It seems like everybody was hit with the 'Polar Vortex', or what people in Minnesota call 'A Tuesday in January', but basically it was a rough time. Yesterday I went for a 6 mile run, the temps were 30 degrees (huge improvement) and there was about 4 inches of snow on the ground. And then today we had temps at 65 degrees for my 12 miler. No complaints here, it's just weird. Looking forward to February I'm very optimistic, but know I have my work cut out for me with about 2 months to go until St. Louis.
And to be honest today was a pretty rough 12 miler, and I'm not going to beat myself up in the least, rather move forward. I didn't prepare for this in advance. I didn't eat for about 24 hours from Friday night until Saturday evening. Plus I stayed out a wee bit late/early getting in at 5am and up again at 9am. So yeah, I own this and I'll more forward. But getting out was pretty awesome for a change.
