6 miler complete !

I’ve been having a lot of oats in a mug this past week, like this guy: oats, banana, and pecans !

I had some friends come into town from Boston on Thursday, and my Thursday run did not happen 😦 I am not very good at standing up for my me-time (yet ?). Anyhow, Friday was ‘rest’, and we got snow ! I was very excited to see it again, after fearing that VA was never going to provide me with white winters 😉 It was also an opportunity for me to try out some new running gear. Everything is now flashy colors. Blue shoes, bright green shorts, orange long sleeve… Only my leggings are semi-low profile 😀

So, this morning I got back onto the training plan, with some oats in a jar and a glass of milk:Image

Then, after taking some much needed time to digest 😉 I headed out for my 6 miles ! There was still snow on the ground, so it was a little tricky, but after the first mile or so, I got used to it and fell into a good rhythm:

6 miles in 57’51”

I saw a good number of people on the trail, almost all of them walking their dogs ! I went further than I had been before, and instead of circling the dog park, went ‘straight’ for 6 miles, along a little creek/canal.

I came back to an awesome iced green tea 🙂 and am off for some rock climbing !
