1. What?!?!?! It's Thursday? Seriously. I get the kids back into school and the days just magically fly by. It sure takes a lot to get a house back in some kind of order post-holiday. I have all these things I want to write about but to sit down and do it has not been easy this week! Maybe once I get the last of my Christmas stuff put away today the normalcy will return. Fingers crossed.
2. Just over a week out before race day. Craziness I tell ya. You're going to fall over once I tell you this, so prepare yourself... but since my last race mid-December, I've only ran ONE day each week. Longest run has been 10 miles this last Monday, one week it was 4, one week it was 6. I know. I'm going minimalist this cycle. It wasn't planned that way, but here I am one week out. Just for fun I might try to kick out 18 miles on Saturday. It's all good, right? Riiiigggghhhht? (I need a little reassurance...)
3. It's cold here. Like mostly teen degrees, afternoon high of 22. I can't handle cold running. I'm feeling a little wimpish. And there's no sign of it getting any better. So that 18 miles I was just talking about will be on the treadmill. Hopefully there will be a good movie on at the gym... maybe I'll slip the girl a little somethin to put in one of my top picks... :)
Do you run in the cold, no matter what?
Longest treadmill escapade?
