January has reared it's ugly head!!! You see I am more of a Hawaiian type girl 80ish degrees with a gently breeze all year round and I'm golden!!
Too bad I live in Maryland where one day it's 55 degrees and your in a short sleeve shirt and running shorts (Saturday) and the next it's 19 degrees and you can't find enough layers to even consider being warm (today).
I hate being cold.....plain simple truth
That being said, today's 3 miler didn't suck. To begin with I was already proud of myself that this is week three of 1/2 Marathon training and I have yet to miss a run. In other previous era's of my running life I might get through the first week, never to the second and sometimes never even started at all, totally flaking on race day. Not this time, I am not letting myself quit.
I had a fantastic 5 miles on Saturday as it was the first time I had run that distance since Richmond. 3 miles today were cold to start but defiantly kept me moving! I keep having excellent first and second miles and then kinda dying off in the third or any additional ones after that. I refuse to care about mile splits.....ok well I care but I am trying not to get hung up on them and just keep my feet moving.
2012 is off to a wonderful start, I have many goals, hopes and dreams for myself this year most of which I plan to turn into a reality! In case I haven't told you I have joined Team Tough chik and I am beyond excited about these fabulous ladies!
I will leave my goals for another post, but I would love to hear what some of your goals are and how you have started off your new year!!
