Today nothing really went as it should during the exercise. It was “only” an easy one, but sometimes nothing is just easy.
To begin it has been a hot day (+1 degree C), so it has thawed a lot. That wouldn’t bother me sick unless it all had chosen to froze during the evening. I still thought I could run since the surface around our home seemed quite alright.
After a couple of k’s I entered a forest trail area where lots of people usually walk the dog, run, jog or just walk themselves. Here the wet thawing snow had a lot of deep footprints which during the later part of the day had come to freeze. This made very uneven ground, so I had to watch out where I was going to put every step 🙂
Because of that I decided to leave my normal route and run second half of the run on common streets instead. That went well.. For a while.. Then my HR monitor started to dance limbo. On plain ground without any incline at all it started jumping up and down in heart rate. By then I surrendered to the music in my ear – at that particular moment my favorite songs with Matchbox Twenty – shook my head and smiled running the last part to home.
But like they say – all experiences are good experiences. In this case I choose to see it that way 😉
