The first Ethanol Loop
I did it! My first official 6 mile run today. J and I ran the Ethanol Loop, came back past the school to the T-intersection and back to her house. It was a good run, a foggy run, but a good run. We looked like old ladies when we were done because there was so much frost on our hair and clothes. It was a brisk 18 degrees when we started and about 22 when we finished. Perfect.
Rounding the corner to come back into town, there was a headwind. We were both surprised as there was no wind (less than 2mph)
Overall it was a good run. It was work at times, but it felt good afterward. Having someone else there kept me going. I layered clothes and was still a bit cool, but sweaty at the same time. I had to shed my skin and bring on the ducks, but I made it. The chill only allowed the skin to fall off through my knees, it wouldn't let go below that. It was like a hard shell that wouldn't crack. I could make it a little softer, but it never completely shed. I had to keep envisioning my finishline and my family.
6 mile run; 1/2 mile walk; accomplishment!; RPE - 4.5
