I got home from a 2.5 mile hike/walk this morning with nothing better to do so I figured I would start my training. 1st run = 3 miles (I actually went 3.26). After mapping out a route AHEAD of time (see I am learning) I was on my way. Mostly I just went because I was dressed in all of my new duds, wish I had taken a picture. I timed it so when I got back it would be lunchtime (you can eat lunch at 11, right?). Here is how the run went...
First two blocks- I got this, I'm a rockstar.
1/2 mile- How do people run in the cold without fogging up their sunglasses?
1/2-1 mile- Glasses off, face mask on (it was only 20 degrees, hard.to.breathe)
1 mile in- Screw this, I am too awesome to not wear glasses. Mask off, glasses on. (really I couldn't sing with the stupid mask on, who needs to breathe anyways)
The rest of the run went like this.... I am freezing, can't breathe, who put this song on my ipod, and darn hills. REPEAT!
All and all it wasn't too bad of a run. I cannot wait for my tights to get here. I wore two layers and was still a little chilly on the bottom. Everything else rocked! (I wore my ski socks, I guess I should invest in some better running socks) 11:40 mile, WOW I need help on that. So nearly six miles in a day, not too shabby. Maybe I will get a little crazy later and hit the TM for some intervals (the only way I can figure out how to do them)
PS- Lunch was awesome, I have to admit I am a little tired, that is good right? Still wishing you could see my rocking look (I actually matched for once).
