  • Long run / 14 miles / 10:59

Afterward I ran another 3.1 miles with my Girls on the Run team for our end of season 5K. I was able to run each of them to the finish line since the girl I ran the race with finished before all of our other girls. That was so much fun to bring each girl in to a strong finish!

I dressed to run outdoors. The weather, however, had a different idea. The windchill dropped the temperature down significantly. It really wasn't bad running the sidtance on the treadmill. I actually enjoyed it.

My foot really hurt during the run and for the remainder of the day. I booted my foot in the afternoon. I'm not sure that my foot will ever be the same again!

Workout:

  • Long run / 16 miles / 11:39
  • My pace was supposed to be 12:33 so I was not too far off.
  • The weather was a balmy 54°. I took advantage of the warmer temperature and did my long run today instead of tomorrow.
