I’m 5-for-5! I was at the gym by 6am again this morning. As much as I claim to be a non-morning person, I’ve really enjoyed it this week. It’s a great way to start my day and squeeze in that extra 30 minutes of activity. I know I can incorporate some morning workouts (and hopefully runs) into my regular routine. Next week’s goal: at least one morning run and at least two other mornings at the gym. Or maybe I’ll just go for 5 again…
Last night was my usual meeting with the training group. We start speed work on Thursdays next week, but yesterday was just a steady run. The conditions were not pretty… -15C/5F (-21C/-6F with the windchill) and wind gusts up to 56kph/35mph. I talked myself in and out of running over and over again and even packed my gym bag to hit the treadmill instead, but knowing I had dozens of buddies waiting for me somehow made it easier to toughen up, bundle up and get it done. And you know what? Once we got out there, it wasn’t bad at all.
I have double long runs coming up this weekend. (Hmm, Goofy Training all over again?) 20KM Run for Haiti tomorrow and a 19KM group long run Sunday. Bring it!
