Waking up today, the weather was one great surprise! It was the first time I've actually seen the sun in over a week. Yesterday, we had temperatures around 30-40 degrees. Today, it felt like I accidentally moved to Florida over night; we had temps near 70!
I made it out to run with just my four S's: Shorts, socks, shoes, and sunglasses. In December. In Kentucky. Without freezing my tail off. Did I mention its December?
I think everybody who saw me running today was taken back for a moment, because they were all bundled up out of habit; just like me this morning.
Everything about the weather made me want to get out on my treadmill bike:
Quirky inventions aside, this was the quickest run I've had in months. I knew, secretly, I needed to hold back. And I tried. Oh, how I tried. But it didn't work, not this time. Not in this weather. Not when I'm feeling this good. I just spaced out and ran, just to run.
I ended up running a shade over 3 miles, and loved every step of it. Here's the splits, you can yell at me if you like:
Time to get more studying done so I can make it to the pool tonight!
