I started training for the Fargo half marathon in February. I logged 60 miles last month and every single mile was on the treadmill. I watched tv, watched my ipod Tudor's season 1 episodes two times, listened to music... but nothing beats the open road.
This morning, it was melty, muddy, icy and 34 degrees... and I did my long run in of 7.5 miles. I was loving it.... well, I didn't love it when I got road sprayed by vehicles speeding by me, but I did love the fresh air. I had a hard-time getting my pace figured out and about popped a lung. I have been relying on the treadmill too much. I definitely need to log more mileage outside. I averaged 8:48/mile, which wasn't too bad for my first outside distance run this year. My brand-new Mizunos will never look the same!I got pretty muddy and had Kippy take this picture of the back of my running tights. Now, got to go shower and get the sweat off and get my gear in the wash. I.LOVE.SPRING!!!
