Stretching

It appears that biking season has wound down. I haven't yet invested in any cool-weather biking gear except for a pair of tights (yes, I'm that secure in my masculinity that I can wear tights). So, it looks like running will be the endurance sport of choice for the near future.

In that vein, I'm going to focus on stretching my lunchtime runs from 4 to 5 miles. I did this yesterday and really enjoyed the run. It's just 10 more minutes, so it's not like a major time investment, but now I can hit the 10 mile benchmark in just 2 runs, rather than 2.5 or 3. So it saves time in that way, I suppose.

Yesterday I did just over 5 in the City Creek/Avenues route in 52 minutes flat. I'll do the same today. Then there's football on Thanksgiving morning, probably in the rain. Should be a blast.
