Wanted to share my recent blog post from the Saucony blog!! I’d also love to hear some of your tips for traveling and running!
Saturday I ran 12 miles before the winter storm hit us on Sunday. I don’t know about you but I find winter to be the most challenging season to be a runner. The last two miles I wanted to be home and in a warm shower so I picked up the pace. My overall time for the run was 1:35:11. I randomly noticed post run that I started at 11:11 – love it when I see numbers like 11:11 that make me happy.
- Mile 1: 8:23
- Mile 2: 8:45
- Mile 3: 8:52
- Mile 4: 8:26
- Mile 5: 7:52
- Mile 6: 7:45
- Mile 7: 8:16
- Mile 8: 8:12
- Mile 9: 8:08
- Mile 10: 7:17
- Mile 11: 6:43
- Mile 12: 6:19
Sunday I ventured out in the snow thinking that it might be nice and peaceful out – the roads were VERY slippery and I found it hard to find my footing. I decided to call it a day after 2 miles and head back inside to spend the snow day with my family. I do love training but it’s always nice when you don’t feel like you HAVE to run or you are messing up your training.
- Mile 1: 8:18
- Mile 2: 9:01
I’ve been thinking about my New Years Goals – I prefer goals over resolutions – and one of those goals is to start fresh in 2014. I don’t want things both physical, like junk around my house, or mental, like an email inbox overflowing, cluttering my mind. Yesterday my husband and I spent hours going through the kitchen, closets and cabinets – throwing things out and finding things to donate. Today I have spent a good portion of the day working through the emails in my inbox one by one. It feels good and I almost feel lighter mentally in a way – if that makes any sense. My inbox is down to less than 40 emails and that fact in and of itself makes me want to jump up and down for joy!
What are some of the goals you have for 2014 that aren’t running related?
