11 Miles!!!

I got past 10 miles!!  Wahoo!!!!

Let me just say that December and January were basically a wash for me.  Between the holidays and awful weather, I barely got outside to run.  Weather that I cannot run in is single digits or ice, and we had a lot of that.  At the end of January I got on the treadmill, but that was about it.  So on Thursday, Kristen and I teamed up for our usual run.  We got a sitter, we stretched and headed out, and it promptly began to snow, and the temperature dropped.  I froze to death and opted out at 4.5 miles because I was afraid of injury, my leg muscles were that cold.  I felt terrible (but that feeling was quickly replaced by joy when we ordered our post run pasta fagioli, warm chicken and roasted veggies wrap, and we had a couple of bites from our kids’ pizza, which is the perfect post run meal in my opinion).

Sunday we had an impromptu run – my GPS said 10.5 miles 1 hr 48 min, and on Kristen’s it said 11.1 miles.  Either way, anything longer than 10 miles is my longest run!  It was a great run, too, except for mile 8 where we encountered high winds and the temperature plummeted.  I was not dressed warm enough.  But it was great, all in all.  I’m still working on not feeling like I got hit by a truck after a long run, but at least this time I didn’t have a stomach ache.  In fact, I ate like it was my job after.  It was a good day.  Get out there and run, friends!
