Cold Front (and back, and sides...)

Holy Guacamole, I was not expecting 41 degrees to feel so cold today! Apparently it's time to dig out my (limited) cold weather running gear. Brrr!  Shivering burns calories, right?

Speaking of burning calories... Yeah, I'm not. I think I've actually gained a little since I started my DietBet. Ugh. Fall just makes me want to eat! 

Ok. That's a lie. Breathing makes me want to eat. Still. Ugh. 

So anyway....  

I've decided to go back to run/walking for awhile. I'm not really "feeling" running right now, and I need to do something different to keep myself going.  Today's run was all-running and while it felt good, it was only 2 miles. Anything longer than that and I kinda get bored these days. So, run/walking it will be for awhile. 

What I finally got through my thick skull is that running/being active is a lifelong thing, and like anything else in life, it will change over time. So I'll run/walk for awhile, then run again, then maybe take a break or add speedwork back in... Who knows. The main point is that I keep on keepin' on, in whatever way works best at that particular moment.  There is no "right" way to run. You just... Run.

So. Let's run.


  1. Maybe you need a little running break - maybe some boot camp or some other activity might be more enjoyable for awhile?
    And - it started in the teens this morning - we are finally up to 28!!!

    1. I know that I should be doing something different, even if I am going to keep up the running - but I just can't get myself into it! I don't know why it's so darn hard for me to do the things that would be good for me. =(

  2. It snowed today. Even though I'm a fan of winter, it's a little early for me. I've trained for many winter/ spring races, I don't have that much winter running stuff.

  3. Just run is right! Enjoy it! It's down in the 20's here lately and it's amazing how cold it feels after a couple of weeks in the 40's. Brrrr!!!
