This morning I met Lynn and Kelly for our long run. We ran 17 miles! My longest distance to date! It was 29 degrees with light snowfall, and it warmed up to 30 by the end of the run. The wind was brutal at times. I thought my fingers were going to freeze off! I did have on gloves, but they are made of some sort of breathable material, and they were letting in too much air! We ran a little bit slower than we normally do, and my knee didn't bother me too much. I think resting for 2 days prior to this run, plus icing and exercising must have helped. I am a little bit bothered that I did not get all of my planned miles this week (4 short since I skipped Thursday's run to rest my knee), but I am just going to accept it. Next week we have 39 total miles planned with an 18 mile long run.
I am really too tired now to attack any cleaning projects today, but I hope to clean out the kitchen and laundry room freezers tomorrow afternoon.
