Just a quick little post about my 11 mile Saturday morning run.
I tell you, even though I dread dragging myself out of bed and running first thing in the morning it's so nice to be done before 9:30 AM. It certainly gets me up and moving for the day!
I also love being able to study the maps of my runs the night before. just in case none of the people who know the route show up and I get lost. I didn't have that problem today but it made me feel better knowing that I at least had a basic understanding of where we were going.
I really hope the new running shoes I ordered get here soon. I had a $25 gift card to Amazon and the Brooks Adrenaline 10s were on sale for $65.99 with free shipping. I desperately need new shoes. I'm not sure there's any arch support left in my current pair.
You'd think after several years of running in the cold I'd have figured out what to wear. Not so much. I was totally overdressed this morning but thankfully another runner let me stash my second long-sleeved shirt in her car so that I could run in just one long sleeved shirt and my jacket.
And speaking of that jacket, I think it may be the best $25 I've ever spent. Thank you Nordstrom Rack for carrying workout clothes!
The actually running was rather uneventful. I'd planned to do 10 miles at a 9:30 pace and ended up doing 11 at 9:49 but that's okay by me. One can't be expected to run too hard when it's below freezing. Right?
