Spent the last couple of days concentrating on getting in stretching and weights and some foam rolling. It seems to have helped a little bit. This morning's 5-miler (I did the whole thing this time!) was a lot easier on my lungs, though it got more difficult in the second half. My legs also felt better, though I know that's the effect of the ibuprofen I took beforehand - which is a cheat. It means I'm not feeling what's really going on down there and I'll pay for it later. But I have to be in New Jersey tomorrow morning and don't know if I'll get the required run in.
This morning's run was the coldest yet this season: 22 degrees, according the the weather widget on my desktop. Funny, it didn't feel much colder than Tuesday's run, which was at about 34 degrees. I guess it's because the streets and sidewalks were almost clear of ice and snow and the foot placement was easier, leading to a better rhythm and making it easier to keep warm! I did not, however, take off those overgloves!
