16 Miles @ 16 Degrees

Cold Day in Hell

Just over 16 miles today.  Jason and I braved the cold air.  Thank God the wind was only 3 mph out of the NW.  I had a water bottle of accelerade (peach), pack of green sport beans, and  cliff bar.  I wanted to make sure I didn’t bonk on my longest run on the coldest day of the year.  It was a progressive run, so the last 4 miles we increase our pace with the last mile at marathon pace (8:00).   I felt  pretty spent, but will try to recover on the bike tomorrow.
