My alarm goes off every morning at 5:30am. On non run days, I usually hit the snooze button 3 to 4 times. On run mornings, I used to be able to still snooze it 3 to 4 times, because the furthest I was running was like 1.36 miles. Well…now that I am running further, and have acquired a higher amount of gear, my days of snoozing are gone.
Running in the winter is the worst. It seriously takes me like 10 minutes to get myself ready.
Here is the list of everything I put on to run this morning:
2 sports bras
iPod, set up and ready to go with my nike+
If I have to add a pair of tights to that list, then it takes another 2-3 minutes, as I always manage to get my tights twisted.
They were a little pricey, but the fleece gloves I’ve been running in a WAY too hot. Same goes for the hat that I have. Unless it’s 5 degrees out, then it’s ok.
Both the hat and gloves were perfect on my 28 degree run this morning. They have some cool features too, the hat has a little pony tail hole in the back and the gloves have a spot on the palm for a key. Love it!
Last but not least, my running stats for this mornings run:
Pace 14:15 min/mi
Distance: 2.22 miles
Temp outside: 28 degrees.
Still that slower pace, but it’s all good.
