Running this week has gone really well so far. I have run three times since Monday, only two more runs to go. Recently the run hasn't been the hard part its going out in the cold. After every run all I want is roasted red pepper tomato soup with grilled cheese, three dinners in a row.
Great 4 mile run, would have gone farther if I had time. It surprising how much my body seems to remember about running. Even if I only run once in a while my body gets right back into it. I was surprised on Monday how easy 4 miles felt, it was fun. I am just constantly in shock over the difference in running this year compared to last. Its a whole new game. Monday was great. I ate alot of sugar after, oops.
Was a fast three mile run. I didn't have much time to get into it and there was alot of traffic on the sidewalk. Good and easy, pretty good speed.
SO COLD. Running in the cold is hard. It is nice not to be as thirsty all the time but so painful. I decided to run the Ben Franklin Bridge (windddy and cold). I am trying to practice hills on a weekly basis since the DC marathon is hilly. Hopefully it will pay off. I felt pretty good about the run. I didn't have my watch so I have no idea of the timing. I ran around 6 miles in total.
The rest of the week I hope to run another 6 miler and 12miler. I know that the 11-12 miler will happen but I am having a hard to fitting in the other 6 miler.
Feeling like I am in marathon training, woot.
