Yes yes yes
I did it!!! the dreaded mid week so call medium long run!!! cold I say cold, cold, cold. I was chilled to the bone or to the finger tips. I thought they were going to fall off after I got back in the house and they started thawing.
The run started with my Garmin dying at about 2.5 miles not because of batteries. I'd changed them before I left. I believe it was just too cold. When I went out this morning it was 3F. When I returned it was 9F according to the sign that displayed near my house.
I did an out and back. I've use this route many times for a long, run. So when the Garmin died. Based on previous times and how I was running this morning. I ran out for 1 hour 20 mins. And you will not believe me when I say I forgot to put on my reflective vest!!! did not discover until this point!!! When I got back I felt I had too much still there. So I added the mile loop around my block. I just wanted to be sure.
I went to the track tonight, don't ask me why? crazy I guess and of course it was still cold now about 26F with winds. I started slowly around the track. I started to feel pretty good. Then I began to worry, maybe I did not do 14 miles + this morning so trotted it out for about 4.5 miles. I'm pretty sure I could have done more. I went back and check my Garmin history just to compare my previous times. I can positively say that I did all my required miles today.
