Riley and I headed out in the 30 degree weather for our three miles today. I have to say, it was a struggle to get my butt out the door. I am just over half-way through my training and it is getting to me. I think it has something to do with Alan’s schedule as well. He only has two weeks of school left, so only two weeks more of the alarm going off at 4:15 in the morning, only two more weeks of him being tired all the time, only two more weeks of me taking care of the house myself.
It’s funny, I had to fight with myself to go for a run this morning, but I think I am also to the point in training that my body is a bit “addicted” to running. I find that on the days I don’t run, I am a little crabby and restless. I didn’t run yesterday as it was a rest day, and boy! I was crabby! I think I am going to start swimming on Sunday mornings so as to get some sort of exercise in, and crosstraining as well. Hopefully that will fix my mood on days I don’t run.
