Tonight "L" and I got together for what was suppose to be a several mile training session using the 2:2 interval; however, due to numerous intermittent slippery spots, we elected to just walk. We ended up going 2.5 miles in about 38 minutes. Not a break neck pace . . . but that was to ensure we didn't break our necks on the icy path. I was pretty disappointed in the condition of the route. I had hoped that walkway would have been cleared better. I had always considered it my "go to" route in case the city streets would be impassable. Bummer!
The temp was 18 degrees with a windchill of 10 degrees. 10 degrees - BRRR! I decided to wear tights, french terry pants, a long sleeve compression shirt, a long sleeve cotton t-shirt, and my bright yellow reflective shirt. I wore a bondi band (says "Looks like walking, feels like running") and a knit cap. I also had a scarf and gloves.
We began our walk at around 5:15 so it was definitely getting dark quickly. The icy patches weren't terribly difficult to see the first 1.25 miles as is it was still light; however, parts of the way back were treacherous.
We had a good time chatting and are looking forward to going to cheer on "C's" youngest daughter tomorrow night at her swim meet. Good luck "B"! We promise not to embarrass you . . . too much!
