Pepper and I ran a lightning 3 miles today. The weather was perfect - 28 deg F, one inch of freshly fallen snow, no wind. We both went barefoot. It got dicey when I had to wait for her to live up to her nickname - standing, waiting in ankle deep snow. But the feet warmed quickly once we began running again.
This was our first run since the URINEO FA We took a week off due to my sore foot. About a mile in to the run I stupidly let Pepper drag me down a hill that hid a tree branch at the bottom. My foot found the branch, rather abruptly, and I cursed myself for the rest of the run. I bruised my foot between the heel and the ball. Pepper and I continued running and finished two loops of the URINEO for a 16 mile run for the day. The next day I could hardly walk. Today, a week later, it was a little tender, but nothing to slow me down or worry about injuring again. As I said, today I was lightning.
Happy Christmas to all.
