OK, technically that was W1D3 of C25K, but I've been going off program a bit.

I bought gloves today-- that helped quite a lot. I couldn't quite find the right fingerless gloves for what I wanted, so I bought a pair of regular gloves at REI and went all glove surgeon on them. They were excellent. I also picked up a TuneBelt to carry my phone, which seems to have solved the problem of resetting the timers. I still need headphones, though.

It's fun being out with all the dog walkers. The meat smoking company that's in the next block from me was smoking up a storm tonight, and it smelled fabulous as I went past. Someday I should really go over there and get some bacon.

My shoulders don't hurt as much tonight as they did last time. My left knee was feeling tight for a while, though. Damn, this getting old thing sucks!

After my last run I had a little chat with Google Maps and figured out how long each block in my neighborhood is. That allows me to do some simple math and figure out how fast I ran. Tonight I was mostly in the 5-6 mph range, but I did one last segment at something like 7.5-8mph. Since I did the last C25K at sub-4MPH, this is a big change.

I'm headed to Vegas later this week. The hotel as a fitness center... I think I'll take my running shoes.

Good work! The main issue I had with running at night is I tend to trip on things. Ended up with some nasty bursitis when I tripped and slammed my knee into the sidewalk a couple of years ago. My shoulders hurt a bit when I run too, I think it's just muscle weakness, especially the one I separated years and years ago. I think they just have to build up like everything else.

Not sure you are wearing a reflector vest but that thing saved me from being roadkill numerous times. Oh yeah and watching out for potholes. HUGE problem.

I soak in Dead Sea Salt Baths or throw in some Lavender Oil into a tub filled with hot water to help achy muscles and yes getting old does SUCK!!!

Have fun at EMBARGO! Not sure which hotel you are staying at with a decent gym but at least most have ok treadmills.

Are you staying at the Venetian? If so I'll see you at the fitness center. And if you want a running partner, I'll go outside with you whenever you want. And don't worry about length or speed, I'm happy just to be out doing something. I was hoping to run at least twice in the four days I'm there.

We're at the Wynn. I have no idea when/if running will show up on my schedule at this point.
