Waiting for Spring… Saturday, the weekend… No Running or training… Long run tomorrow, marathon training.. Treadmill rest day
I am at the office for my last make up shift prior to vacation. As you can see I am working hard…
I work at a hospital, in the cancer center, and it is quite “spooky” being the only body on the entire 5th floor. The atmosphere in a hospital is bad enough on a regular day, being here when it is virtually vacant, is a whole different can of worms. It’s dark, mind numbing quiet and if it wasn’t for the hospital HVAC system, it would be enough to drive a person temporarily insane! I am thankful for all the little noises…
I was psyched yesterday for a run outside but literally exhausted and unmotivated by the time my shift ended. I made the mistake of checking the weather prior to changing into my running clothes and thinking it was cold, I opted for the treadmill. What do you think happened when I stepped outside? It was a beautiful afternoon! Perfect conditions for a run and I was off marching to the gym. I contemplated changing a second time back into my outdoor gear, but in the end, just slugged it out on the treadmill. It was only a 6 mile easy run and I didn’t want to extend doing it longer then I had to.
As of today spring officially begins in 15 days, the clocks spring ahead in 8 days and I leave for Veradaro Cuba in 13 days!
No running on the agenda today but a long run tomorrow. If the weatherman is correct, and we achieve the 10 degrees Celsius they are forecasting, it should make for excellent running conditions.
Any big plans for the weekend?
