Hit or Miss

This past week has been a little hit or miss. I had one amazing run, one terrible run, and two runs that I would classify as "meh". On the bright side, I was having a terrible morning one day last week, and my day was instantly brightened by the discovery of a tiny Stonehenge in someone's front yard in my neighborhood.

Mini Stonehenge? Thanks, Chicago. I needed that today.
I'm still loving the cold weather, but I have not been loving the rain that has accompanied the cold temps the last couple of days. This morning was a real struggle. Kind of. Okay...not really. I slept in and snuggled with Hannah and basically stayed in bed until I had to get up to go to work. At the time, it felt like the right decision. It was cold and rainy outside. And it was warm and cozy inside.

The only problem is that now I have to run tonight. Blerg.

I'm really not feeling it today, but I'm going to suck it up and go for a run anyway. If it is still raining/snowing when I leave work, then I'll be heading to the gym to run on the treadmill. I made sure to bring my gym bag with me to work so I have no excuses, where all my will power is drained the moment I sit down.

It is a struggle to get going each day, but I genuinely enjoy myself once I'm out the door and actually running. I keep reminding myself that I have a 5k this Thursday and an 8k in December. I'll never be fast enough to be competitive, but races still keep me motivated to keep running, even on days when I just want to nap.
