1. I feel like my workouts are not exciting enough to blog about lately. Next weekend I have a race - yay! I have two races in February I'm already registered for. The second one is partly on the beach. Should I plan on my time being (even) slower than usual due to the sand or if it is hard enough is there no big difference? I have never raced on the beach and am looking forward to it in spite of the fact that it is in New England in February.
2. Speaking of New England in the winter, this morning at my house it got down to -22 degrees. Wow! I had no intention of running outside as I never do these days before work but if I had I think I might have just gotten myself to the gym. I thought maybe school would be delayed - busses might not start, they wouldn't want the kids waiting at the bus stop but nope. It started at 8:00 as usual and even though lots of kids in the school are absent I only had one kid out. My kitties are no fools and this morning found two of them in one of their favorite spots near the woodstove.
3. And speaking of school my school year has really calmed down for various reasons I can't go into but my day is much easier. Huge relief. But I'm still thrilled tomorrow is Friday and the weekend is almost here!
I am an "older" runner who didn't start running until I was 50. I got hooked on running and racing very quickly. It's been awhile since I ran a marathon but I do several halves a year. The big news is that this is the year of the triathlon!
