I really don’t have a heck of a lot to tell you all today! It felt weird not to do a Friday post though, so I had to type a quick little something up!
As you read this–I have hopefully already done a run on my treadmill prior to going into work…Fridays are typically the day I take off because Saturdays are my long run days! This week, since I’m in taper mode, it’s way less mileage than usual. Due to feeling a bit under the weather, I haven’t run much this week….only 2 days-and only 13 miles. Ick. I’m going to get up BEFORE work on Friday and finally do the workout I’ve been putting off since Wednesday.. No excuses! (yes, feel free to call me out on it!) My coach has me doing some mile repeats and MAN that makes me miss my track even more than usual! Mile repeats are way more fun on the track!
I feel more like I’m “going through the motions” with running right now. (RE: all of you who opt to NOT do a spring marathon and NOT train during winter…you are winning!)I’m SO SO excited for my marathon next weekend…but I’m also SO SO over running indoors. It. Is. Killing. Me. I cannot remember my last outdoor run. My Garmin is so sad! I swear I hear it’s little garmin-y beeps beeping out a morse code 1-4-3 in my sleep (who remembers what that means, beeper people!!) telling me it needs me to wear it! I hope I can get outside Saturday before it starts to blizzard…again…
I know I should feel grateful for the gifts I’ve been blessed with and take advantage of all I have developed.. but this is what I’m actually thinking right now: “Bla bla bla bla bla”. I can’t help the overwhelming urge I have to punch Mother Nature in her face. (were you perhaps just thinking this would be a post where I wouldn’t complain about the weather? Oh, you….you’re silly. Of course I’m going to complain about the weather…just grin and bear it from now until March 21, Please and Thank You.) I’m SO Over snow & the bone chilling temps that are accompanying it! (man I’m being dramatic & whiny right now, I know!) It seems to snow EVERY DAY.
The meme below has kind of been my theme of the week…flying monkeys almost came out a few times…
Ok. So now I leave you with my funny faced expressions and complaints. Hopefully you still like me after all of the belly aching I have done lately! Now it’s Your turn…. please tell me your winter motivations because goodness knows I have complained enough about my lack of it over here. Give Me your survival skills!
and also..who remembers what 1-4-3 meant on a beeper?!
