Icky, cold, wet weather

I went for a long run today.  I think it was about 6 miles but I haven't been plotting my runs lately.  I've mostly been running just to run, with my five year old running watch as my only gadget.  I've been trying to focus on how I feel and get in touch with my body because I've been experiencing a period of low motivation with my running despite the obvious pace improvements. So, I'm trying to get back to the basics of just running for the sheer joy of it.  It was a bit difficult to be joyful on today's run though, due to it being 54 degrees Fahrenheit and rainy.

Tomorrow I have my strength training class and I'm actually pretty excited about it.  It's much different than I expected it to be and since you have to bring your own weights, it can be geared towards each person's individual fitness levels.  I've already packed up my eight and ten-pounders for tomorrow. :)

The Pats won last night with a great turnout in the second half, but I am beat today from staying up to watch it, so I think it's off to bed with this squirrel
