On my way to work this morning, it started snowing (about 4:15 am) Hey.....What The....? You know I love winter and the snow and everything that goes with it, but when its over, its over and I am ready for the new exciting season.
This is Maine though and Winter usually slaps us from behind a couple times in March and April.....so I shouldn't be surprised...and I'm not, I am just disappointed because I don't want to deal with it. I am more ready for spring this year than any one I can remember. Perhaps it is because I didn't really have a fun winter,
or maybe just the "over the top" weather from last week.
Running wise, I am progressing a bit slow but actually the way I should be this time of year. I see all these huge mileage reports from everyone else and feel a bit behind....well alot behind. At the same time, I am not training for a big ultra in a couple weeks either.
On the bright side, all my runs in the last four weeks have been fantastic. Though not a lot of miles, they were very solid and each one left me feeling positive about the up coming season. I am running lighter, stronger and faster than any spring I can remember.
So.....I guess I am whining a bit but that won't change anything. I have a run planned tonight and regardless of snow or cold or whatever, I will be happy to be out there.
Saturday at the Brad.....it was a fantastic 7 miles of fun......felt great all day.
Sunday two hour walk....not really a run but still felt it at the end.
Monday, cross training (bike)
Tuesday, anniversary dinner......no run
