PM: 5.8 miles in 60' on the treadmill

Lowest mileage since 2012, which was my second full year of running. I don't think I will write much of a reflection this year. I ran one race, which went better than expected. Training was, save for the late September though early December, unstructured.

I'm going to get back to consistency and continue working on my foot.

PM: 7.1 miles in 65' on the treadmill.

First day of the winter semester. I have so few students I feel guilty about it. I also worry about class dynamics, but the grading is going to be LIGHT.

Foot feels fine. However, it does NOT like running on flat ground even at the slowest of jogs even on gym mat surfaces. I can't quite figure that out since I can run hard on the treadmill with no issues (other than being insanely out of shape)
