Just as I had predicted, this week has been a bit of a bust- there’s one more day in the training week and to date I have just 2 treadmill runs in, one cross training session (i hour of shoveling snow) and tomorrow it looks like another treadmill- and it is set to be a doozy- 6 miles- inside… oh boy. But really, lets be honest here- I went out walking in this winter wonder-mess today and really, honestly, who’s running outside?! I admit that I should have went for it earlier in the week because now it’s hardly walk-able, never mind run-able.
I alternate between feeling panicy that the 1/ 2 is coming up very soon and then patting myself on the back for doing as much as I have this week because, besides the weather, and it being Xmas, I also had 2 kids come down with the flu on Xmas day (it was a bit of a puke fest- but lo and behold everyone, and I’m talking MY side of the family, were still waiting very impatiently for their turkey dinner while I tried handing off a very feverish and snot smeared baby to the ol’man who tried his best to help out- God bless him)
There ain’t nothin’ like the holidays- Ho. Ho. Ho.
One thought on “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”
Sorry to hear about all the puking. :o( A has been sick too, but more of the cold and sleeping a lot type, no puking.
I did see one person running yesterday. Besides me that is. I was due for a 6 yesterday and after going knee-deep into an ice-water puddle I could only bring myself to do 3 before calling it quits. Everyone looking at me like I’m a retard doesn’t help either… you’ve got to love the honesty here on the East side! So, yesterday I was feeling pretty envious of your treadmill. And I skipped Christmas Day altogether, which was supposed to be a 3 mile day. So, yes, I think we’re all slacking off here on the slushy west coast!
The first run of my actual 18 week schedule happens tomorrow. I sure hope some of those icy puddles have drained by then…..
May the force be with you!
