This Polar Vortex is the pits. Yes, I know. It’s Michigan- blah,blah blah. Seriously though…enough already, we get it. It’s frickin’ cold. It’s colder than cold. Noted. Stop it. It’s making my friends ( not me, just them) really bitchy too. I just had a conversation about this today with a
bitchy good friend of mine. She is reading this. I think she might laugh…..
I don’t think she’s a B. It’s the weather making
us her behave in such a way though. I might have agreed that I have been a bit crabbier myself. 😉
I heard that February won’t be much better either. 😦 So I have that to look forward to. Awesome. Ok, enough of that. The last time I wrote I was super motivated to run! Yea! Nope. Am I allowed to blame it on the weather?? I’ll do what I want and blame it on mostly the weather. I still have not run outside since the marathon. What in the world? And I call myself a runner?!?! The treadmill has been my BFF this year. I keep meaning to run outside, but then I just can’t bring myself to do it. I am lucky if I get 18 miles in a week. (P.S.- I got in 18.5 last week, with 12 of them on Saturday…) And that’s about 18.5 more miles than I got in the previous week– ooops! So that is my confession. I’m not running enough. I have given a good effort this week. Only Monday’s plan to run fell through ( Polar Vortex: see above). School was cancelled so I had to sacrifice running and
turn the TV on care for my kids. They were just as bummed about this as I was. This brings me to Tuesday. I was TOTALLY ready for my treadmill run. The kids were out of school – AGAIN, but I decided to drag them to the gym anyway. That’s right. I’m the boss. Good thing I never made it out of my driveway. ( Polar Vortex: see above). I got stuck. Like, stuck stuck. I was eventually unstuck ( thanks, Matt) I won’t mention that he got stuck trying to get me unstuck either. By then my motivation to run was gone. I was hungry. Kids were hungry and the Fit Zone at the YMCA did not reopen until 4pm. Damn you polar vortex ( notice I did not capitalize it this time? I’m super mad at it.)
Wednesday (today), I taught 2 classes. Cardio Sculpt at 6am ( Tabata intervals- they were hard and made me
bitchy happy) and Spin at 10am ( endurance + intervals). There was no need to run today because I did too much enough as it is. I ran today! It was a good one too. It was only 5 miles, but it was a quality 5 mile interval run. Today was apparently Interval Wednesday. I’ll take it. Thursday was to be either a planned rest day or a 6 mile easy run day. Tuesday became my unplanned off day, so I need to figure out something for Thursday. Number one: Don’t get stuck in the driveway. Number one (tie): Amara and Miles have school. Number two: Don’t let your friends act like bitches.
I hope everyone had a great January. Man, time is FLYING!!!!
Today’s song choice is Killing in the Name – By: Rage Against the Machine. This song made my marathon playlist 3 times. Sometimes you just need some (more) anger to get ya through those miles. I guess I should have played it 2 more times, huh? 🙂 I played it twice today during my intervals. I hope I wasn’t singing too loudly or I might lose my job. Lots of F bombs dropped today. Yesterday too. FUN! Boom.
