...you realize that having toenails is overrated. :( OUCH! Again. I have one that is in the painful stage of death and blackness right now, and that makes a total of 5 toenails lost, 6 if you count that one has died, grown back and died again, since I started training for marathons.
This morning, I sucked it up. Even though it's a dreary, drizzly day, I geared up and went out for a run. Alone. It was great. Refreshing. Not too cold, a little windy, but not bad. I set out to do our usual 9 mile loop, but added about a half mile out and back at the turn around point, so by the time I reached back home I had gone a total of 10.17 miles. And other than my annoying toe, I felt pretty dang good. I even noticed that a hill that usually gives me lots of trouble, felt a little easier than normal. I think that I can attribute my new-found cardiovascular strength to spinning. I hope it only gets better.
