I woke up at 2 AM and was unable to fall back asleep. I had hoped that the run would help me feel better. The entire run felt strained. I almost fell off the treadmill at mile 3 because my footing was so awkward and off. I hung in there. Tomorrow is a new day!

Workout: Long Run (18 miles)

I was forced to run on the treadmill due to a snowstorm over night. I marked my mileage on my phone since I could only run around 6 miles before the treadmill stopped. Somewhere during my boredom, I lost track of my mileage. I ran an extra 4 miles!

In retrospect, I am glad for the added miles. I've been concerned that my weekly mileage is too low for my upcoming race.
