Fitting it all in

Is it sick when you are running in 15 degree weather (windchill of ZERO) and find yourself using words like “comfortable” and “nice” to describe the day?  Or is it just that my frame of reference includes several sub-zero days so 15 seems like a heat wave?  Of course it probably helped that I had tights AND running pants on as well as 3 upper layers, gloves and a running hat…  heh… I guess I CAN learn how to dress for the weather after all…

This particular frolic through the new light dusting of snow we had gotten the day before was about 7 miles and was wholly unremarkable.  Easy out, easy back.  No pushing, just mileage.  I’m coming to love workouts like this.  Mostly because there are so few of them nowadays.

My running buddies are all gearing up full tilt now for their spring marathons.  Most of them were running at least 10 miles yesterday and some were going as long as 16.  I got more than one jealous/dirty look when I announced that I was turning around at the 3.5 mile mark.  What they don’t know is that I was secretly jealous of them for running the long miles.  I do miss the long runs though…

No matter.  I’m frying a different fish nowadays.  I’ve got a swim today and tomorrow and then I leave to do some training for a few days.  This is my first challenge to my schedule.  Finding places/ways to exercise on the road is a challenge.  I can’t exactly bring my bike and most hotel pools are WAY too short to swim for anything other than entertainment.  I may be doing a lot of running/stationary biking for the next month or so.  Hope it’s enough!
