Today I ran 10 miles. It was a little bit hard to get out there because it was raining and cold, but that's much better than running in the heat and humidity that we get here in Texas during the summer. I ran through puddles and tried to find the most shallow stepping spots, but most of the time I was dreaming of the hot chocolate I'd drink after my run.
After running The Woodlands Marathon on February 28 (my recap), I took three days off from running and then got back at it with a couple of short runs and a couple of ten milers. All of my runs were at an easy pace except for one. (Photo: the marathon female master's winners.)
Tuesday: walk, strength training (20 min.)
Wednesday: 5 mile run (felt tired only in the first mile)
Thursday: strength training (20 min.)
Friday: 10 mile run (felt great, 2 x 15 min. fast)
Sunday: 6 mile run (6 strides), core work (20 min.)
Monday (today): 10 mile run, strength training: arms (20 min.)
I don't know what's next as far as races go, but I know that I'd like to build my mileage back up just because, well, I like to run!
