is 6 days away. the unhealthy air has limited my training plans. i've struggled with a really bad attitude...feeling frustrated with being unable to run, and being unwilling to move to a different indoor activity...that adds up to crankiness because of lack of exercise. it's just generally been an unpleasant few weeks in the smoke all around.
yesterday, the air cleared, so i went out to see if i could do 10 miles, walking and running. i did it--10.38 miles in 2 hours and 45 minutes....it sounds incredibly slooowww, but i am just happy i made it.
it's unclear if the event will take place...they're monitoring air quality....i'm ready to do it if i can. my pace won't be great, but i'm hoping to say i did a half-marathon this time next week.
