Legs were dragging after Saturday, but I persevered.</p> Mon, 20 Jan 2020 07:00:00 Sat, Jan 18, 2020 http://russ.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-18-2020.html <p>Really hard run. Waited until 11 as it was too cold. Wore my North Face thin hoodie over my gray winter shirt and it was too warm at 2.5 miles so I stopped and took it off plus my mittens. Put&nbsp;the mittens back on at mile 9 as I was into the wind and the hands were cold. I haven&#39;t run this far for ages - not sure the last time I went 13. It was too far for my fitness. I&#39;m training for the Bighorn 50K, and my Hal Higdon&nbsp;app has an insane training plan for the race. I&#39;ll soon revise the plan downward.&nbsp;<br /> AP 9:19</p> Sat, 18 Jan 2020 07:00:00 Fri, Jan 17, 2020 http://russ.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-17-2020.html <p>6 miles at 23 degrees, but I thought it would be colder so I was overdressed. Stopped at 2 miles and took off jacket and extra gloves. Tough to get started, wanted to quit 1/4 mile in, wasn&#39;t feeling it, but I carried on and it got better. Legs must be a bit tired from TM running.</p> <p>AP 9:29</p> Fri, 17 Jan 2020 07:00:00
