5 More Miles

It seems like the wonderful winter weather that we were supposed to get didn't quite make it.  It was a little bit too warm outside.  So we were able to go out and run.  Now there were a few snowflakes falling during the run and if they hit you in the eye it was like a little ice dagger but the roads were not slick and it was a mice run. 

Today we actually ran a totally new route.  In an attempt to stay off the main road where there is lots of traffic and it is colder because of the wind we winded in and out of smaller side roads.  It was a much more entertaining run because there was no set direction or route.  Basically, I just ran around town trying to find huge hills to make my partner run...hahahah!

When we started to wind down the run we were almost exactly 4 miles, but my running partner being the inspiration that she is told me that it was more impressive to tell people you ran 5 miles than 4, and somehow convinced me to run one more mile.  I was ok with the one more mile but I made sure to complain about it just a little bit so that I could be heard!  All in all it was a good run.  Hopefully we have one more run on Friday morning before surgery.  I don't know if I am allowed to run the day of surgery or not so I have to call the surgery center and find out.

Tonight....we box!

I have gloves and now I have mitts. I am just loving this workout and I am amazed at how tough it is.
