Yesterday morning I had plans to meet up with Kim for a long run. Unfortunately it was raining, and we weren't able to meet up. So Mathis and I decided to run this afternoon instead. It was pretty tough to get going... it's was very cold (34 degrees) and gloomy today. I almost chickened out, before we bundled up and headed out there. As always, I am so glad to have done it!!!
We ran 7 miles, and I kept an 11 minute pace. I walked a few times, but overall I felt pretty good. My legs were definitely sore by the end, but I'm just happy I was able to do it. I definitely feel like more of a runner when I get my long runs done. I'm really excited about the Spring races we have coming up -- only three weeks until the Blacksburg Classic, and I definitely want to be in good shape by then.
