Winter Run

Well it sure is cold outside and I have gotten my dose of fresh air the past two days. I am now home for Thanksgiving and ran outside yesterday for 5.6 miles and today for 4.37 miles. I didn't time it yesterday but brought my watch today. I felt really really slow and my legs just felt tight and tired but somehow I ended up with a 7:14 min/mile pace. I am not sure how that happen....I am totally not used to hills and so the hills here at my house were TOUGH!!

Tomorrow I plan to get some 400m repeats in at the track and then take off Wednesday to rest up for the Turkey Trot on Thursday! The pain in my foot was sort of there during yesterdays run but I am not sure if my foot was just cold or if it was actual pain. Today it didn't hurt at all so I am assuming that it was just from running on the treadmill.

I am headed to the doctors soon to get blood work and talk to him about my training and effects on my body. Tomorrow I am going to pick up my packet for the race and also look at spikes for track!

Sorry for the sporadic topic post - I am trying to do way too many things at one time right now!! Happy Running!
