The past week was a bit rough, with some really low temps, and I wasn't exactly the happiest person during all of my runs. I am getting sick of running on snow (and it just started), and I let it ruin part of both of my long runs this weekend.
Running on some more snowy trails
50K training officially started this past week, and I am trying not to think about the fact that we still have at least two months left of winter.
I guess it is a good thing that I swim, bike and run as much as I do, because if I didn't I would hibernate until April or May. While staying inside, drinking hot chocolate or coffee and watching movies sounds like a good time, I think I would get sick of it after awhile.
So, I bundle up and head outside (or to the indoor track if I really need to). Even if they aren't always the most enjoyable runs, an unpleasant run is better than no run. And the endorphin rush helps me feel a little less "blah" than I did before.
But don't get me wrong, I am counting down the days until I don't need to wear 2-3 layers of clothes just to go run!
