I finally got the
balls nerve to go outside for a run. I HATE the cold!! It was great to be off that darn treadmill!
Things I always forget while running on the treadmill all winter
- I am not as fast as the treadmill makes me think I am
- I hate hills
- I hate wind
I did 6km. I wasn’t wanting to go to far, as this is my 5th day in a row. I am just happy I was able to get outside and run.
The first 3 km were great! Music was flowing, I was floating along. Until I turned a corner for the uphill portion of the run and got sucker punched in the face by the wind. I felt like a Jack Russell with my head out the car window!
Truthfully it is such a great feeling. The fresh air, the sun shining. I really do love running and am glad I have made it a part of my life! Now that I have a bench mark for my actual running condition….I know what I need to work on.(Hills and endurance) before these races I have scheduled.
