Running in the rain is sometimes one of my favorite things because it makes you feel so alive and young.
But running in a freezing downpour is not the ideal way to start your day. I took a super hot shower and now I’m in bed and I’m still cold.
I am 150% more drenched than I look ☔️☁️ - also freezing, I am freezing.
I only did 5 miles today, out of the planned 12. This was due to a few factors: Rain/freezing cold making my legs struggle to move, feet hurting (due to old shoes, new shoes on their way!!!), general stress about how much else I have to do today. Physically I could have gone 12, and I was crushing it pace-wise. So I’m feeling okay about this run.
Currently debating dropping down to the half marathon and doing a full the month after Hartford. Why? Because I think I could PR a half right now, and then probably PR the full if I had the extra month. But I’ve done all my long training runs so I know I could just do the full, and mentally it’s tough for me to not when I know I can. I might just be nervous.
I will update my training log on here tomorrow or something.
