Sooo...Not much to report here except that it WAS SO COLD IN TEXAS I THOUGHT IT WASNT SUPPOSED TO BE COLD THERE AND OMG I DONT HAVE THE RIGHT KIND OF CLOTHING FOR SUB-20.
But seriously, I don't own a single pair of long socks. I only own hidden Balega socks and don't even own a single pair of boots that doesn't have a heel, and I refuse to wear heels because they're so bad for your feet. So, I was THAT person who was wearing socks with canvas loafers into the office. Trend setter over here.
Work is really hectic right now, so I'll take it as a win that I even walked out of the hotel lobby with laced up running shoes. Especially considering the two-hour time difference from Tejas to Cali plus the sub-20 degrees, I'll take it! Out of the 4 mornings in Plano, I ran on 3 of them and even managed some strides on Friday!
Even if my mileage during the work days was low, I made up for it on Saturday when I did a long run with Ben, Oscar and Tom through the Los Altos hills. If there's ever a point in my life where I don't feel like doing hard efforts during the week, I still would like to put in the hard weekend long run. There is something so satisfying about completing a long run with friends.
After just a few short days in sunny California, I'm off again on Monday to head back to Texas. This time, however, it's going to be much warmer. Phew.
