What’s the old song… “Windy” ? It was in my head this morning. In the song they talk about everyone loving Windy. Ha! I did not love the wind-y this morning! Holy crap, running against the wind sucks. I tried to convince myself that it was good training, running with resistance!
I woke up and checked the temp, a whopping 38 degrees! A heat wave! I only ran in my knock off Under Armor shirt by Danskin (found at Wal-Mart for 10 bucks! I don’t like Wal-Mart, but when plus size running gear is hard to come buy, you gotta do what you gotta do!), my normal sweat wicking shirt, my running pants and and a fleece headband. I felt so light with out my fleece coat on!
Then I stepped outside. Gah the wind was terrible. It did make it a little cooler, but I knew once I got going I would be just fine and glad that I didn’t have my fleece.
Here are my run stats:
Pace: 13:25 min/mi
Distance: 2.54 miles
Not a bad run, in fact it was a great run. I felt great for most of it, and I even at one point got lost in thought in my head, which has never happened to me before! I usually think about my run the whole time, how far I’ve come, how far I have left to go, what is sore, what isn’t sore, how my shins feel, how my lungs feel, if I am hot, if I am cold. But…for a few minutes this morning I was lost in thought, granted I was thinking about the shirt I was wearing….. I’m such a dork!
