Day 129.

That sparkling in my driveway is not a bunch gems fumbled by clumsy jewelers. It is ice. A thin layer of sparkling ice. Very pretty. Very slick.

Rebecca met me at 5, and for the first time during her training cycle, she is doing more mileage than me. Made a managerial decision last night and opted to throttle back mileage to let the achilles recover. So this morning, I cut the run short at 3, and she is going for an extra 5 to make up for missing yesterday's run.

Warmer this morning, which was fantastic. This was a very nice, very controlled, zone 2 run. Nothing too hard on the feet. Finished up with 15-20 minutes of stretching. Going to ice the foot for a bit as I enjoy a cup of coffee.

Cutting back the mileage has another unintended benefit - time. The kitchen is cleaned up and the coffee brewed already. I'm sure the wife could get used to this.

Have a great day everyone! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
