As I said earlier, today was incredibly cold (for FL) with temps dipping as low as the 30s last night, and today it didn't get above the high 50s. I know that's nothing compared to the cold some of you are currently experiencing, but to hear the words "wind chill" and "frost advisory" here in South Florida, well, it's as close as hell gets to freezing over.
So, this afternoon, I went for a quick 3 miler when I got home from work, and it was tough for me to decide what to wear. I really have a hard time when the temps are in the 50s or 60s: I know how to dress for extreme heat and extreme cold, but temps in the middle kind of baffle me. So, I decided on shorts and a sleevless tee. Mistake. My arms and fingers got COLD! (Yes, I am a wimp and will wither and die if I ever move back to an environment with a true winter.) I so should've gone with the long-sleeved tech shirt that has thumb holes so it kind of functions like a shirt with low-grade gloves. I guess I'll save that one for my run on Wednesday (the cold is supposed to persist all week).
Aside from the cold, the run was pretty good, and one benefit of running in cool weather is that I hardly sweat -- a glorious change of pace. But however nice the run felt, I don't have any digits for it since the Garmin again failed to locate satellites. It's a 205. I've had it for a little more than 3 years, and yes, all the data had been downloaded and deleted, and it was fully charged. Maybe it's got its toes halfway in the afterlife. I don't know. Or, maybe it too was just cold!
