Running just seems to get harder and harder these days, with the cold weather for me. I was in on the treadmill two days but today it was 55 degrees so I was actually able to get outside! It felt good to be out but it’s definitely harder than being on the treadmill, and can be an adjustment for me.
On Tuesday I did a shorter run on the treadmill, and was pretty happy with the pace I kept.
Thursday it was another treadmill run, which I did for the same amount of time but I got a little further than I had on Tuesday with a faster pace, so I’m definitely happy to see improvement!
The schedule had a 6.5 mile for the weekend, and I was very fortunate that it was warm on Sunday so I could actually do my long run outside. It actually started out really hard, but got easier after about two and a half miles. Maybe I just had to get back into the feel of running outside! But ultimately a pace I’m very happy with for the distance!
