Today was the first day of our speed session with my running club. I am happy to say that we only did an easy 4.5 miles instead. The weather was just too crappy to do much more. It was about 3 degrees when the run started at 6:30pm. Mary and I were sure to stay in the middle of the pack this time to make sure we did not get lost..............well, our plan almost worked! We only ran about a half mile off course. We are both directionally challenged I guess. It was dark, cold and an unfamiliar place. Yea, that's it. I was warm enough for the most part. Just my poor hands were cold even before we hit the pavement. By the time I find some mittens warm enough for me it will be spring time. This Saturday we are running 9 miles. It might get up to 20 degrees--heat wave! I hope I don't over dress.
I ate dinner after my run tonight. I was not settled in until almost 9pm( getting kids in bed, shower etc.) and we had spaghetti for dinner. Not my idea of a nice light meal before bedtime. It tasted great but, I am up posting here because I am too full to go to sleep. I found an interesting recipe that I think I would enjoy better ( minus the banana--can't stand them!)
