Cold Today- Pushing Past Limits
So first of all I am not great running after work. Also today was one of those days where we hit the balmy high of 28 this morning and it dropped like a rock all day with a strong wind and dropping wind chill. When hubby and I got out to run it was 18 degrees with a wind chill of 1 degree. The head wind on the second half was ridiculous. Really, I live in Atlanta!!!! I really did feel this run. I have asthma so running in this cold is a challenge. Running at a less than optimal time is a challenge. I am happy to say I persevered. I finished and I felt pretty good. I had on a pair of yoga pants over my tights, a long sleeve shirt and a hoodie from the Hot Chocolate Race last year. I wore two pair of gloves and two pair of socks. Of course around mile 2 I could not feel my lips anymore. We did three then headed home for a meatless Monday veggie pasta and some wine.
I think I stretched enough today. Tomorrow early AM run on my treadmill in a tank top and shorts watching the frost through the window. Hubby is sleeping in; school is called due to cold. Sometimes you can push past your comfort zone.
Today I am grateful to head back to work and get back in the swing of things.
