Today’s Run: Hill Repeats

I wasn’t even going to brave the weather today (17° and gusty winds) but I layered up and headed out the door. After a rough first mile, running on wooden legs, I approached the hill and got down to business and started my hill repeats. And I’m so glad I got out there as I started to feel amazing after my first pass. My goal was to do three repeats at a 10 mile minute pace. And I finished with a 10:04 pace and nailed the repeats, I could have pushed through one more repeat but I ran out of time and had to head home.

I just completed an activity with Runkeeper http://runkeeper.com/activity?userId=15259197&trip=742315186

Blind Girl Runs

20160204_103153And falls down! Dang speed bump and cobblestone road combined to bring me down. Thankfully, I didn’t break my face or anything else, just got a bit of road rash. I think it might be time for a beer. hah. Falling down, injuring myself or running into other runners is always on my mind when I’m out running or racing. It’s a lot to concentrate on and then to also concentrate on the actual running part of running. I’m just super glad I didn’t smash out my teeth or break my face.

And on tomorrow’s run, I’ll be a bit more careful. I promise.
