Against the Wind

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I ate waaay more than I should have, but can honestly say that I don't regret it. I even managed to get in two miles on Christmas Eve before the hustle and bustle of the holidays pulled Justin and me in several directions.

While Monday was in the 30s, the last two days have been in the 70s. The wind, however, has been ferocious, making our Team run this morning extra challenging. I managed to get in five miles -- the last two miles into the wind -- before it began to lightening and our Coach called us in. I was kind of glad as I don't think my legs could have handled much more! At least the rain held off until I was home, though I know members of another team were still out there battling the elements.

Now that the holidays are over, I have no excuse not to jump back on the training schedule. I was running in the evenings after work, but I'm going to try and train in the mornings now instead. We'll see how long it takes before I hurl my alarm clock against the wall ...

Merry Christmas, Katie. Glad it was a good one. I got in some training as well, but missed the team training yesterday so did those miles on my own Friday.

I usually try to do my individual workouts in the morning. I have not yet hurled the alarm but have been tempted. Good luck. Art

The weather has been crazy. Luckily, the wind wasn't too bad here. Nice job not letting in get to your run.

Good luck with the morning running. I rather run early than later.

Hi Katie! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm definitely with you on the over-eating over the past few days. Ready to get back on track - I think it's weighing me down!
