wow, ow.

December 24, 2008 (Afternoon)

Exercise Type: Run

Weather: chilly, incredibly windy

well, after 36+ hours of being home and still without my luggage (and therefore running clothes, other than shoes) I decided to just go for it anyways, missing one day of running in Boise is a shame as it is. So, i grabbed one of my dad's running jackets and headed out. Holy crap the hills are brutal here. I was barely moving up Eagle Ridge, and once i got to the top, the wind was so strong it slowed me down even more (I tested it at one point, and it was strong enough to hold me up). Luckily it was a warm wind or else i would probably be missing body parts now. The way back was much faster because of the downhill and tailwind. Thought about going out longer, but a good thing i didn't because that would have just meant another 200+ft and i'm not sure that would have been worth the extra 2 miles. Felt good overall (though my lungs kind of hurt and i've been coughing a lot which worries me) and now i've got all my clothes back, so today was a good day.

Fort Boise, Military Reserve rd, Cottonwood Creek rd, Eagle Ridge trail to Safari back around to cottonwood rd and the Jungle, then back.
