So on Friday, I was able to run along Cedar Lane and complete a nice loop of 82 minutes and 14 miles maybe 15. I felt really good and the pace was nice and relaxed but strong. Getting some hills in was nice too and I really need to keep the pressure on my training to ensure that I am up there with my mileage before I prepare for long endurance trail races and the OKC marathon. I love the winter time and being able to wear tights and high socks and everything associated with it is awesome! I love cool and adverse weather that is not on the hot end of the spectrum. I used my 80 gift card at Backwoods which may be a potential sponsor and bought a sweet Arc Teryx Top that with a can food drive saved me 100 bucks! Sweet Sweet Sweet deal!
Anyway time to run in the cold wind and rain!----Run out towards Norman North High school. The weather was insane!!!! Oklahoma is by far the windiest place in the World! 50 mph gusts and sustained 25-35mph winds are you kidding me. I ran in the neighborhoods to dodge some of the wind and rain but there was no dodging it! I was buffeted around like a pig in a blanket squealing all the way home. It was tough but 75 minutes later and I was a changed man with 11.65 miles in the books not bad!
Sunday---70 minute run to the Bank at night!!!! Nice pace as the temps dropped significantly from 40 to 28 degrees! So tights and gloves were a must. I got lost in one of the neighborhoods out by Norman High School but kept a nice pace!
