Yesterday was long run day and the weather while not particularly cold at 35 degrees was overcast, windy and kept spitting snow at us. My sister has been having problems with her back/hip so she cut out around mile 7 and I finished the last 6.2 by myself, well and Cola of course. It took me 2 hours to run the 13.2 miles.
Here is what it looked like yesterday.
Today's run was supposed to be an easy 6 or 7 miles... I kind of didn't follow the plan very well
I don't know if it was the new playlist I was trying out for my upcoming half marathon, (I have been only listening to podcasts lately) the Starburst jellybeans, or the sunshine or maybe a combination of it all, but the legs felt the need to take it up a notch. The first mile was the slowest at 8:40, after that I decided to just let my legs do what they wanted.
I might have to buy some more of these!
Anyone else look forward to the jellybeans this time of year?
