May The Force Be [Against] You

So really quick I just had to share a funny story.  Last Thursday it was beautiful!  So beautiful in fact, that I had to take advantage of the 67* weather with an outdoor run [read: I do not run inside].  I'm all excited...It's 10am, on a weekday, sunny, and I'm able to sneak in a run...that's heaven right there!  I lace up my shoes...put a collar on Murdock...crank the music...and we head out.  About .5 seconds into our run I notice it's really windy.  The first mile of my run is a slight uphill include, but I mentally reasoned with myself my saying it will push me that much harder on the last 2 miles of my run.  Twenty minutes ten minutes later I turn and start my 2nd mile, that's when I realize the wind turned and was against me again, it wasn't right on this time, but still it was against me.  The last 2/3 of my run winds around and I'm not making this up...over 3/4 the time the wind was pushing against me.  It was like someone was playing a cruel joke on me!  Looking back it's pretty funny...it wasn't so funny was I was charging against it! :)  

Since it was so windy I ended up doing run/walk/jog intervals.  I did 3 miles total [1/2 jogging, 1/4 running, 1/4 walking].  I can't wait until it warms up again so I can get another outdoor run in.  I just refuse it go with snow on the ground!  Wednesday is supposed to be good, so cross your fingers it's not windy! :)
