Well it is currently 29 degrees and brrrrrrrrrrrrr….. that is freaking cold!
The Will Run For Wine Running Group had a nice meeting tonight. We have been a bit sporadic the last few weeks due to the holiday. But I just couldn’t stand another night going by that I didn’t Pile On The Miles.
Since I am still newer to running, running in freezing cold, windy weather is VERY new to me. It would have been a lot easier to say heck with it. But this girl just doesn’t do that anymore! So what does one wear to run in the freezing cold?
Honestly, once we started moving I wasn’t so caught up with the freezing factor. Yes it was cold on my face, but having the gloves on my fingers was so key. I think this saved me.
I am highly considering running in The YMCA Christmas 10k on December 19th. Tonight’s run was a ‘test run’ if you will. I can only assume that in 3 weeks it will be colder and even snowy. Now snow running will be interesting!
We ran 3 miles in 32 minutes and I still had some life left in me even with the blistering cold. If my friend Hannah says she is in (which I’m pretty sure she is) I am going to do it. Cold & all! I have no idea though if my time will beat my previous PR of 61 minutes. But I will never know unless I try!
Shred Day #3:
Ugggghhh! My calves were killing! All the air jump roping and jumping jacks were doing me in. Who knew that those would be the thing to get me! But I have stuck it out now three days. I only have 27 more days to go! Wooooopppeeeeeeee!!!! I surely hope I can keep this enthusiasm up.
