NOLA W9/KW3 20.01 Miles; 3:20:35 (9:59 pace)
This was the hardest run I’ve ever, ever done. The wind was in my face the entire time. The hills were, well, hills. You guys coming to Nashville in April are in for a treat! I felt like I was running backwards and uphill for 3 hours. Next time the news says, “Wind gusts of up to 40mph” I’ll do more than shrug it off.
Other than the elements out of my control, it was great. The weather was perfect-started out at 30 degrees and rose to 50, sunny and gorgeous. I had no pain AT ALL! I think taking a week off really helped work out some kinks and I felt great after I got warmed up.
Brenna and I got to run together virtually, and proceeded to send videos via text to each other. It was like mental candy. She totally killed her long run!
A cutback week in on tap for next weekend with 12 miles, and I get to run a 5k! It’s been over a year since I’ve done a smaller race, so I’m pretty excited for that.
