I kept the kids downstairs for most of the morning so he could sleep. I was quite productive. I took the guest bed out of the playroom and moved all of their toys in there. My living room is now a toy-free zone!! It looks so much better and I'm pretty proud of myself.
Once Roy woke up, I decided to get my run in. 4 miles at half-marathon pace was on the agenda. I was eager to see if I could do it after feeling like death yesterday. Well....
I did it!
4 miles - 34:46
Mile 1 - 9:03
Mile 2 - 8:32
Mile 3 - 8:23
Mile 4 - 8:33
Average pace - 8:38 min/mile
I was coughing pretty bad afterwards but I expected that. I think the cold air opened up my lungs and I did push myself a bit towards the end. The crisp air was very refreshing especially after being stuck inside.
On a different note....
For 2013, I am participating in 13 in 2013. I plan to run 13 races in 2013. I chose the variety button because I have already registered for a bunch of different race distances. Due to the fact that races can get expensive, I plan to run a few virtual races. I think this will be a great way to keep myself accountable and on track.
Do you participate in virtual races? Are you doing the 13 in 2013?
