Why am I up so early Sunday morning? I'm not sure. But I rolled over at 4:30 am and was ready to roll outta bed. Wide awake and bushy tailed. So instead of fighting it, why not just get up? After all, it is the weekend and I can take a nap if need be later on.
So a recap on running as of late cuz all I seem to be doing is posting pictures of Disney. Friday was brutally cold, so I broke down and headed to the Y for a dreadmill run. I wasn't going far, just needed to loosen up the legs a bit. 2 miles. Tried my first 800 meter repeat to see what it would feel like. I think I'm going to die. However, I need to keep in mind, this was after running a marathon 5 days before. And a half marathon 6 days prior, so my legs have probably not fully recovered.
Saturday we slept in and hit the trails around 9:00 am for a 6 miler. We turned on the weather before we headed out and they said it was 27 degrees with a windchill of 18. Wrong. To our surprise when we stepped outside, it was much warmer. The sun was out. The sky was beautiful blue. The birds were singing. What a beautiful morning for a run.
The trails were still covered in about 2 inches of snow. Nice, soft snow. It was fun to run in but was very difficult. I had to change my stride-which felt weird and it slowed me way down. It wore my booty out and my hammies were screaming.
We later took Ms. Mols out for a 2 mile walk after the sun melted most of the snow. It was a melty mess but it was good to get her out and she loves it. I'm sure she'll get at least another 2 miles in today.
Then it will be on to the bottling wine Doug made. We already have our next batch brewing...Raspberry Chocolate Port. A dessert wine. I'm dying for some of this and can hardly wait.
Now, onto finding my free registration for the Olathe Marathon to sign up. And then I may be ready for a nap.
