This week was kind of a downer for me in terms of running. I did go back and get in the 7 mile run that I had skipped last week, but then the 4 mile run I was supposed to do this week got cut short. I hate having to deal with all of this cold!
On Tuesday I hopped on the treadmill for my usual weekday run. Good pace and it felt pretty good, so no complaints other than I wish I didn’t have to be on the treadmill!
Wednesday I got in that 7 mile run that I had skipped. I was actually really pleased with it – I was only 1 second off my best pace for a run in between 6-8 miles. Thank goodness it wasn’t freezing that day and I could actually run outside!
Friday I attempted the 4 mile run but it was just too cold for me. My lungs were really hurting so I decided to stop. The whole weekend was very cold, so I tried to go to the gym Saturday after work. Well, turns out my gym closes at 1pm on the weekends 😦 So I never did get that 4 mile run in, but I guess 1 mile is better than nothing.
I’m trying to figure out where I’ll fit 4 runs in this week, what with the holidays and all of the traveling we’ll be doing. Wish me luck, as I’m supposed to be doing a 9.5 mile run at some point!
