Outside-In

This morning I started out running around my apartment complex with the Garmin Forerunner attached to my wrist. I was in good shape, clothing wise, but my hands, sans gloves, were FREEZING! I ran outdoors for 10 minutes before calling it a day--for outside running, anyway! I did go .82 miles for a 12:13 m/m pace, getting better on the outdoors thing. Of course, running less than a mile, I can hardly boast. :-P

I drove across the street to the gym and got on the treadmill for 30 minutes, running an additional 3.23 miles, a 10:50 m/m pace. That's 4.05 miles for the day, and 19.5 miles for the running week (which starts on Monday for me).

I feel like I need to start heading toward a 5-mile run if I plan to be ready for the Inside Out 10K in late March.

I came across your blog looking for some races near Raleigh. You have inspired me to do better.

My brother is training to do a half marathon in April and has also inspired me to train for it although I have never ran more than 4 miles in one run...

Thanks again!!
