Wimping Out

I know I grew up in ice rinks and all, but I just haven't been able to force myself to go run in the snow and cold. Crossfit on Tuesday killed me (5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats x 12) and I could hardly move my arms Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Today (Saturday) they're finally a lot better, but between the soreness and the cold I didn't run from Monday until today. I decided to run at the rec center for the first time today. I hate treadmills, but one of the rec centers in Parker has a nice track.

11 times around the track = 1 mile and I went around 36 times. After warming up, I ran for 35 minutes straight which is 5 minutes longer than I've ever run before. I have no idea how I did it... I suppose it was all mental, because physically I was hurting. 5 days between runs makes it so hard. I must have looked awful because a girl asked me if I was ok lol. One thing that did make it easier than running in my neighborhood is that it was flat.

Next run is Monday. I guess I need to stick with 35 minutes now that I know I can do it. :)
