Run 11/22/08

While I was running, I had it all figured out in my head what I was going to blog about. I was planning to catch you all up. But now I'm just not in the mood. Maybe later. I'm too busy trying to warm up. Yeah, I ran in 32°F weather. I know that sounds like a heat wave to you folks in those big, chunky states (Yes, I'm referring to the midwest). And I'm sure I'll be wishing for this type of weather once January comes around. But for right now, it's too damn cold. Can we fast forward to spring?

So I finally got my butt out to the park. It's sad because I was off all last week, and not the least bit motivated to run or bike anywhere. The colder and darker it gets, the more I wanna stay in bed. And now that I'm back to work, I'm less motivated. I leave at 5pm, but it looks like it's 9pm. I get home around 5:30pm ready for bed. Then I have to remind myself that it's not even 6 yet. A couple times this week, I came home from work and just dozed off. I did happen to get my period today, so maybe PMS was a factor as well. In any case, I completely understand why bears hibernate. I may join them.

Well, I'm feeling less crappy. So I think I will start catching up with all of you. I know, I've been bad. I haven't even opened Google Reader in about a month or so. But I will. I promise. Anyway, I'm off to finish my Ghiradelli cocoa and bundle up. Have a great weekend!

Glad you're feeling better. I am totally with you on the hibernation.

It's been damn cold out there!

Good job getting out there in the cold! Brrrrr!

Oh, no, 32 degrees feels cold in the chunky states, too! But you're right—in February 32 will feel downright tropical!

Cold plus wind plus dark makes it really challenging to get out there. But looks like once you got out you have a great pace. Hot cocoa once I get back is definitely one way I motivate myself to run!
