The running bug is back
Monday, January 04, 2010
I had a decent run today on the treadmill...yay the treadmill, not my first choice of running but it is winter and I am in Michigan. The roads are just too icy in my sub....as I hit the curb twice today (in the car)...duh! going too fast in my turn, and going to fast coming down to the end of the street...too fast as being 10-15 mph. No warm up in sight to help melt this ice...salt trucks you ask? ya right....seems to be a salt shortage here in Gd. Blanc. My Yak tracks and my winter running gear is looking sad and lonely as it wants to be used **sigh** My running gear is just hanging there over my the rocking chair waiting and wanting to be used. It's been a long while since I have had this longing feeling for running. I haven't been outside running since...ohhhh, never mind...to long ago and lets just say it would of been easily shorts weather. I do actually perfer winter running, not sure on that one cause I HATE and I mean HATE-DESPISE winter HATE the cold, HATE the snow, HATE the ice, did I mention that I HATE the cold??? What I LOVE about the winter running, I'm the only one out there running, it's just me and myself. I can hear every hit of the road, every breath I take, the scraping sound as the Yak Track as they hit pavement instead of the snow/ice. Even the birds are snuggled down deep inside their nest....sigh...I do need a slight warm up though. I will not be stupid like I was in the past and go and run on this icy stuff...pulled muslces are not fun and being side-lined again would not be good for my mental state....but this running bug is back!
