Today was long run day for me I should have completed 10 miles. I was looking forward to enjoying the sunshine on the long run that's the only down side to running at 5am you miss out on the daylight. I knew I would be slower this week due to not running but only one day this week. I started out great feeling ok a little slower as expected then we headed out for the second half....in the last couple of miles it was all I could do to keep running the wind was brutal and I do NOT do well with wind at ALL! My chest was hurting my arms was hurting my legs was hurting we was getting close to the car and still had almost a mile to go and I caved in. However I did 9.17 miles and although it was slower it wasn't terrible my overall pace was 10:37 and that included lots of walking!
Next week the weather looks much better and I shouldn't have any problem getting in 3 mornings, today showed me how important those weekly runs are!
I've got a question for YOU.... Are YOU SPARTAN tough?? Ever completed a Spartan Race? What was the Hardest part?
Run Happy ;)
