After work Hiro and I went to the nOg Run. It was the first of the year, so I just couldn't miss it. In addition, I want to try to push myself more this year. I know that I can work harder and get more focused in regards to my workouts, so I was eager to go the run as the back end of my two a day. It wasn't too bad of a day weather wise. We were able to climb into the 40's, which was pretty much a requirement to get Hiroko to run outside . . . She HATES being cold, so if it gets below 40, I'll most likely be runnin' solo. However, this day, we ran together, which I was happy about because my legs were feeling heavy after the morning class. I ran a full minute off my pace from my last nOg run, but it felt much worse. The mile was really rough and my hands were freezing because I had lent my gloves to Hiro. After I sloshed through the first mile I was able to get into a bit of a groove and finish in an acceptable fashion. I want to do more of these two a days on Monday's in order to push myself a bit more, but we will see how it works out in the future.
