Hanging with Summer, break from running, cold air coming!
Summer and I did some exploring last week. Dawn was getting together with a friend for dinner, so Summer and I explored Tuttle Mall and she was loving the decorations already up.
We went to a wedding Friday night and it was a very cute wedding with great themes from Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter. Fun times.
I also geared up for a long weekend run. My legs were still not full healed from the Columbus Marathon, so it was just a solo run on the trails.
I was hoping to get in 26 miles, but my legs were really killing me by 13 miles and I eventually pulled the plug just before 17 miles. I figured it was smarter to just pull the plug and avoid getting injured. HOWEVER, I did cross over the 1,000 mile mark for the year. That was my new year's resolution, so I finally did it. And the only reason I got there is from running smart. I battled a couple injuries the past year and properly resting is critical to getting back up there at full capacity. Taking 2 weeks off with NO running at all.
I did go out Sunday morning to watch some friends and family running the Hot Chocolate 15k. Fun times in the rain.
Monday I talked at the ODOT Winter Prep meeting. Honored for them to ask me to give the winter outlook. Lots of great questions as well.
Keep the jacket handy, but trade the umbrella for the sunglasses for the next few days! Finally getting some high pressure to bring sun for the rest of the week. Chilly mornings then cool afternoons for today and Thursday with more sun than clouds. More clouds Thursday night as a cold front sweeps through, but with little moisture to work with, not expecting much rain or snow with this, just colder temps. Cold blast of air Friday with temps staying in the 20s and 30s all day. Temps dip into the lower 20s by Saturday morning as clouds slowly start returning for Central Ohio. Partly cloudy, dry & cool Saturday, however rain likely Sunday. Have a good one!
