5 in the SNOW--love it.

Well as you may know, I have diagnosed myself with runner's ischemic colitis--so my runs lately have been hard--I increased my weekly mileage too soon and I am paying the price.  I took yesterday off from running and cross trained (strength training at the Y) but that was not enough rest time. 

Today I wanted to run 5 (and part of me thought I could add the extra mileage from the other day that I did not do--wed was going to run 5-6 and only made it 3)---well that did not work.  N, R, and L meet met this morning and we headed off--right after kids got on the bus.

I really felt like I was holding them back.  I was breathing hard and really struggling--this should not have been so difficult for me.  It was nice running in the snow--light dusting kind--the cold snow flakes felt great on my hot face.

My watch did not work--garmin claimed low battery even though I had charged it--took Con's watch--here are our splits:
Avg Pace
100:10:17 1.00 10:17
200:10:37 1.00 10:37
300:10:34 1.00 10:34
400:10:41 1.00 10:41
500:10:11 1.00 10:11
