This morning I got up a little early so I could do my strength training before my run. I did that for 25 minutes, took the kids to school, then headed out for my run. Even though there was a fresh covering of snow on the ground, I had a good run and even PR'd my 5K! I wasn't going for speed necessarily when I started, but around mile 2 I checked my stopwatch and realized I was on pace to beat my record, so that motivated me to keep going strong. My previous 5K (3.2 miles) time was 32 minutes, and today I did it in 30 minutes exactly! I won't be breaking any speed records, but it felt great to see personal improvement.
