I can’t tell you how far I ran last night, because my Garmin’s battery was dead again. Someday, I’ll remember to charge it the morning before a run. Sadly, probably I won’t.
Last night’s run was cold, slow, and painful. My legs have been perpetually sore since last Sunday’s 7-miler, a soreness that I hope will go away once my body gets used to the increased mileage. My hope is that once I do a half-marathon, I can continue running between 8-12 miles on a weekend throughout the year, and permanently get rid of that pain. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Like I said, I don’t know how far I got last night, but I felt like I was slogging through the entire run. Based on previous runs, I think I managed around 3.25 – 3.5 miles, which probably isn’t bad for the 44 minutes I was running. I’ll try and duplicate last night’s run again next week, just to see what the actual distance was. In the meantime, I got out there, despite the cold and wind, and I ran. Go me!
