Recap: Week 10

This week wasn't such a notable week as far as running goes. I did manage to complete two 30 minute runs this week...but neither of them were particularly worth mentioning - since I was a little under the weather all week. That, coupled with the BONE-CHILLING cold that is sweeping the northeast right now, has made running a bit of a challenge.

I'm hoping to re-run week 10 again this week (4 days of 30 minute runs). I'm currently running at an average pace around 10:20, which is pretty good for me. Hopefully, I haven't lost TOO much ground this week.

I'm starting to get nervous, since the 1/2 marathon is only about 11 weeks away! But then again, I got myself from zero running to where I am today in about 10 weeks, so I guess it's still realistic to think that I can run the 1/2 marathon in 10 weeks from now.

I've seen more people than I would imagine running OUTDOORS in the temperatures that we've been experiencing. I find it difficult to just BE outdoors in this weather, much less go running. Maybe I'll be doing that at some point in the future - but not terribly likely. For now, I'm happy enough being able to get to the gym 4 days a week, and run on a treadmill. I'll try running outdoors again some time in March or so.
