It was chilly in the Northeast today! We kicked on the pellet stove and commenced winter hibernation this morning.
It got to about 50 degrees by 1 pm, so I decided it was a good time to head out for a run. My goal was to try for 10 miles, but I wasn’t sure how I’d do since I haven’t done much running since the Tower of Terror 10-Miler. Once I got out into the cool air, I knew I’d have no problem hitting that distance. As much as I don’t enjoy the winters here in the Northeast, it makes for really good training weather! Here’s a quick photo recap of my run…
I got the full 10 miles in and then some! I even cut 8:30 off of my Tower of Terror 10-Miler time from 2 weeks ago! It’s amazing what cooler temperatures and no humidity will do for you. I had some shin splint issues in the beginning and tight calves towards the end, but overall I felt really strong and was super happy with my performance.
So how do I celebrate a 10 mile training run?? With Mexican food of course!
Did you get a long run in this Saturday? How did it go?
