Double down...

I have plans to run tonight with a friend.

Then I woke up this morning at 5:40.
I laid in bed thinking how I was tired and wanted to sleep more...
while simultaneously thinking:
"If I get up now and get ready, I'll have 45 minutes to get a run in"
which also went along well with the VERY rational
"I have to take a shower anyway".

So I got up and ran 5 miles.
Yeah- this was what the weather said when I got back:

yep- it DID feel like 11 degrees.
I layered up nice and good, but BRRR.

Still, it was good.
It wasn't super sunny at 6am, no matter what those weather people say.

The sun hadn't quite cleared the mountains yet.
It was nice and clear, though...
Except for the arctic, sting my face wind.
Luckily my face was numb after the first mile.

Planning on going for a run tonight, too.
I don't think I've ever done 2 runs in a day.
My first double!
Look at me, pretending to be someone who SHOULD be doing that.
Sometimes I like to pretend.

Wednesday Workout:
5 miles (in the AM)
8:15 pace

This evening:
6 more miles- hopefully!

I totally do the showering thing too.

Two runs in one day? You're hardcore! Great pace too!

Nice job getting in a very cold morning run. More importantly - two in one day? Wow!

While it's great that everyone is congratulating you, I think you are crazy. And if you are running again does this mean that I am not going to see you at the shower because honestly I kind of need some sanity there. And that being said I say bring the girls to play.

Nice job getting in a double! You had to shower anyway, I love that rational!
