Happy Spring (?)!
It sure doesn’t feel like the first day of spring when our temps are single digits in the morning with double digit BELOW zero windchills. Ugggg. I have been super crabby the past few days and I have NO doubt that it is, in part, due to this sucky weather. It’s funny, I can tolerate this type of weather in December and January and even February because it’s expected. But when this crap happens at the end of March – in SPRING – I am not happy. It makes me angry, actually.
So today after days of treadmill and/or skipping my run, I said NO MORE to Mother Nature. Cold or not, I’m running. Outside. I can’t handle the treadmill. And my body can’t handle not running – it makes me crabby and flabby when I don’t run. So today I laced up the shoes and ran 8 miles with 4 x 800m at about 10k pace OUTSIDE, with temp of 15 and a windchill of 2 degrees. But it felt fabulous. It instantly lifted my spirits. It made everything else that seems to be falling apart feel a tiny bit less sucky.
