I was way overdressed for my run this morning. I ran at 5:00 am and I think it was about 55 degrees. I had on my cold gear pants, a tank top, a long sleeve fleece top, hat and gloves! I don’t know what I was thinking BUT it was only 26 Monday morning. I took the gloves off after less then a mile and ended up having to make a potty stop at 2.4 miles and was able to ditch the gloves. I was hot and not in the mood to run. I ran my scheduled 8 miles in 1:21:34 for an average pace of 10:12. SLOW but at least I finished, I thought about quitting at the potty stop. I ran Maple Springs and Amberwood twice then added Creekside and that other subdivision once it got lighter and finished with Maple Springs one more time. I didn’t take my MP3 because I don’t like running in the dark with a headset so I had nothing but my negative thoughts to keep my mind busy.
The kids and I did another mile walk today after school, that is 2 miles for them. I told Casey that Laine has already run 4 miles and she is so upset and wants to try to catch up; Bryce could care less and told me his knee hurt, funny it stopped by the time we got to the end of the driveway.
