Why do I run? TO STAY WARM!
Got out tonight for a semi-easy run with the Tuesday crowd. B didn't give us a break even though CK was missing in action and we still did hill repeats. I challenged myself tonight and stayed with B and B2 on three of the 4 repeats. I died on the last one. Next week maybe :) It was pretty icy out, especially on the trail on the first hill. We were literally taking baby steps up the first loop around. We moved to the road for the hill repeats.
1st 2 mile loop plus a little: 21:20.89
2 mile marker to the hill: 1:30.23
Hill Repeats (up,down)
1: 1:00.20, 1:51.54
2: 57.35, 1:44.67
3: 53.01, 1:47.73
Rest of the 2 mile loop: 16:41.38 (S had a GPS tracker that said we were at 4.6 miles here, 48:56 so far)
2 mile loop: 18:45.23
Total Time 1:08:27 approximately 6.6 miles average pace:10:22 blah. Like I said we were taking it easy. (Except for the hills where I was obviously running my a$$ off)
I wore two technical long sleeved shirts tonight, a cheap pair of tights, my new underarmour fleece pants over those, gloves, a medium weight jacket, and a head warmer. I ended up shedding the jacket and the gloves and was quite comfortable. My legs felt great, nice and cozy in my new underarmour, and since I was wearing two layers those weren't sweaty and were a nice cozy alternative to my jeans for dinner at Hoggies afterwards :) I broke down and got ribs tonight, they were excellent. Does anyone else feel that they go out, get in a good run, then throw it all away by eating whatever the heck they feel like? That is totally my case. Thank goodness I love running so much or I definitely would not fit into half my clothes!
