I went on a comparatively early run in my new Asics trail runners. I have worn them about for the past two days to break them in, but my feet still felt a bit stiff.
Conditions were windy, though not that cold (-2 C), so I ran a variation of the Franklin St. route to and around MIT, then back. I overdressed in tights, short and long sleeves, a windbreaker, and gloves. I continued The Guns of August
(currently listening to the adventures of the Goeben
), as I have finished Into Thin Air
. I held to a steady 4/4 breathing, though with some congestion, my respiration is impaired.
Of late, when reflecting on training and competition, I have had the following songs involuntarily in my head:
Summon the Heroes
The Theme from Crimson Tide
And, improbably, Remember the Name
