#Janathon Day 11 – the long(ish) run.

So, I kind of forgot to do my weather picture around the time of my run.  Fortunately, it hasn’t changed in the two hours that have passed!


A balmy 32 degrees (zero Celsius)!  Seriously, compared to what I ran in yesterday, the temperature felt great!  With a snowstorm incoming, I felt that I should get out while I could.

The run started off well.  I kept my pace reasonably slow since it was my weekly “long run.”  I hadn’t decided on distance, just somewhere between 4 and 6.5.  I felt the sluggishness there that my current Whole30 diet is causing, and my legs weren’t up to anything faster than a 9:30 mile.  No worries, the sluggishness should be gone within the next week or so, so I think I can manage.

Anyway, back to the run


I headed down to Crofton Parkway, figuring the loop, depending on the side street I leave from, is a choice between 5 and change, or six and change.  According to daily mile,  I have run 15 miles so far this week, and given how much better 20 miles sounds than 19 – I wanted at least five miles today.

As I hit the two-mile

marker, I knew my diet-tired legs were NOT on board with the 6 miles and change. At the 2.5 marker, I knew that the “and change” portion of the five miles wasn’t my best move.


All things considered, I wasn’t to disappointed in the splits, although the red light in the fourth mile did annoy me a bit, if I am going to be totally honest here.

The run was good, pleased as peaches that I got it done!

Day 11 of Janathon is in the books!


I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
