Saturday long run on Sunday

With the rain on Friday nite causing ice on Saturday morning I opted to run on Sunday. So around 11:30 I made it to Lake of the Woods for a run. An out and back one mile run in 20 minutes to make it back to the parking lot by noon. I was supposed to meet up with some of the TNT members but none showed. Alums, Randy and Jaymie did.

So the three of us were off running the 5 mile trail out there. It is a nice and somewhat hilly course (about 950 feet of ascent). We ran slowly and I found out what my conversational pace is - about 12min/mile. We walked a little as well.

7 miles in 1:22:35. Not bad, but not good. But it was supposed to be an easy run and for the most part I think it was.

The really nice thing in looking at the calendar is that I have mileage for the last 4 weeks. Something I couldn't say before. I am starting to run more often. Something I have wanted to do but always found a way not to do. It make me happy. It make me tired but as I get in shape I believe the tiredness will lessen.

On a separate note, one of my goats gave to birth to a healthy female kid late Friday afternoon. See is really cute. I'll post a picture or two tomorrow. Mom and baby (Lightning seems to be the unofficial name) are doing fine.
