Happy Earth Day!
We have been having some really crummy weather lately. I don’t want to run in the rain, unless it is for a race. So I have been sticking to the treadmill.
But that is getting boring. It is fine on the short runs, but I really can’t stand looking at the elliptical machines for an hour or longer. Plus I have been having a harder time wanting to run at night. I have a ton of stuff to get done, and really the only time is at night after the boys go to bed.
So last night I had a great idea. I would take the boys to the sitter on Tues & Thurs early, go for a run and then go to work.
And this morning the clouds parted and the sun was shinning so I did a quick two-mile run outside! We have some great trails around where I live, so I stopped on the way home.
It was beautiful, and just cold enough to cool me down but not freeze me.
I am not really falling behind in my training, but I am not advancing either. I am hoping this new schedule will allow me to get more runs as well as doing at least one long run a week.
And each week that run will get longer and longer….
