Since it is Thursday, I’m linking up today with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud Thursday.
Here’s what I’m thinking today…
I was away for 6 days and I did not go on a computer. Not even once. Not even tempted.
- No reading blogs.
- No commenting on blogs.
- No blog postings (I scheduled them all before I left.)
- No replying to emails.
I did minimally post to FB and IG with my phone so that my friends would not think I dropped off the face of the earth.
Sorry fellow bloggers, I ignored you all. But it felt great.
I’m back now … and trying to catch up.
I was so lucky to be spared the ugly winter weather typical for the NE. I was able to get all my long runs in for my recent half marathon.
It would have been nice to schedule a break.
This half marathon is in 5 weeks!!!
It means that I don’t have a break from double digit long runs. 10, 11, 12, 8, and then 13.1
VCM is the next one I registered for.
But I’m also even considering one for April 24 – 6 weeks after Celebrate Life. Yes, I have lost my mind!!
I just got back from Florida.
There was none of this:
It was cold…40’s in the am and 50’s in the pm with awful cold winds off the water.
But I shouldn’t have been complaining.
This is what I saw yesterday.
The low predicted for Sunday is -6 degrees and windy! And yes, I have to run 10 miles in that plus find a clear place to do it.
I am an awful sleeper. I have a hard time falling asleep and if I do, I have a hard time staying asleep.
Unfortunately, I recently discovered that my FitBit tracks my sleep patterns. (I had hid it originally.)
I average some weeks getting 4 hours a night. Some nights I get 3. I rarely get more than 5 hours. UGH!!
Aren’t you supposed to get 8 hours???
Happy Running! How are you surviving running in the winter? Do you get enough sleep? What are you thinking about this Thursday?
