Happy Monday! Orrrrr not because today is the Mondayest Monday to ever Monday. It’s been snowing for what feels like forever, it’s still dark when I wake up in the morning, and I just need a BIG DOSE OF SOME SUNSHINE. Fortunately, I’ll be in Florida in just over 4 weeks – AYE!
Isn’t winter just the worst? Matt and I can’t wait for the day to come when we can move somewhere that doesn’t experience winter like Illinois. I am 100% so totally OVER IT. I mean, I’ve been shoveling for like 4 days now and my back really hurts. WTF. I’m 27 not 87! So, yeah, over it. On the plus side: I’ve had a lot of one-on-one time with my textbooks; we’re all practically BFFs.
The upside to all of this snow, though, is that I don’t feel guilty for spending all day watching The Olympics (er – I mean studying, yeah, that’s what I mean). Anyway, let’s get on to my weekly workouts for the past week.
I’ve started stepping things up and increasing mileage. I’ll be signing up for a half-marathon for the end of May and training for that starts in exactly 2 weeks. Yay! I hope the snow is melted by then (I think it will be) because running in the snow is just… not fun! Don’t get me wrong – it’s nice for a day, maybe two, and then it’s like uuuuugh when will this end?!
