It was snowing this morning, so I wasn't sure I'd be going out today, but then it stopped and melted and by early afternoon it was dry and gray but not terrible. So I pulled on all my layers, including my new wind resistant top, gloves and smartphone band and went out.
And felt like it was a real slog. Had a really good run on Tuesday but today I really had to fight the urge just to stop. That said, according to mapmyrun I also logged my first km at < 9 minutes (8:55). Legs really shaky when I got in.
It was definately more a mental struggle than a physical one today. Writing about it to encourage myself to keep going. And although I didn't enjoy the run, I do have a little glow of achievement from having stuck with it !
