Much better!

Ok, so I went out and did my 8 miles. It was TOUGH! It was as if I hit EVERY hill and I was running INTO the wind the whole time. At one point I was running my 1/2 mile at a 9:15 pace (fast for me) and I turned the corner and the last .25 was all up hill and the wind was blowing SOOO hard. I wanted to quit and walk so bad, but I didn't I pushed hard and finished strong.

So, even though I've hit some sort of wall, I'm glad I got out and did my 8 miles. Tomorrow will be good. I've got to do it early. There's no time to do it later in the day.

Things are good. My food was pretty good today. I wasn't too hungry and I did good staying away from sweets for the most part. :)

Wind is my least favorite! Good job on 8 miles!

So what is "Run for Red 5K + 4 miles"?

Hope your four miles went well today. Just finished with three miles and hoping for 8 miles tomorrow.

Happy running!
