It’s that time of the month…
Where I live, we’re in the middle of a polar vortex so it’s HOT coffee in the morning before work and red wine in front of the fireplace at night.
1. Over coffee/wine…
I’d tell you that I actually for the first time ever maybe, I did ALL my long runs!!! (And the temps got colder with each one!) Do I hear the applause?
Thanks to my running friends…. I feel prepared to run 13.1 miles on February 10.
Do you have to have company to run your long runs or are you able to do them solo?
I’d tell you that I can’t wait to skip town. My last hotel stay (for work) was Dec 20 and my last vacation stay was Paris in October.
We haven’t had a really bad winter (until recently) but still I am looking forward to feeling the sand beneath my toes.
I am not weather stalking (well, maybe a little). It may not be warm but I know that it will be warmer than it is in NY.
Anyone else have a warm weather race-cation planned?
I’d tell you that after this coming half marathon on Feb. 10, I have another TWO halfs (NYC, Helderberg to Hudson), a 15k (Hot Chocolate Brooklyn) , a third half (Great Sacandaga), a 15k (Adirondack Lakes) this spring and then a fourth half marathon (Surftown RI). That will keep me from obsessing about my first FULL marathon….
I promise not to count down and panic until after September 8 (when I start my 13+ mile long runs…)
Do you have a lot of big races on your schedule? Or do you train for one at a time?
I’d tell you that that I’ve already looked into half marathons for next winter (and I haven’t even run this year’s yet.)
Are you a planner or do you sign up for your races at the last minute?
I’d tell you that I’ve become a Nike Zoom Vomero hoarder. Even when I need new ones, I have a hard time giving up the old ones. I rotate them and keep the older ones for shorter runs and races. The problem is that I don’t keep track of the number of miles on the shoes. I seem to need new ones frequently (my feet and lower back tell me when) and especially when running a half marathon.
I’m on the verge of buying a black version of the new 14s. Please stop me!
Anyone else have too many pairs of the same shoe?
It’s also Friday so I’m also linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.
Happy Running! Got anything to spill? Share it here! What are you drinking to stay warm?
