364 days ago I was sitting on the couch looking outside, making up excuses to don't go and exercise.
A day like today, with heavy snow, ice roads and a knee not at 100% would be more than bonus excuses....
BUT NOT ANYMORE.
Today I decided to stick to the "prescribed WOD" 13.1 miles.
Is the first time in my life that I can say I run 13.1miles NON STOP!!!!
Even with today's weather which for moments left my to think I'm a little crazy (just a little :).
I started near Unionville, CT at the parking lot and decided to run along the route 4 towards Collinsvile, by the side of Farmington River.
I ran from there to Canton (route 179 & 44). And back to the parking lot.
First 7 miles where OK, with some leg discomfort but very good overall, then after that started to snow heavy and the road was really ice on the side.
I rich the parking lot but my watch indicates that I have to ran for another 1.7 miles so I loop around a couple of times until I finished.
I felt with no power in my legs and tired. Last 3 miles I jog at 5.6mph, really slow.
Total time is not something I proud of, but is my first record of 13.1 miles. A lot room for improvement and need to train harder my legs.
2:20 minutes. Now at least I know what can expect (at least on distance, at race day).
Trip back home was slow to beacuse of 3 accidents on routes 202 and 118. Cars with no AWD or 4WD should stay at home.
After a good warm shower I'm feeling my legs again. Next WOD 100 push ups for time.
