It'll be a challenge to run 90 miles this month, much less 100. My goal for the year being to run 1200 miles, I would have to average 100 per month. It's less than two months into the year and that already seems unlikely. Lately it's been a struggle motivating myself to go for a run. I run early in the morning so it's always pretty cold, even on days the temperatures end up being in the 40s; today, e.g., is supposed to get up to 43 degrees at some point, but at 4:00 a.m. it was 11 degrees, and that's not factoring in the wind chill. But it's not even the cold, because in many ways I prefer running in the cold to running in heat or humidity. Or at least I used to. When I do run, I find that the cold plays upon my mind more than it should; of late, my 6+ mile runs are at a pace that is usually closer to ten minutes than to nine. I haven't run at a sub-nine pace, or anywhere near it, in I don't know how long; I can't find the spark.
I wore light colored clothes to work today.
