Another very cold run today. Yesterdays run with Uncle Mike the cold didn't get to me so much. Today however I think I had the wrong choice of running venues. I ran straight into the bone chilling wind for the first half of my run. Keeping my approx 9:00/9:30 minute pace it killed me.
I figured I had it made for the way back...nope it just wore me out. In hindsight it would have been much easier to run 10 minute miles out and then 8ish minute miles on the way back. It is all a learning game.
I had to walk a bunch of stretches on the way back but still managed my 2 hour time I was hoping for. My fingers were cold, my face wind burnt, even my Gatorade was frozen solid. Yesterday it just turned to slush. Feels good now though...That which does not kill us only makes us stronger...blah blah blah
