midwest winds blowing in.

4 miles -

It's that time of the year again when the winds start picking up around here. I could be positive and look at it as a form of resistance training, somehow aiding me and making me stronger. But I'm not going to because I remember how badly the wind burns, especially when it's cold. Wind nips through your gloves and frost bites your fingers off. I'm serious.

Anyway, today's run was okay. Slow, because of the wind, but I felt alright. It was also dark during the end of my run and I notice that I tend to run slower when it's dark, probably because I can't see where I'm running. Funny thing is that it never seems like I slow down, though it's evident in the time. So yeah, the run was alright, though nothing special. I almost skipped ab stuff because my legs felt a bit sore (the ab routine I do is leg based). I also did another 7 push ups before quitting. (I did 7 push ups on Monday and I felt it on Tuesday.)

I'm hoping to run another 4 miles, or 3 because I'm not sure I'll be able to get any running in later this week. I don't like banking "long" runs so close together at this moment, but 4 isn't anything that will hurt me.

  1. Ughhh, I agree about the wind. It is really depressing for it to get cold AND windy at the same time.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. Your thoughts are appreciated! ^,^
