7.0

7 Miles last night and crap was it cold. I wore a T shirt under a pullover Brooks running top I got a couple a years ago on sale since it is some wierd brown orange color. I still wore some long shorts since my legs really don't feel cold after the first mile. It was about 37 degrees when I got back to the house, but the wind was whipping up to around 10 mph some times.

The best part of my day yesterday was standing in the hot shower for about 10 minutes just soaking up the hot water.

My time really sucked based on my 10 minute pace Wednesday. I felt really run down the last 3 miles. I may have not took in enough carbs. My calf muscles are sore this morning, but thank goodness its a rest day for me.

26 degrees this morning here and forecasted to get down to 20 tonight. I will have to load up the wood stove in my living room this evening.

It is harder to get out when it is cold. But I have to remind myself of how much I love it after the first couple of cold an painful miles.
