It was still Polar Vortex cold last night which meant I was on day 5 of no running. Not cool. This morning was sunny, not too windy and in the double digits woo hoo.
I did my usual get bundled up routine and headed out. Now I knew this would not be a PR run by any means. There were some pretty big drifts of snow on my route, plus I haven't run since last Sunday. I just wanted to get my 3.1 in and be done.
I started out my run wearing sunglasses. I say this so you know how surprised I was when about a half a mile into my run it looked like this:
What the hell?!?
I kept on keeping on and trudged my way through the race. I finished. And that's all I can say about that.
On a good note, I actually lost weight this week. I dreaded getting on the scale but knew it had to be done. I'm still not even close to the weight I was when I signed up for myfitnesspal (thanks new scale) but I'm getting there.
Here's the little screen from my Cardio Trainer app. It wasn't a pretty race, but it was a finished race! (I just noticed my miles logged on this equal a marathon. That's pretty cool!)
And this is my lovely morning coffee mug:
I'm switching things up and running a half at the start of April. Not sure if I can handle another one at the end of April. Anyone else run two so close together? Is it possible?
