Thanks for bearing with me as I get my life going in Boulder. I started my job yesterday (!), and finally got on the treadmill after more than two weeks of no cardio. I didn't feel as bad as I thought I would, but my knee was a little cranky. My Rock Tape is in a box with the movers, so I won't get that until my stuff is delivered. I did 2.25 miles yesterday, with intervals, and I'll slowly build back up to the 4 miles I was doing before the move. I have been trying to be good with strength training, but even that has been a little sporadic. The holidays usually aren't this scattered, but then, I usually don't move to a different state.
I knew the Boulder Creek path was close to my new building, but I didn't know how close. As in, the back of the parking lot close. I certainly see myself taking advantage of that in the summer. I'll bring clothes to change into after work, lock everything in my car, and do my run at the end of the day. I'll definitely be using it on the weekends.
One thing I'm in the market for now is a running jacket. My mom gave me hers from Boston, and I think that'll give me some time to look for one. Maybe I could have some good luck and find a good jacket on sale in the spring. If skiers can find good deals in the after-season sales, maybe runners can too. There are a few places I can check, once I know what the weather pattern is here. I've been told spring brings the big snowstorms, not winter. I'll have to get through the coming spring to see what I'm up against versus Mother Nature.
