14 Miler – January Has Been a Beast

I ran 14 miles on saturday,  we having a serious freeze going on.   It was 15 degrees out when I stared my run,  I wore my KSO’s with the Nu-wool Injinji socks,  this combination is great so far.  The run went really well, I am trying to run my long runs at a slower pace, but always start off to fast, and my pace really takes a significant dip towards the end, I want to be more consistent.

January has been a beast!   I think we have had about 4 snow storms this month alone, the temps have been freezing to the bone, and sickness has been getting the best of me.  My four year old  came down with a stomach bug which just ripped through the rest of the family like the movie “outbreak”.    My weekly mileage has definitely not been up to marathon training standards.   This week I only got in 27 miles, but whatever,  between work, family, and now school starts this week,  I do what I can.   I have two more senior semesters to go, looking at graduation in May, it’s been quite a journey.

  1. January has been downright evil this year. The wool Injinjis have been my savior, except for that time I went out already having cold feet. That kind of idiocy no wool sock can fix.

My sweetie is proud of her snowman she made, or I should say Sammy as the name she gave him. Family skate day. My mom at a young 70 lacing up the skates! My favorite girl.
#mysweetie So intense. Power and strength to the max. Who says dinosaurs don’t exist. Sunday morning 3 mile barefoot run. Blowing the dust off the skins. I like to incorporate deadlifts with my back workout. This was my last set of 240lbs for 6 reps. Seeking that 300lb mark down the road.

215 x 8

It’s starting to warmup in the garage, 25 degrees this morning. “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” MLK 🔥
