Getting My Groove Back

I'm slowly working my way out of my funk. It's an uphill battle, as I'm sitting here watching the weather forecast for buckets and buckets of snow. I am so over winter. My husband on the other hand? Yeah, he's out ice fishing. Winter is apparently his mistress, and ice fishing is his dirty whore.

Anyhow, the running . . . yesterday, Sophie and I headed down to the cities to hang out with my mom and niece. Mid-afternoon I headed out for a four mile run on some trails near my mom's house. It was sunny and warm, and I had a great run. Today after work I got in some speed work. The track was finally snow free (until tomorrow, supposedly) and the high schoolers were running sprints on the grass in front of the school. So I had the track all to myself. I did some 800's, which felt great. I'm planning on an easy run tomorrow morning. Now if the weather will just cooperate . . .

I hoe the weahterman is wrong about the snow! Great job staying in the game. I am sure once the warmer weather hits you'll be ready to go.

I agree, I am done with this snow!

I think when you change your running routes, it helps to break the monotony that we inevitably fall into over time.

I am glad to hear that your getting back into your groove!

More snow? Yuck!! I am so very ready for spring weather and flip-flops. Hope you don't get to much snow!

Ugh, as if winter isn't bad enough, to have to actually watch your husband enjoy it... ;)

Oy! I'm so glad we are finally past the snow time of year. I think I'd lose my mind if it wasn't getting warmer around here.

You poor thing! It's nasty and raining here but at least there's no snow! Wish spring would just push it's way through!
