Day 36 - On the Rocks!
Brrr...can you feel that? So I wasn't exactly "frozen" this morning....but at 45 degrees I was definitely chilled "on the rocks"! And I gotta say.... I love it! I could see my breath as I was running and there was a definite chill in the air. I felt fantastic this morning. The dingo and I pulled out 5 miles no problem. Felt great. The pain in my quads is essentially gone. My right, outer calf felt pretty tight, but it loosened up as the run went on. I was able to stay under my goal of 9:50/mile, with the exception of the first mile. I know I'm still snail-paced....but that only means room for improvement, right?! I even felt pretty good yesterday. A sign of progress, I hope! Tomorrow we'll do 8 miles. I kind of like that for the next 5 weeks, the week day mileage stays the same. 5 - 8 - 5 + the weekend long run. I can't believe M-day is 6 weeks away. I hope I can keep feeling good!
