Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009! This new year came in with a bang as we got another few inches last night and when I woke up this morning it was a nice 0 (ZERO) degrees outside at 8am! I really wanted to go running after being cooped up in the house for over 48 hours since my last running adventure BUT I waited until 11am when it was a warmer 18 degrees!
It was so cold that I just felt like I never warmed up (even though the sun was out). I ran 4.2 miles in 32:52 which just felt like a good pace but I knew that the cold was making me go a little slower. Tomorrow I am headed to the indoor track to do a speed workout and then Saturday I will be running hills again.
For 2008 mileage from March 1st to December 31st I ran 603.42 miles. I would love to have a year where I run 1000 miles but that might have to wait until 2010! hehe! I am content now with decreased mileage for Indoor/Outdoor Track!!
I have a few New Years Resolutions -
1. Start a Gratitude Journal; write down at least one thing I am grateful for each day
2. Encourage my teammates and lead by example
3. Positive thinking/positive attitude
Well that's about it! Hope everyone had a great New Years!!
