January 15th: Woke up at 7:30am. Rolled around in bed before finally making some breakfast (another instant packet of apples and cinnamon oatmeal). Checked the weather for Albany and it was going to be in the single digits with a RealFeel (Accuweather term) in the negatives. Suited up with shorts, calf sleeves, half tights, full tights. The top half consisted of a sleeveless shirt, t-shirt, long sleeve, pullover, Brooks LSD Lite Jacket II Nightlife (Courtesy of Erin, Dominic and Katie). Doubled up on the hats with a skullcap and a winter hat. Out the door at 8:30am to drive down to Albany for 12-15 miles with Tom O'Grady.
1:45:35 later, we battled the elements to finish our 15 miles. At about 8 miles, Goupil and I believed that we were going about 11-12 miles ended up being conned into the extra mileage. Paid off, immediately jumped into the car to treat ourselves to some hot chocolate. Fail! The hot chocolate machine wasn't working. So we took the best course of action by punching the cashier directly in the face and running out (kidding!). Back to Clifton Park for some Belgian waffles with bananas and strawberries. Yum! Relaxed the rest of the day with some Giants football @ 4:30pm. Ca-Chang!
75 miles for the week. Solid start towards the 2nd marathon training.
