Fall, roll, run

13K today after work was a little clumsy running, so much that I actually fell somewhere before the 1k mark. I was jumping over a curb, landed on a patch of grass and on my next step, lost footing. I remember falling, realizing midfall there was no way I'd catch myself, and decided to roll. The nice GU gloves I scored at a race expo was thick enough that there was no road rash and only a little scrape on the knee.

Ah, the pains of running. I've actually only fallen about three times while running. Once was while running on ice. This time, I consider myself lucky.

The miles are being done, I really feel like the workouts are really work. Not having sunlight makes a difference. My clock tells me that we get 9 hours and 26 minutes of sunlight right now, too bad I spent it and more indoors at work. Need me some Vitamin D.

Been trying out some iPhone running apps. I'm liking the iMapMyRun+. Here's today's route that includes a big hill at the 6.5K mark.

Ouch! Glad to hear the fall was minor. I am really not a fan of these conditions at all.... dark, cold, slick. Is it March yet?

Ack! Glad you're okay! I've had a few moments out here on the icy trails in RCP - but thankfully it's all melting now!

keep it safe up there!!
