Read my posts with the following stupid accent: Circum-polar region
Contrast, vision and snowrunning

So I have poor vision. Farsighted, with normal age-related nearsightedness coming to nibble the other side.

When running, I first had my regular 'progressive' lenses, but noticed that the ground in my near-vision was blurred.

I switched to single-vision, with good results, but I still had trouble with contrast (if that is the right term) when running through snowpacked trails.

I've tried clear, coated, tinted and reflective lenses, with no difference. I would consider polarized lenses, but when I use my photography 'circular polarizer', it doesn't seem to make a lot of difference in the snow. (maybe due to diffraction in the snow)

Because of this, combined with icing lenses and other problems, I have 'drilled' running blind. I practice a slightly different step when I don't know what I am stepping into. It allows me to run some segments I can't see, but is kind of like giving up on vision, rather than learning to see better.

A friend stopped to say hi recently. He's and old guy who used to live in the neighbourhood. He was a bodybuilder and as I started being more fit, he was quite helpful about things.

He's a lot smaller now. Been wrestling with rhumetoid arthritis, and on the fence about methyltrexate. Tough times for him.

He is interested in running, and thinks it might be a good low-risk choice for fitness, since his heavy lifting days are over.

His vision is quite a bit poorer than mine, and I have a renewed interest in improving vision in those circumstances. So if any of you have ideas, please toss in.

My nutrition is pretty spot-on, but this admonishment is a damned good reason to eat more carrots.
