I'm Back Bitches

Well well well. Were you all wondering where the Leah who goes out to run even if she doesn't feel like it has gone? Well I was! I was getting so tired of whining about the weather and how tired I was and how really, I could play catch up next week, or the next day or whatever.

Jason and I are now walking to and from the train station since I am going to still be whiney about biking in cold as I hate it, so that is about 6.4 miles of walking a day. After getting home last night, it was raining and chilly and unpleasant, but I put my running clothes on anyway and headed out.....and I felt it. You know that feeling when you are running that brings back all those warm and cuddly feelings about running like "how it's really a part of who you are" and "my gosh running so flippin fantastic". We did 5 miles in cold wet windy conditions and felt good. Coming in at 44:11 makes for another run with sub 9 minute miles.

Tonight it's dinner at Rockit and then I'm thinking 2 on Friday, 4 on Saturday and 6 on Sunday. I would usually do the lower amount on Saturday but we are probably going to be metraing it back out to Wheaton for one more weekend of having our car....someone didn't finish his paper route. So will want to use to run to get us to the train station.

Next week we start adding on distance and start the push to get to 35 miles a week to be ready to Pfitz our way to Marathon time!

Nice job on the walking, you two. It really does feel good to walk instead of taking the bus to and from places. The mileage really adds up very quickly.
