A Mile A Day

Tough day to get out and run (Read 290 times)

    We had about 3 or 4 inches of snow and 1 inch of ice on top last night. Here is Tennessee that brings things to a halt, although I being from WI am used to much more. It was a difficult day to roll out of bed and keep that streak going, but once I got out, had a great hill and speed interval session. Had planned on a 13 miler today, but the ice covered country roads here made that impractical. It's a good feeling to keep the streak going, even though I am only at 30 days, looking for at least 365 and maybe more. Good running to everyone!

      Where are you in TN?  Nashville here, and day 32 once I get off work and go run.  I did spend 2 hours shoveling my driveway, does that count? Wink
        Hey Trent, I live out in the Cookeville area, right next to Burgess Falls State Park. Road maintenance out here usually leaves a bit to be desired. I am in a pretty rural area. i work in Smyrna though, maybe we can get together for a run sometime.

          Way to get out there!  And yes being from WI you should be used to it!  I spent one winter in Madison and that was enough.

           

          Trent -- glad to see you are back to streaking!

              Thanks!  Trying to keep my minimum at 3-5 miles, preferably 5.  I am using the streak as I did last go around to ensure that I remain consistent in my training.  So far so good.  January was tough, but it was also my 4th highest milage month ever, and that coming off of illness.

                Congrats.  I hate running in snow.  Mostly the unevenness and slipperyness of it all.  Plus since I started running on an indoor track this winter, I have become a total climate wimp.  Slightest bit of cold or wet, and I head indoors

                 

                Today was the first day that it has been nice enough and light enough to run outside after work.  Maybe I will get myself over my aversion to the elements again Smile

                PS.  I was born and raised in Nashville, but have been up in the Pacific Northwest for 15 years (after 2 in Wisconsin, 5 in Germany and 2 in South America).  So, it's been a while....

                  That was fast.  It is done. Got a flu thing.  I'm still way weak after the mono I got in the Fall and every little bug packs a whallop to me.  I was in bed most of yesterday and feel only a hair better today.  Sheesh.


                  In it for the long run..

                    Boo.  Sorry to hear you are sick again.  I think part of it is having young kids.....everything comes home.

                      Rest up . . . I am sure you will be back to streaking in no time!
