A boring running update

Monday night I ran to my group run 1.4 miles down the street, with the group for a 3.1 mile run, and then 1.4 miles back home…close to 6 miles on a Monday night, which is double what I usually do for a recovery run and you know it worked out well.  My legs felt fresh, the rain and cold didn’t bother me too much, and I was almost able to keep up with my usual pace group – almost.  I wasn’t feeling speedy, but I was feeling light and energized.  When I walked in the door wearing my white running rain jacket and my reflector vest, my husband said I looked like an astronaut… it’s like: shit, I’ve been running around in public for the past hour and Now it turns out that I look like an astronaut… great!  I’ll remember that outfit, but pretty much all my running gear looks a little off, I always mix and match the worst possible combinations.

Tuesday, I made a major mistake.  I thought it was going to be bad weather so I went to the gym to and hit the treadmill while forgetting my headphones and iPod at home.  Right now, running on the treadmill is a little piece of hell, I do not suggest it especially without any distractions like bad tv.  I lasted about 20 minutes and then did some stretching, PT exercises, and practically exploded right out of there.  My tolerance for annoying things is super low right now… when I got home a button fell off my cropped trenchcoat: icing on the cake.  It was a really nice button…

Luckily, today is a an off day and I’m trying to remember how to get out there and be social on weekdays.  It’s horrible weather in Boston today but that’s not going to stop me from having French onion soup and getting a manicure, both of which are guilty little pleasures.  I hope everyone in the northeast finds a fun way to stay out of the rain… only a couple more days till Chicago, where I hear it will not be raining over the weekend:  www.noaa.gov
