We are having a January thaw so I had to take advantage of it. At 1:30 this afternoon it was partly sunny and 43F outside with a light breeze (from the north, of course). My goal was to run ~8 miles as I headed out. I wasn’t expecting anything great because I’m tired, my cold isn’t completely gone, and while my mind was ready for a run my body was ready to curl up by the fireplace and read.
All was going along as well as could be expected. Translation = my nose was running so much there was no way I could breath through it. At one point I stopped to try to figure out if there was any possible way to breathe through my nose and then kept going. A while later I looked down and fugally-dugally-doo! I must have hit the stop button on my Garmin when I was trying to figure out how to breathe through my nose. Fugally-dugally-doo! I hit the start button and kept on going. In the end, since I was running a 3 mile route I’ve run plenty of times in the past I was able to figure out I missed 1.4 miles on my Garmin. I don’t have total times or accurate averages, but I’m ok with it because I was out there in the sun and warmth.
I wore my new Lululemon gloves today! A sweet friend gave them to me for Christmas and they were perfect today! Nothing else I wore was of great interest today...
The January thaw ends tomorrow because we are expected to get sleet and snow Sunday night. Football tonight and tomorrow (no Packers, but I still need to keep tabs on the games) will keep me plenty busy so I have no reason to go out in the sleet.
Today: 8.47 miles (Garmin: 7.07 mi, 10:09/mi ave)
Week: 20.62 miles
