Tonight I spent the evening getting Christmas presents ready, tidying up, washing dishes, washing the sheets, and getting things crossed off my to do list. Nothing glamorous for a Friday night, but I love the feeling of crossing things off my list!!
It was a bone-chilling -5 degrees (that’s “negative five”) this morning on my run!! Grrrr!!! Luckily I only had a 4-mile run planned for the morning.
I know I complain about the cold weather a lot, but it frustrates me when I can’t do something I absolutely love! I know I technically can still go running, but it is really hard to enjoy it to the full extent that I can when the temperatures are more mild and bearable.
Plus during the winter months, I have to put any sort of serious training on hold for 5-6 months and only do maintenance miles. That’s a lot of time I could be training to get faster. I know I will never be an elite runner or win races, but I am a competitive person and want to see what I my potential is!!
Okay, I rest my case.
I’m off to bed now. Sorry there wasn’t much to report. I didn’t sleep very well last night, so it is time to catch up on sleep.
