The meat of this post has nothing to do with running, swimming, or the gym for that matter. Even though I am sick and tired of getting shafted on my 30 minute runs. When I start increasing the length of my weekday runs, I might have to either go at the butt-crack of dawn (5am) ... or save it for later (after 7pm) ... even though it is extremely hard to get myself to pull my ars off the couch after sitting there for a bit!
On a Non-running note ... Have I mentioned how God-awful-flippin-stinkin-face numbing-fingers tingling-cuss words-cold it is here? Just to give you a little taste of this, although you will never truly know unless you come here, it was negative 15 degrees when I left for school on monday. With windchill, I believe it was negative 25. Yesterday it wasn't as cold, probably 7 degrees, but we had 35 mph wind gust that felt like ice scraping across your face. ... there was possibility of frost bite in a matter of minutes. Today.... not as cold, but still dang windy.
So, where am I going with this post?
Besides looking for sympathy? Come on, give it to me... YOU imagine going to the gym to get into the pool, swim your swim, get out shower, just to crawl into a freezing car with leather seats that sound like their going to crack open they are so cold. YOU try to imagine motivating yourself to crawl out of your warm bed, change into running cloths, only to run your ass to your car parked in the garage to go to the gym at the weee hours of the morning. Bleh.
Still, where am I going with this?
It's not going to go away. In fact, it's only going to get worse. Not just for one day. Not just for two days. But for the next week ... at the least.
Stacy ... what is your point?
My point ... which there really isn't one besides looking for sympathy ... we got an email from our principal today. No, we are not canceling school because of the weather .. but he has offered us the next best thing. He stated that if we are going have to go out in this weather, we might as well do it in comfort! So, thursday and friday he has offered us the opportunity to wear jeans, sweatshirts, sweat pants, etc. Come comfy! I love it!
I am going comfy tomorrow! Too bad I don't own a Celtics sweatshirt... my Dad would be proud! :)
