I normally do my long run for the week on Sat but this weekend we are going out of town to visit family for Christmas and knew I wouldn't be able to get in a long run. I was able to get out this morning for my long run. The weather was 37 degrees, windy and misty rain.
I felt good starting out on the run. I tried to keep a conservitive pace for the first part. Around 8 miles I was heading straight back into the wind which was making me work harder. Around 10 miles my legs started to feel real tired. I am not sure if this was from the increased effort of the wind or the fact that I felt like I was running out of energy and needed some food. Could have been both. Anyway, I kept about the same pace and was glad to get the long run in the books this week.
