Week 7 hump

I’m finally over the week 7 hump.  It only took me three weeks to finish it.

1st attempt:  Monday, 1/27.  Ran 4.5 miles on the treadmill

no running the next week.

2nd attempt: Monday 2/10.  Ran 4.5 miles on the treadmill.  Wed. 2/12 ran 4.5 miles on the treadmill.  I planned on running 2/14, but just didn’t.  In-laws were here, we were heading out of town for the weekend.

3rd attempt:  Wed 2/19.  I ran 4.5 miles OUTSIDE!!  If I thought I could have, I’d have ran 7 miles.  I didn’t, mostly because I hadn’t ran for a week.  My feet were soaked from the slush, but it was otherwise good to finally run outside.  Fri 2/21.  I ran 7 miles OUTSIDE!  I really debated this one.  The sun was shining, but it was windy.  24-35 mph windy.  I still did it.  Some of the times while I was heading into the wind, I was actually walking when I should have been running.  The wind was that gusty.  I couldn’t run.  I could barely walk.

Off I go to start week 8.  Hopefully it won’t take 3 weeks.  The sun is shining, but it’s pretty darn cold, so off on the treadmill I go.
