Day 38 - Rainy Day Run

Today's scheduled run: 6 miles

Today's completed run: 6.13 miles
Pace: 8:33 (avg)

Today was my first official day of break. I took advantage of it by sleeping in until 8:30 (party animal, I know!), chatting with a friend, and not leaving for my run until 11. I threw in a few episodes of 30 Rock, too. Approximately 3 minutes into my run, it started raining, and it rained on-and-off for the whole six miles. Still, it was warm out, and not too bad. I wore shorts again; I love this shorts in December thing. Initially, I thought my legs felt tired. Now, though, looking at my pace, I realize that it must have been my brain that was tired. I was pretty bored this run, and it made it feel really long. Don't ever let anyone tell you running isn't a mental exercise.

In other exciting news, I opened a Christmas present tonight. You may remember my mention of a very large, heavy present that my dad left under my tree. Tonight, upon returning from dinner with him, I opened it. Voila! A fabulous Christmas present - a Kitchen Aid mixer. I am so excited about it! Last year, they got me a bread machine, which I love and use all the time. I'm looking forward to making some wonderful delicacies on this baby. I think I'll name her. Any suggestions?

If you need me, I'll be baking.
