Running in the rain

Although the weather pretty much sucked today it made for some good running.

When I came down stairs in my clothes my family looked at me a little nuts and said" You know it is raining out right?"

Yes but I HAVE to get out today. The couch is my demon and I have to keep ahead of it or it will swallow me up.

I measured it twice as I thought it was a longer route but still I am extremely happy with the results.

First I ran the whole route-2 miles on the dot. Secondly did it in 23:30.

I am glad to say my body was only getting pretty tired towards the end but my breathing was rough for the last half. The last half also included a hill both up and down. That will need some work but I do not know how to work on it except to keep up the running so on I trudge.

I may have wrote about this already but I am going to use the Cape Abilities 5K as my 1st race of the year. I believe some of my co-workers will be racing too.

Keep it up! Better weather is coming. I am already fighting scheduling conflicts (horse hoof lady coming smack in the middle of the morning!) on day one of my new program. So, I will be delayed today, but don't plan on missing it.
Details, details...

You know you are on the right track when everyone around you thinks you are crazy and stays inside. Welcome to the fun.
