Ran 7 miles Saturday morning and it was cold. Really cold about 25 degrees. I even wore tights, despite my aversion to them. I even wore gloves -- and that was an outstanding idea. My hands didn't get cold, big plus.
I run a fairly hilly course -- the elevation gain is almost 450 feet from top to bottom, and I end going uphill. Some people may sneer at that, but going up and down many times is very challenging and makes Central Park seem flat.
At end of run I drank my usual recovery drink, chocolate milk. I bought the fancy Power Bar recovery drink, and guess what the first three ingredients are: milk, sugar and cocoa powder -- same as chocolate milk. But costs twice as much. Back to chocolate milk for me.
I also tried G2 the new Gatorade drink, but my Gatorade thoughts are a separate entry entirely. Not a fan of G2 as I will explain in later post.
