Distance: 5 miles
Time: 44 minutes
Weather: 23 degrees (much more bearable)
Since I did this run 12 hours after yesterday’s run, I took it on the “easy” side this morning. I thought my legs were going to feel tired from yesterday’s 7 miles, but they actually felt pretty good. 🙂
The roads were SUPER slippery around the neighborhoods though. During the day, the sun starts to melt the snow, but then everything refreezes at night again. I cannot wait until I am able to run on dry pavement again! It is these little things that I no longer take for granted!
I know the ABCs of Me have been going around the blog world for a while now, but would it be arrogant if I rewrote some of the ABCs and did my own thing?? I hope no one is offended because I am changing things up a bit:
