I decided to check out the Bristol running group this week. It's hard for me to get motivated to study after driving home from work, so I decided that on the days of the Bristol run group, I would go to the library after work and study til run-time. It worked really well for me this week. On Monday I actually got to study outside in one of the city parks because it was so nice out (a little bit chilly, but just barely warm enough, and possibly the last warm day). Some of the group members were the same ones I see in Abingdon, but there were a few different members as well. It was really nice to run somewhere different for a change! And added bonus, the brewery we meet at has a really awesome firepit to warm up by after the run.
On Friday it snowed pretty much all day, although hardly accumulated, and then it snowed more Saturday. And Saturday night. I never had more than 1/2 inch to brush off my car as most of the snow didn't stick, but it did make the roads slick so I had to be a bit more careful while running!
Today I just wanted the 5 I needed to get to 30 for the week, but I picked a loop I thought was about 6 miles, and it turned out to be 7.6. Oops. I let the boys set the pace for most of the run; it was a struggle to keep up at times, but I decided it was ok to make myself work a bit. Once we hit 6 miles though, my legs were fatiguing, so I decided to slow it down the rest of the way. It's not often that I run 5 days in one week, and I did put in some really good miles this week especially considering how easy the past two weeks were. My next planned day off is Thursday, but I expect tomorrow's run to be short and easy with the Bristol group.
