Training… Is great……….

 

 

I LOVE training in the blistering, breath taking COLD ! … There’s just something about the pain in your lungs that distracts you from all else….

 

Right?? ….

 

As you can tell I might be trying to convince myself a bit.  I can’t remember if I said in a previous post or not that I would stop complaining about Winter Training.  If I did…I’m sorry.  I’m a liar.  Because winter training sucks ASS !! Big bone chilling ASS !

 

I’m doing it though…I have no choice.   I signed up for the April Fools race and I will not show up unprepared.  I ran outside on Tuesday night.  It was in the high 30’s, low 40’s and perfect.  ( as perfect as winter running can be for me. ) Tonight I have to do 5 miles…and it’s going to be in the teens.  Yippee, fuckin Skippee ! Can’t wait !!

 

Tonights commute will consist of loud playing, crazy music to get me pumped.  I need to get into warrior mode ! I have secret motivations in my head that will push me through this. 

 

Mental notes….to prepare for the fun run tonight…

 

                A Latte on the way home ….is “ fuel “ ..I will drink it with no guilt !

 

                On the way home…play songs to pump me up.  Find focus in Battle Mode !

 

                Don’t feel bad about corny “ warrior” & “ battle” references…this is MY world !

 

                Suck it up ..and put on an extra layer of clothes! You are running 5 miles in the cold.  Not climbling some crazy   mountain in 30 below! – You WILL survive.

 

                Nothing feels better than when you are done ! Keep reminding yourself of that feeling!

 

                Final reminder….April is right around the corner!!! NO TIME FOR EXCUSES !!!
