Update on… nothing really.
I am still running about 40 miles a week. 45 if I go by Daily Mile’s week of Mon-Sunday. I haven’t run outside since the middle of last week. We got hit by a mad cold arctic front. I had a few runs in it before I finally threw in the towel. Wearing fingerless gloves while running is never a good idea. I tried to shove my finger tips down but my thumbs were still nearly frostbitten.
So my long treadmill run on Sunday was 8.5 miles in the a.m. and another 2 in the afternoon. Yesterday I just did a quick 2.5 before bed. I really needed to sleep in that morning and I slept until 7:15. Glorious. Last night I stayed up too late reading and then Red woke up and wanted to party at 3:30. We were up for about an hour. This has happened a lot lately. I am not sure what was going on with her, but she has had a persistent cough. I took her to the Dr for it 2 weeks ago and it still hasn’t gone away, so she is going back tomorrow. It makes me sad to hear her coughing so much.
So I wanted to sleep in again this morning but I sucked it up and ran 7. I watched Super Fun Night, which is really disappointing. I thought that british chick was supposed to be funny? I got bored and had to put on my iPod for extra distraction.
I am hoping it warms up later this week so I can get outside. By warms up, I mean like around 20 degrees. With not much windchill. I am not optimistic, so I decided to plan on doing 5 miles on the mill every day. That seems doable, and some days I can push myself to do more. I will plan for another longer run next week.
I made the cutest xmas card ever with Red. She is wearing a pink bunny suit (the pink nightmare) and sitting next to our leg lamp. then she put my glasses on and gave me a cheesy grin. I love it. I hope people have seen A Christmas Story so they get it. Otherwise, they will be like WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? Surely everyone has seen it by now.
