I have been SO frustrated with the weather this past week!  The past few days it's been pretty slushly/icy outside, and I haven't been brave enough to venture out for a run.

On Monday I went to run on the treadmill at the rec center, and I just couldn't do it.  Serious FAIL after only like 10 minutes on the treadmill.  Today Mathis encouraged me to run on the track at the rec.  I was skeptical, but it was great!  There was no way I was going to keep track of how many loops/miles I did, so I just decided to run for time.  I ran for 45 minutes hoping that was close to 4 miles (my training goal for today).  The track wasn't too crowded, but I did have to do some weaving and passing.

It felt soooooooooo good to be running again today.  I used to dread running, and it's still a challenge for me, but today I was so happy to be running the track!!!  When you can't run, you realize how much you really want to run.

Unfortunately the weather forecast doesn't look good.  We're expecting lots more snow this weekend.  I'm a little nervous because I know I won't get to train like I had planned, but thankfully I can now run on the track.

And today I signed up for a 6-week yoga class starting in March!!

Time: 45 minutes
