What a great day! Sidewalks have no snow and I can run there instead of the streets. With the goal of 9 miles today, another first for me for distance, I did all those stretches needed before the run. Now being in a new location to start from, I mapped out where I needed to go on Google Earth. Because of the longer distance, I was told by my marathoner friend at work that I should start drinking Gatorade used in the Fifth/Third Run so that my body would get use to it and not reject it if taken first time at race time. With stretches done, dressed for 20* more than the current temp, water, and Pineapple GU, an energy boost. Everything seemed to work as planned and my air was just fine but it takes a bit of mind control to keep my legs moving. After completing the run, I worked on preventing sore muscles from getting too stiff and took a nap. By the way, I left out the waffles. Never eat them 1/2 hour before your run.
128.99 miles of training since December 1.
