So today was a challenging run. I had originally planned on running 4 miles (I am getting a little too "stuck" on the 2.5 miles) but when I got on that treadmill it was like I had no energy at all! I was able to pull out my usual 2.5 but it was rough- it almost felt like it was my first run ever (well, not quite that bad :-)). I think that since I am starting work this week and am having to get up earlier I am just a lot more tired. Monday was a great run and even though it was just 2.5 I felt really good - and that was after a three day "break". I'm not too worried about it though, it really did feel like very low energy rather than sore, tired legs or incapable lungs. I am planning on doing some intervals tomorrow so I am hoping that puts a little spring in my step, I better get a good nights sleep :-)!
So, as much as I love living in Alaska I can sometimes get very frustrated with it. The last few weeks have been gorgeous and sunny- not too warm but warm enough to have things melting nice and slow. I was loving it! Then low and behold we get a little snow storm on Monday night and now it is cold and snowy (and it feels like winter!) and, to be honest, it really sucks! I am reading about everyone getting nice warm weather and I get this...bummer for me :( !! Ok, enough of the sobbing over something that happens every single April...
Happy Hump Day to all and to all a good night :-)!
