I started my day with my usual Sunday morning butt-kicking spin class at the YMCA today. Amy was no-holds-barred as always. I love it! When I left for spin, it was snowing pretty steadily. When I came back home almost 2 hours later it was still snowing pretty hard. The nice thing is that none of it was sticking!
So while I sat here looking at my Nikeplus.com website and thinking that I should get out and run today. The problem is...it's so nasty out! The snow finally let up but now it's raining. I guess the only plus side to that is it means it's warmer right?!? I decided it was now or never. I put on my long running pants, fleece zip up, and Seahawks hat and hit the neighborhood.
The first straightaway was nice but when I made the corner turn, there was the wind! Wind + rain = a cold, miserable .25 mile. At least after I make the next corner the wind is then at my back, phew! I'm not a fan of rain dripping from my nose as I run. My gloves were so soaked that I couldn't even wipe off my face with them. I think I just smeared more water around.
2 miles in, I wanted to stop but I told myself that I was going to keep going today. Thankfully, the rain let up at this point. My power song of the day came on too so that was helpful. As I came around to mile 2.5 I had to hop up on the sidewalk because of a car. Well as I came off the sidewalk, I didn't even notice the giant puddle waiting alongside the curb. SPLASH! My left shoe was drenched! So splish splash splish splash went the next .5 mile and that's when I decided my workout was done. My poor foot was so soaked that I couldn't take it anymore.
