2 Run 1, Week 2 (BTHR): Christmas Day Run
Today's run started at 12 noon. Was supposed to run a fast 30 minutes today, according to the BTHR running schedule. Ran 4 laps in 33:40. (Or approximately an 11:22 minute mile.) Which, while not quite what I was hoping to achieve today, was still pretty good, considering I was fighting waves of nausea throughout the run & still managed to keep going through it all.
Only had a 1 min warm-up walk today due to time constraints. (Am meeting friends at 1 pm to drive into the city for a holiday movie & dinner. Was my own fault for not moving faster when I got up this morning so as to run earlier in the day, but oh well, makes no difference thinking about that now.)
Temperature was a relatively warm 41 degrees - I wore two layers on top (long sleeve running top & fleece parka) & one layer on the bottom (running pants). Felt really warm after 2 laps, so took off fleece parka, light liner gloves, & neck warmer, & just ran in long sleeve running top & running pants.
As usual, popped 1 Ibuprofen before the run. My left knee was a tad sore by lap 3, but it didn't hurt too much, just throbbed slightly.
OK, got to dash into the shower now; I barely have any time to get ready for today's get-together!
