a third sleeping on the couch. Her 7 year old daughter is remarkably cute! Also enjoyed some of Michelle’s wheat bread. YUM!
When I got home I worked on my legs with a Thera Cane. Never heard of it? Me neither until a couple of days ago when Aaron told me he found one that was left in a house he just bought. If it were me rummaging through dirty, junk-filled houses I wouldn’t have recognized this strange device as anything useful but he recognized it since his massage therapist has showed him one before. I tell you what, Aaron has brought home a whole TON of junk from houses he’s bought (which always ends up in our garbage can) but this Thera Cane is a diamond in the rough. It will be a nice compliment to the foam roller in keeping my legs adhesion free.
