Finally!! Out on the road for a 10.5 mile run.

At the end of our run yesterday, I told my friend Lisa that we needed proof that we'd been outside on the road for 10.58 miles!!  It was a chilly 24 degrees when we started out at 6 am.  Oddly enough, the first half of the run we felt warmer than the second half.  The wind seemed to pick up, and because we did a loop that has some elevation changes, we could feel the dip in the temperature as we finished up the last couple of miles.  By the time we got back home, our hands were frozen.  Still, it felt so good to get out there and have that sense of accomplishment after a nice, hard, long run.  We ran at a pretty decent pace too, considering we haven't run together in weeks - we averaged 10.02 min./mile.

The rest of my week went equally as well: on Thursday I had a great leg workout followed by a killer Muscle Fusion X class.  On Friday, I couldn't make it to the gym until after cub scout meetings, so I had to go to spin class first, then lifted weights after that for about an hour.

Chris and I ran into my trainer Misty at a local frozen yogurt place on Friday evening and she said she'd be working on my new schedule this weekend.  I'm getting excited about having a couple of training days with her (hopefully this week) as she teaches me what to do with my new routine.

  1. That's an amazingly fast long run with those temps and due to the fact that you haven't been running as much! Wow!
