7 miles / 60 minutes
This morning I woke up a little earlier than I did last Saturday and got going on my run. It is amazing what a difference a week makes. The weather was so much better today. I think it was 66 when I started out. I also wore my hydration belt today and took two shot blocks before I left. Minor adjustments sometimes make major improvements.
I did the same route that I did last week and it felt so much better today. Sirius enjoyed it more too. We stopped every so often so that I could squirt some water in his mouth and get a drink or two for myself then we would trudge along. Bonus: UVM had snow again today so we stopped there and Sirius played for a while.
It is amazing how much Sirius loves the snow and how he can see if from far away and know exactly what it is.
Our time was 7 miles in 60 minutes on the dot! It felt great. Today was the kind of run that I am reminded for the full hour of why I love to run and how much enjoyment I get out of running. The earlier miles were tough, my legs felt heavy, but I still enjoyed it and am reminded as to why I run and how much better life seems after a great sweat session.
