Today is National Running Day so of course I had to run! I was going to just run on the treadmill because of the nasty windy icy cold weather. But I went for a drive to see if I could find the bears that people have been seeing around here. (One more reason to run indoors) But I never did see any. I decided to drive down the road a bit, all the way to the little pond we named Caren Pond. I parked there and bundled up against the wind and ran 3 miles initially. But when I reached the goal of 3 miles I decided to keep on going until I reached 5 miles. I like to run at least 5 miles every day. I really need to get in a long run of at least 10 miles, but the weather is so obnoxious, I keep putting it off. Perhaps tomorrow. I may have to do it on the treadmill. I am kind of alternating between the treadmill and the outdoors. I can push myself more on the treadmill by raising the speed. Out on the road I find it difficult to judge if I am pushing harder or not. Both forms of running are very beneficial.
