Spring, I think I see you, can you stay, please!!!
Well, starting on Friday the weather made a turn for the better. After a snow day from school on Tuesday, I was skeptical that spring was ever going to come, but then we turned the corner and I hope we get to keep it.
I headed out Friday at lunch and was pleasantly surprised at how great it felt. The wind was still a little chilly on my ears, but the rest of me felt great. I made some pretty good time on the run too. All of my miles were under 9:13 and I felt good.
Saturday I planned for 7 and after last week’s sufferfest that was only 5 miles, in the wind so cold I thought I would freeze to death, I was determined to go at least 7. I picked a new path and it was actually 4 miles, so I ended up doing 8. The first 4 were into the wind and I’ll admit it’s a bit of a struggle, but once I turned around, I felt like I could fly! My pace was good throughout even with the few walk breaks I took to survive the run. I was so happy to be outside and I can only hope that the running feels easier once I get used to running outside again.
I think with a forcast like this:
I will definitely be spending my running hours outside this week!
