Saturday (43,800 steps) - Up early for our longest training run YET of this nonsense marathon training. It was INSANELY foggy on the drive down, and even though the forecast was for nice weather, I ended up keeping a jacket on for the first half as the fog cooled down the air. The first few miles were fine, but I REALLY struggled through this one. I certainly hope the next long run is better! Love running with Heather though.

Monday (19,147 steps) - I took the day to hang out with A - we planned on "Rebecca and Ariel's day of fun - and we had a "schedule" to keep so I still had to get up early for my run. I had 5 on schedule, but when I woke up the wind was howling and I was DREADING THIS. It was seriously the windiest weather I have EVER run in. I turned around at 2 miles. I felt like my face was morphing and the wind kept pushing me off the sidewalk (literally, this is not an exaggeration). My legs were tired, I was working incredibly hard, it was MISERABLE, AWFUL, TERRIBLE. I would consider this in my top ten of worst runs EVER.
|As an aside, I love my new ERS ambassador top! Super comfortable!|
|Can you even tell it is windy? Because it was!!|
