I just wanted to report in for inquiring minds! My long run this morning went fantastic! I ran 7.04 miles!
Now, I think it was a NSV (or just shows I'm addicted to running, one or the other!), I work up this morning about 730, and I heard it raining outside, it was raining hard, so I rolled over and went back to sleep. I finally got out of bed around 830, and it was still raining. I've been fighting a cold and bad allergies the last couple days too, so I didn't feel real hot.
Well I checked the radar, and it looked like the rain would be out of here in an hour or so, so I ate my oatmeal and hung out, and about 1030a I left for the run, instead of scrapping it.
Now in the good ol' days, I would've used any excuse possible to get out of exercise, allergies and not feeling well would've been good enough, let alone rain.
But, I went out, and I had a great run, the roads were muddy, so I got a bit wet and dirty, but it was part of the fun, dodging the mud puddles. The sun came out about half way through the run, and it started to get very gorgeous. I made sure to pace myself, and started off very slow, so I could be sure I had enough energy to get through the 7 miles. And I did, I finished and I felt great!
I hope you guys have great Sundays, I'm off to finish watching my Lions get their butts handed to them.
