The Long Run That Wasn’t

18 Nov

Last night I was all prepared to do my long run this morning. I had my warm winter clothes set out and my garmin charged and ready. The plan was to run to work and since I work at 6 am that led to a veryy early wake up call.

And then I stepped outside. It was freezing and windy. Did I really want to run outside today? Nahhh

So no long run happened outside. I am hoping to get 6 treadmill miles in later and then do a short run outside tomorrow to bring the weekly total to 16.

It is becoming harder and harder to motivate myself to do longer runs outside because I am not currently training for anything. Does it really matter if I run a long run this week? Not at all.

However I did sign up for a 5k Turkey Trot on Thanskgiving morning. I don’t have any high expectations for it besides just have fun and try to enjoy racing again.

So what’s a girl to do when she fails at her workout? Naturally start Friday off with a billion calories of Dunkin Donuts.

I have been craving a pumpkin donut since September and never got one.. today was the day. And it was so worth it.

Happy Friday!
