We get four seasons. We GET winter. It snows. It is cold. We do get lots of sunshine. We do get 50 degree days.
Just not every day.
I HATE running on the treadmill. Really, I don't like running. Well, I mean I do, but I don't. We have a love/hate relationship. Only I never really get to the "love" stage - more to the "I like you, like you" stage.
So, I'm training for something I said I didn't want to do again until 2016. And it's winter. And I have less than 90 days to get ready.
But, I'm doing it. I'm training for a marathon. I put together my training schedule:
|31-Mar||13||Rest||3 mile||2 mile||20 minutes||STROLL THROUGH PARIS||31.2|
This is just my guide. I should have made it equal 414.2 miles, but I don't really want to run those extra 13 miles. It would have had to be an extra 14 miles - then the numbers wouldn't have been even. I'm not really even going to run 401.2 miles as I'm already behind.
I'm kinda on track. I ran 6 miles today. Only 2 yesterday, but I also went to yoga. Today I had to wear a hat and gloves and walk around ice on the trail.
Good things: It's not too hot
I don't have to get up and run at 4:30 in the morning to avoid the heat.
I'm not near as dehydrated.
The mountains look incredible with the snow on top of them.
And when I run in Paris, in April, I can leave all these winter clothes at the start line.......
