Today's Workouts

Date 2/9/10

Run #1
Time of Day: 9:00am
Weather: n/a indoor on treadmill
Distance: 3.69 miles
Time 32:45 Pace: 8:50
Running Shoes: New Balance
Back Pain: 2
Comments: I hate the treadmill but the roads are still bad and even if I run on them there is no shoulders or sidewalks to escape the cars.

Run #2
Time of Day: 10:00pm
Weather: snow/sleet/freezing rain
Distance: 7.06 miles
Time 1:09:51 Pace: 9:54
Running Shoes: Asics Trail Attack with screws added
Back Pain: 2
Comments: Night time run in heavy snow which changed to sleet and freezing rain half way through the run. 3 inches on the ground so far heading to 10 inches or so. This on top of the 27 inches we had on Saturday. To increase traction I screwed about a dozen screws into the soles of my running shoes. They helped quite a bit.

ARe those really screws in YOUR sneakers?


Katie said...

I just read on another runners blog about yak traks (not sure if I spelled that right). . . you do not have those? I would expect the Imelda of running shoes would . . . they look like tire chains for your shoes.

M25M - yeah just regular screws that i screwed into the bottoms of the shoes. they work pretty well

katie - friends of mine in northern climates have yak-traks but dont like them much, they use screws more often so thats what i tried. usually its not a problem around here. stupid snow.
just got back from a 5 mile run with Bryan
