Cold + Rain = Me No Run Outside


Whoa! I'm so proud of myself!
I can't believe that I'm posting for the second consecutive day.
It's even during the holidays!
I admit that I haven't been the best at posting
for the past 3 months, and it can mostly
be attributed to my inability to being as physically active
and/or running.
To quote Gaston's (Belle's other love interest) sidekick, I've been a little "down in the dumps."

I had a late night last night, and I was pretty tired when I woke up at 7 a.m. this morning.
However, I was still excited about the 5 miles I ran yesterday, and I didn't want to run a full 5 miles on Saturday.
So... I put on my running shoes and ran.
I decided to run only 2 miles today because 5 miles was a lot for me.
I hadn't run that much in one run since before my 10K back in August.
The second I started running it started pouring.
I think the weather knows when I'm going out for a run.
I can guarantee that it will be
cold
windy
cloudy
or will rain.
What's up with that?
It's like the cosmos are telling me not to run.
Anyway, against my doctor's advice, I went to our clubhouse and ran my 2 miles on the dreadmill.
I... was... so... bored.
I've been spoiled.
I've been running outside where the mountains are dusted with a little snow,
and don't let me forget about the occasional drivers that I sometimes have
to dodge because they're not paying attention to me and my bright red windbreaker running at them.
I really hope I didn't mess myself up again.
So far so good though.
Just the normal soreness.
I loved it when it rained on me in the summer just after a run.
Now that it's in the 40's, I'm not so much a fan of the wet stuff.
I might have to cave in and join the gym.
A few of the gyms here have indoor tracks, and I loved trying it out last summer.
That would mean that I could run in the afternoons or at night.

Do you have a gym membership?

No gym membership for me I live to far out it the country. I do have a treadmill though and a driveway that is 1100 feet long so it makes for a good walk. It looks really cold where you are... Brrrrrrr
