so frustrated!!!

Dear blog, I’m so frustrated.

I really, seriously, wanted to run outdoors this morning. I wanted to do a long run- six or seven miles, maybe? I had really good and honest intentions.

But this morning, I woke up, cuddled underneath my warm blanket, and I thought… running… mehhhh…

Thus I hit the snooze button, overslept through my normal running time, spent many hours being mad at myself for missing my run, and finally I decided to go to the gym this afternoon for my usual (short) treadmill run. (Haven’t left yet- I will probably go to the gym after I finish this post.)

I want to run. I want to run a lot. If I do a half marathon in a few months, I NEED to run a lot so I can figure out a few more details- namely fuel and hydration. But winter is just… winter! Who wants to run outside or, for that matter, leave the warm comfort of bed?

My overall mileage has dropped significantly- from 25-30 miles per week back when I was training for my 10k in November to a mere 5-10. Plus I’m not really training on hills, which is what I need to be doing.

Ok. I’m done whining now. I’m gonna go change my clothes and run. Wish me luck!!
