too run down to run

After a long hiatus ... I'm back!

Belated Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

Last week proved to be a really good running week for me.  I was able to run 5 out of the 7 days and hit a little under 16 miles. 

Monday - I alternated between walking for 2 minutes and jogging for 4 minutes for a total of 32 minutes.  Total mileage = 2.82 miles

Tuesday - I alternated between walking for 2 minutes and running for 8 minutes for a total of 32 minutes. 
Total mileage = 3.12 miles

Wednesday - I warmed up with walking for 2 minutes and then ran for 28 minutes, followed by a cool down of walking for 2 minutes.
Total mileage = 3.38 miles

Thursday - I warmed up with the usual 2 minutes walking then ran for 29 minutes, followed by a 1 minute walking cool down.
Total mileage = 3.55 miles

Saturday - Finally no treadmill!  Ran with Ryan around St. Petersburg for 28 minutes.
Total mileage = 3.05 miles

After traveling home yesterday from sunny Florida I was pretty worn out this morning when it was time to head to the gym.  My body was saying "No running today," but my brain was all about those miles.  Then I thought back to the large amount of snow that was covering my car and my lack of tools to fix that problem.  I stayed in bed with Honey and will make up those miles this week.

Thinking of running a half marathon in March ... thoughts?
