So there is nothing actually wrong with me at the moment except a thumb injury which doesn't affect running and the fact I am old and don't have a good winter base established. But I do have a half marathon coming up on January 25th. I plan to run as long as the wind chill doesn't fall below 12-15 (above zero). Today was around 40 and partially sunny so I got out for 7.5 miler going north in Lincoln Park. The main problem was left over ice and giant puddles of slush which I avoided all but two times. The problem is that this is my longest run since forever. I plan to do one more longish run of 8.5 or so if the weather holds the next few days. What do you all think about then doing a half with that as my longest training run? I sure I can finish but I think its going to be ugly. Ugly I can take, but not interested in ugly, not fun, and injured as the result.
