An easy run today, one lap at Liberty with Carol. Since she has a 5K race tomorrow, we took it easy. I was grateful for that because as minimal as it sounds, my 20 mile week was a huge increase over last week's total of 5 miles, so I was a bit tired. My miles for the month of January did surpass my miles in December, so I accomplished something at least. We ran the whole park on the wood chip path which has been antagonizing us for the last few runs. It wasn't nearly as hard as it sometimes is, but I'm pretty sure that is because it's frozen (crunch, crunch, crunch) and unmoving. When spring and summer come it will be as loose as ever which will add the added difficulty that we both need (and dislike). 4.5 miles at 11:44mpm - definitely easier and slower than we have been running. I hope that Carol has the energy to really kick some butt in her age group tomorrow morning!
