Winter blues

Well, if you are like most people in the north, you are completely over the winter weather. It can be completely draining to constantly have to bundle up and stay in doors.  I hate being cooped up in the house, but with a 6 month old in the picture now, I don’t venture out just to window shop.  Heck, I don’t even venture out unless my life would depend on it.

This past week I was struggling to get up for my workouts because I was starting to get a cold.  By Friday it had really hit me and I wasn’t moving…well by some standards.  Once you have a kid, you really have no choice but to continue on with your daily activities. I took the day off work thinking I would nap when the little bundle napped.  She just had other plans.

After three good days of rest, I am back at my workouts with Shaun T and hoping to get some running in soon.  Unfortunately, it is not the brightest idea to bundle Hailey up and break out the jogging stroller just yet. ****SPRING NEEDS TO GET HERE NOW****  However, the running schedule is out and I need to start planning.

For the last couple of years I have started the season off with the Louisville St. Patty’s day race.  I may hold off on this one and be a fair-weather runner.  If it is a nice day, lace up my running shoes and join in just to get some exercise.  There would be no ultimate goal with this race besides finishing.  (The longest distance I have run since Nov. is 2.5 miles) I would also like to participate in the 8 mile Patriot Project Road March (requires carrying 35lbs on your back) in March, but we shall see. I may jump into that one on a whim and see how it goes.

If you are interested in running/walking any races this season, check out the challenge series website:

If you want to participate in your first ever 5k and need someone to run/walk with you, get a hold of me!  If it fits into my schedule, I would be happy to help you cross that finish line!!! I will go at whatever pace you are comfortable with so that you push yourself to do your best!

Be confident! Be fit! Be you!
