So.. it's halfway here. In about two months, we'll be in Chicago, running the marathon. Yikes. Anyways, Is it fall already? Damn. My long run took me up hills today. A lot of them. And just to spite me, mother nature throws in wind of 30km/h along with 15 degree temperatures.. Not good.
The run went okay though. Since I ran last night, my body ignored the two alarms that were supposed to get me up for 7. So I set out at 8:45 and started off slow. Took lots of walking breaks, particularly after the big hills, just to get my heart back down below 80%. 20.6K (12.8 miles) in 1:48:56.
Again, like the end of all my long runs, I picked it up, mostly because i'm impatient.
It was a step-back week and now I have a big week. But, I also have a camping trip from Monday to Thursday. I told R. I'd like to keep my runs in, but we'll see. Will be on the lookout for good running trails.
Unrelated, like my new header? I got tired at looking at green so I played around with the top until I got what I wanted. A whole lot of soles...
