This is from my hillier route.
Today I ran inside because it was -16 and I am not that hard core. It still hasn't warmed up much and I am huddled by the woodstove.
I am trying to run new routes or at least not run in a long time routes and I am really enjoying it. My route at home is much hillier now but I definitely needed to change it up some. I am actually kind of liking the treadmill too. I seem to like it better when I am on a training plan. I certainly push myself harder. Come on knee, play along.
One of my New Year's Resolutions is to go to the movies more. Isn't that a smart one? Today we went and saw American Sniper. Part way through there was a fire alarm. And did I already say it is freezing out? We were probably out there about 15 minutes - much harder when you're standing still. The good news was we got back in and finished it. I didn't want to come back another time and watch the first two hours again. Many people left.
School is going great. I love my class this year. The two grades I work with are full of such good kids. What a difference it makes in your attitude going to work. We're studying the rain forest which is fun and very motivating to them.
This is from when I was leaving school the other night.
I have not one but three trips planned. One is my usual trip to Maine in February. One is a weekend in NYC to run the half. We already have show tickets for Saturday night. Not the best for the night before but I'm not going to be walking away with any of the prize money. The third one is for a biking trip over April vacation with the same friends from last year. We'll be biking from Pensacola to New Orleans. The sister of one of my friends is going to be the sag wagon!
Hope all of you are healthy. The flu is nasty stuff around here!
