Can Boston really only be a week away? It is close enough I can look up the extended forecast.
Apr 21 Monday -Mix of sun and clouds. Highs in the mid 50s and lows in the mid 40s.
Now if only that was indeed the actual weather Monday, I think I will be very happy! I need to try out the skirt of my new Southeast Running Club outfit before then!
All and all, things all seem to be coming together on the running front which I am stoked about.
I am forcing myself to suck it up and mentally toughen up and stay on my paces when my body desperately wants to walk.

Thursday 4/10 - 9 Mile "Track" workout - I went ahead and did the w/o on VR site after a 3.75 mile warm-up which included running to a local track with E and realizing the kids were on it, so we went back to the treadmills to git-er-done.
