Nike-

Got up, bundled up, and braved the cold weather for an 8-mile run today. We wanted to try the same route we started on last week, when it was so cold we cut our 18-mile run down to 9 miles -- because Wil likes the idea of getting a chunk of mileage done before we head out on the Burke Gilman towards the U District... and because we've got a 20-miler scheduled for next week.

Again, the run down to Golden Gardens was fine -- it was just that, upon turning around, we had a headwind blowing off the water that was bitterly cold. We ran on the trail side of the road this week, rather than directly along the water, but it didn't really help much. So we'll see how it goes next week.

Feeling a little grouchy because my Nike+ sensor -- though it read the run, gave me a result, etc., didn't seem to "save" the run... bearing no record of it, and therefore it didn't add to my mileage for the year. I'm still quite a ways from my 500 miles in 09 goal (with the sensor), so today's 8 would have been useful. Oh well, we'll see how it goes... the important thing, of course, is that I ran it and felt okay. :)

(Must admit that I have a bit of pain in my right leg... perhaps from too much skipping yesterday?)
