Today is a bummer. I set out this morning on my 23k run (only four more long runs to go!). I was a little worried because it was quite a winter stirring last night. However, I bundled up and got myself prepared for the cold. My friend was meeting me on the second loop and she bailed out this morning because of the wind! So off I went down the road. At 1km I realized it was much colder than I thought. At around 2km, the wind was blowing and when it got strong (which was a lot) it would blow wind and snow on my face...it felt like little tiny daggers on my cheeks! At 3km, I turned around and ran home.
So there you go. What started as 23km ended up being 6km which I may have run in record time. Winter really blows.
Tomorrow I am going to a local indoor track to run 6 million laps around and get my 23km for my long run. It is not ideal but better than a treadmill for 2.5 hours. Next week it is back up over 30k again so let's start hoping for some sun!
Instead, my husband, kids and I are heading out to pick up our tree from a local farm. The children are extremely excited and I am also anxious to get out the decorations and lights. Some family for dinner tonight and back to work again tomorrow!
