today's run brought to you by: snow!

Yippee!  I felt good enough yesterday to determine that I would be running today.  According to the training schedule, I was supposed to do at least 4 miles.  However, having been sick all week, I really just wanted to do anything.  I made it 3 verrry slow miles before petering out and walking a bit, then I ran another half a mile.  Since I hadn't run since last Sunday's miserable 1.5 miles, I felt pretty good about this.  Also, the weather was gorgeous and I was outside rather than on a treadmill.  

There is one downside to running outside, though.  You have to either schlep your water bottle or go without.  I decided to go without, and I was dying for water halfway through.  When I stopped to walk, I couldn't keep myself from scooping up a handful of the snow that was still on the side of the trail and devouring it.  It was dee-licious.


  1. Sounds like you were pretty determined to get a good workout in! You go girl! :)

  2. You need a running belt that holds your bottle. Seriously, makes all the difference in the world!
