I know that soon all of the runs in the middle of Siberia will pay off when I step across that finish line in my first race! It is hard though running here, it can be very lonely. I long for the days when I can run around Memorial or Rice in Houston and gain inspiration from seeing all the people running around me! Until then I need to continue to be consistent and train smart, knowing that someday all my hard work will be worth it! I finished my run with a cool down and then 20 mins of Pilates, core work and some yoga stretching. Then I took the plunge!! I took a COLD ice bath! I knew it was the right thing to do but man was that hard! I am now curled up in my soft, warm pj's trying to get my legs to de-thaw!!
30 min run with one walking interval (bc of hurt knee) and a 4 min cool down, followed by 20 min of core work and Pilates.
