Three Day Weekend

This weekend was a blur. I need a vacation from my three day weekend.

I saw lots of friends over the weekend (went to bed too late) and got a good ten mile run in.

I ran Saturday morning  in Central Park- it was 16 degrees. My pace was about 9 minutes, so I’m hoping I can get that down to the 8:20’s on race day. I would really like to beat my previous half marathon time – 1:49:38…. That was an 8:22 pace…

I’m hoping it’s warmer next weekend for the Manhattan Half, but you never know with this weather in New York. During my run my hands were FREEZING. – yes, I know 16 degrees… they should be freezing… BUT the gloves I was wearing are by Mizuno and they should be really good! I think I paid around $30 for them! So hopefully I can find some before the race. Anyone have any recommendations??

That’s all for now. Not sure what I’m going to do tonight. Maybe the elliptical…

    Probably some Northface gloves would be good.

    Ha, ha! I went running in 16 degree weather too. (only 5 miles) My hands were FREEZING! I went out later that day and bought Under Armour ColdGear gloves. I’m going to pick up handwarmers too. When I got home I sat next to the radiator with my hands on top of it. My husband came down the stairs and said “Didn’t you go running at the gym?” When I responded “No, I did the loop around town” he replied “Are you crazy?” Yes, I most likely am…
