12.24.2005: 14 miles

Distance: 14 miles
Time: 2:23
Location: Rose Bowl
Notes: Silly me for thinking that the 14 miler would be easier than my 12 miler. I was slightly slower than my usual pace, but if it wasn't for the fact that I was running with Coach Katie, I probably would have been a great deal slower. The weather was a factor. It was the hottest day of the winter, and by 10:30, the temperature had climbed to about 80. This week is a step-back week, so I should take it easy. I won't, though. I'll try to do six miles on Tuesday, hill training on Wednesday, and another 5 miles on Thursday. I think we're doing 8 miles on Saturday, so that should be piece of cake.

Oh man...80 degrees? Wanna trade?

I did my 20 in a -10 wind chill (actual temp was teetering between single and double digits). It was FREEZING. But after a while your body starts to numb and it doesn't hurt as bad...which I guess is a good thing.

What event are you training for? I'm off the Phoenix in 2 weeks...then start training for the Chicago marathon after a short break.
