A So-so Return to Running
After a viral ear infection kept me sidelined for a few days, I returned to the great outdoors today for some exercise. I wanted to mix some jogging and walking so as to not overdo it, but I was feeling pretty good. I thought choosing a route with some hills (uphill is when I did the walking) would be a good compromise. Those of you from Stamford know that Palmer’s Hill Rd is named so for a reason so that’s the route I picked. I knew there were some parts of the route that would be sans sidewalk , but I definitely underestimated the length of those stretches. Nearly all of Stillwater Rd and Palmer’s Hill were devoid of sidewalks, making this run a bit too stressful for my tastes. Too many trucks and other large oncoming vehicles moving at clips in excess of 35 mph and lots of exhaust fumes flying up my nose. Not the greatest reintroduction to jogging, but it felt good to get back out there. I posted my stats below. As an aside, I still haven’t been able to fix the new post email notifications for those of you who have registered for them. They’re only going out on random posts, so often I post and no one is notified.
