W7D1: 17 degrees and 2.37 miles
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
I completed my W7D1 run this morning before work (yes Q I said before work - I actually woke myself up for it). This run was a 25 minute run and I did take a pause in the middle, but I didn't think 2.37 miles was bad. With my warm-up and cool-down it was 2.8 in 32 minutes.
As for running in the dark, it wasn't bad. I had my new flashers from the Red Coyote on and I left my earbuds out (no music - wahwah). Lincoln didn't get to go with me this time since I wanted to give it a try without wrestling the pooch. He definitely gets to go on Friday though. On a side note, everyone should think about landscape lighting or motion lighting. You can really see the dark spots around people's houses when you run by from both angles and that gives bad people bad thoughts. I know we will be putting some in now.
Anyway, I will go to the next run because I am determined to start on the 5k to 10k program in February and I think it is making me work harder to just forge ahead.
I hope everyone is doing well this very cold winter. ~Z
