The way I train, is to have one day that is my long run day. This is the one day a week that I go out and run my longest of the week, and eventually these will be 20 miles or so. For the most part these are on Saturday or Sunday (and I do see a whole blog coming on trying to fit these into an already busy life).
This week I was to run 9 miles. Last week it was 8 and we had a surprise ice storm and I had to drive to another adjacent town to get that one done. Well, I should have run on Saturday this week.
This is the view from the road outside of my house:
Oh, well I had to run so I head out. Hmm, this was a bit hardier than I thought it would be. I felt like I was running in sand. Going to keep going:
Okay, it was pretty ridiculous. I couldn't tell where the road was or the sidewalk, cars were crashing and I was not really feeling my ankles. I decided to just enjoy taking some pictures and have some fun.
I'll fit those 9 miles in sometime this week, or maybe I will have just had three in the snow. What can I say its winter.
