Running Chick in Snow, Training
Comment (1) | Trackbacks (0)
I think Mother Nature is getting a good laugh at us poor Yoopers right about now. She gave us a gorgeous 70-degree day on Friday and then turned around and dumped over 10” of snow (some areas got around 15-20" - check out Josh's place) on us in the span of 2 days.
My yard, which was snow free on Sunday, looked like this on Tuesday morning.
I did get a giggle out of these little tracks on my parking lot.
Here’s hoping that this little weather blip is our last of the season.
I was able to run on Monday (2.5 miles @ 10:19), although with the mix of snow & rain, I got pretty drenched. I ended up cutting my run short because it was getting pretty nasty and I didn’t fell like getting run over due to poor visibility.
I also ran six lovely pain-free miles today (@ 10:32). I didn’t intend to run the entire six, but my shins were feeling fine, I was feeling fine, the sun was shining, the birds were chirping and the roads were bare. Usually at this point in my training, I’m so beat up and tired that I find myself questioning my sanity every time I lace up my shoes. Today I was reminded why I run in the first place. It was perfect.
Now, I just hope my body doesn’t pull a Mother Nature and unleash some sort of injury avalanche on me. Speaking of not funny…
