Noon in the gym.

It's December which is my low mileage month.  I thought I'd start it off right with a 2 mile TM run in my IS sandals.  I think I'm finally getting the barefoot form down a little better because my calves didn't ache.

I was feeling good for some reason so I decided to to further than my 5 mile plan.  I wish I could feel this good every day.  Did 4 strides.  I also didn't look at my watch the entire run, just wanted to run with good form and enjoy the day.

PS they finally slowed the flow on the Jordan River.  It'd been running high since early spring.

Nice to have the sun come up for the last mile.  No fog, no mist; clear, bright, jovial, cold; cold, piping for the blood to dance to; Golden sunlight; Heavenly sky; sweet fresh air; merry bells.  Oh, glorious! Glorious!

It was  a little cool running into the wind but not a bad day to burn a few calories during this Christmas season.

Me and Dallas ran to my parents home where my two youngest were staying overnight.  I was hoping it would be 5 or more miles but it ended up being only 4.3 miles.  Dallas got a side ache which slowed our time down. 

This was a good year for jogging.  I ran more miles this year than I ever have.  I changed my running style to a shorter stride length and a flat foot landing underneath my body.  The new stlye dramatically reduced knee pain I was experiencing.  I was thinking my running hobby was coming to an end before the new running style.
