I went for my long run yesterday. It was supposed to be an hour but I cut it short at 55minutes. It was -28C with the wind chill and I was bundled in 5 layers of clothes. Once I got moving the cold did not bother me....unless my neck thingy slipped below my ears but that was nothing that could not be fixed.
So my legs felt pretty good. My lungs are not a problem and my energy was good. I took a walk break every 15 minutes or so to rest my knee as I am increasing my distance.
After running 35 minutes I looked at my watch and thought really??? 25 more minutes of running? I wanted to stop. Not because I HAD to but because I was bored of running. Was it because it was so cold? Was it because I did not have my friend to chat with? Not sure but the thought of running longer than an hour or training for a Marathon bored me.
Sigh..... Oh well. I bet when the sun starts shinning again and I can enjoy its warmth on my face I will look forward to my long runs again.
Till then I'll just keep putting one foot in front of the other and remembering my goals.
