If you look at my profile pic, this is me celebrating my run afterwards, sitting on a snowdrift! I was giving a thumbs up, but you can't see it, I also just noticed I look quite stunning after an hour of running in freezing temps! At least my Buff and Lipstick coordinate!
We were blessed to get 14"-16" inches of the lovely stuff a few days ago. Tonight we are in a severe weather alert predicting several more inches as well as blizzard conditions of snow, ice, wind and white-out visibility. SPRING! Where are you??
This prompted Steve and I to venture out for our run this morning before round 2 of the storms hit. We are just starting Week 6 of our 10K training and have a few more runs to "Graduation" Today was 60 minutes/1 full hour of continuous running and we did it!!! YIPPPEEE!!!
Steve will probably post his results so I won't share his info other then to say I am very proud of all he has achieved!
I ran a full hour and covered 5 miles which I believe is just over 8K. Not at the 10K distance, but I still can't do a 30 minute 5K, so I'm happy with my time. Besides, I just ran 5 non-stop miles when 6 months ago, I struggled to run 1 minute!!!!
I remember back to looking out my window at a crazy runner, running in the snow and I thought they were insane... now guess who's doing it?? I found out melted snow re-frozen (black ice) either really makes you slow way down or picks up your pace quite nicely depending on how you land on it!
6 months ago we started C25K, graduated 2 months later by running 30 continuous minutes. 4 months later, we are now running 60 continuous minutes. 1 full hour, how awesome is that????
So, party at the Hall household!!! We have plenty of snow and probably plenty of booze, but feel free to bring your own bottle if you want! The snow will keep it all nice and chilled! CHEERS!
