Finally a Few Warm Days


Tuesday, February 12, 2013

The past couple of days it has been -5 and it has been such a nice break. It was ridiculously cold for the past month and it's so nice to run outside again! I am still doing my short runs twice a week on the treadmill at lunch because it is just a lot easier to fit it in that way, but it is really nice to be able to take the pup out for the long runs. I am up to 4 mile long runs, and about 10 miles a week. Definitely getting there!

My dad and I signed up for the half marathon in May a while back, and now Tommy (my husband) and my brother signed up this week. Super exciting! I am training super hard partially because I know Tommy is training not at all or really half assed. haha. I know that him being a former athlete emoticon , it really doesn't take much time and he gets super quick again, but has never run further than 10km. I am really hoping that the distance slows him down a bit and I can stay ahead of him! haha.

Also very much in my favor that I am in the first wave, starting 30 minutes before he does haha. If he does beat me I will be ok with that too, I am already exceeding my expectations for myself which is a nice enough gift!

A quick 2 miler at lunch then I can dive into the delicious spinach salad I brought....

    We just got home tonight, and I'm thankful for the warmer temps too. Lots of snow here though, so I'm going to try an outdoor run in the morning and see how it goes. I hope you stay ahead of all of them, but you'll be proud enough just to finish.

You go, girl!
