We went for a long run today, as planned. I wasn’t really feeling it, though that tends to be the pattern lately. Either way, I knew I needed to do something so I headed out. The schedule said 6 miles, but it is kind of hard to plan exact routes now that parts of my normal loops are snowed in, so I ended up a bit over (6.4). It felt good… no, it felt great! I felt strong throughout. Wendy seemed perfectly fine for the distance too (it was her longest run ever!).
We’ve been having some warmer weather lately, and I really enjoyed the higher temps during my run. I think we got close to 50º F today – not too shabby. It was foggy too, so the whole neighborhood had a very quiet and peaceful feel. My phone said the humidity was 100%, which felt surprisingly nice. I’ll have to remember this in the summer, when the humidity is high along with the temps!
I feel good about my run today, and optimistic about my progress.
