I ran my 10 miles for 2010 this morning.
When I left the house my little temp thingy said it was about 30 degrees.... this was with the sun beaming right on it. I checked the weather online and it was more like 20 degrees, and 57% humidity and a wind chill of... I am not sure, but OMGosh, it was cold.
I bundled up and headed out the door. I run alone, and today felt VERY lonely. The cold, and wind just really pissed me off today. I don't usually mind to much about running alone, but it seems on the first day of the year, while running 10 to celebrate 2010...... it was lonely. Oh well. I got it done and I was very happy about it. I didn't feel all that great. Heavy, sluggish and slow... not a great combo, especially when you are already miserable in the cold. I finished my run in 1:26 min.. not to bad, but I can usually finish a tad faster. Again... oh well. I jumped in the shower and it was such a strange feeling. I hadn't let my body temp rise to room temp, and so when the hot water hit my freezing cold skin, it just felt... not sure how to explain it.... weird. Then the skin started to itch.
Enough whining... I ran my 10 and I am very happy I did.
Happy New Year to you all and may 2010 bring love and happiness.
