I knew you would arrive eventually! Wow, it went from 60 degrees to freezing so quickly. The forecast is for a wintery mix today. I was slightly disappointed when I woke up and saw that there was no snow on the ground. I was really hoping to work for home today!
I will officially be running on the treadmill during the week and outside on the weekends. Since it is dark when I get home and cold, I cannot make myself get outside. Running in the cold when it is light out does not seem as bad. I am sure I will still sneak in a few weekly runs outside every now and then. As long as the wind is not blowing a Kansas wind, it is not too terrible every now and then.
Last night I went to the gym and ran on the treadmill. The funny thing is, I hopped on my treadmill in the basement and hopped right off. I was so not feeling it and knew I needed to get to the gym to get a quality run in. And what a quality run I had! I warmed up for three miles and then ran two faster miles and then ran two miles to cool down. My first fast mile was completed in 8:40 and my second was in 8:25. I am really going to try to focus on speed this month and then in January, I am going to start training for the St. Louis Marathon! My friend Laura and I ran the half marathon last year and this year we are both going to run the full! I am so excited!
Trying and stay warm everyone! That includes you too Tina! I cannot believe how cold it was in Houston last week! And snow, oh my!
