Woo Hoo! I got to run with my girls this morning!!! It has been awhile and I have missed them! AND I had a GREAT run this morning!!! Felt like I could keep going forever! I haven't felt like that in awhile. Got that runner's high...feels sooo good!!! We ran 5 miles in 51:06 at an average pace of 10:12!!! I will take it!!! It was SUPER cold this morning but when you are all bundled up and there is no wind...it is not too bad!
For what I mean by super cold...look at what my car thermometer said the outside temp was:
Brrr!!!! Yep, I think you can say we are officially CrAzY for running in that kind of weather lol!
Looking forward to my long run on Saturday. I have decided that for my next half-marathon (Rock 'n Roll Mardi Gras in NOLA in February) I am going to do my training a little differently. Before (for the Pensacola Half-Marathon), I ran 3-5 miles twice a week and then did a long run of about 10-12 miles almost every weekend. I am going to revamp training this time and do it the way you are supposed to. I am still going to run 3-5 miles twice during the week but my long runs on the weekend are going to start out slow and gradually build up instead of just running 10-12 EVERY weekend. So Saturday I am going to OFFICIALLY start my training and do a long run of 6 miles. I am trying to avoid overuse injuries...because a lot of the girls I am running with are getting injured. Scares me because I already have little pains here and there that I have to get through...I don't want to get seriously injured for training too hard. Trying to play it smart this go around! :-) Anyway, enough for now! Be back after my 6 miles on Saturday!!!
