after my usual sunday three cups of coffee, i headed out for todays twenty minutes. it didn't ocur to me before shutting the door on the way out to check the weather, and it was spitting just a bit. but i don't mind light drizzle so it didn't stop me. i was rocking it ninja again, so didn't even notice it. the run was a little harder today, a few minutes in i realised i had, in fact forgotten to eat breakfast. most days i wake up hungry, and eat with in 30 minutes of getting up. but some weekend days i just don't, not sure why, i'm still always hungry i just don't get round to it. and today was one of those days. i was up at 7.45 and was out running at 10.30...*belly grumble*
...but anyway, i didn't have fuel and i hope that that was the reason it feel harder today. so i didn't enjoy it quite as much but it still felt good coz i was out there doing it. i even took off my ninja disguise at one point, for it was so warm. it was a balmy 43f /6c, the snow was melting, which although sounds good has its con's. namely that its a mess to run in, there were half block patches of path under water. but i do hope it continues to melt. not having to avoid ice when running in the dark would be a big bonus.
i love my under armour so much i took a trip to the outlet mall in kenosha which has an under armour store. i got a pair of running tights, two tops and some jogga bottoms/sweatpants. they were my luxury item, i don't have a full length pair but never go in store and think to buy them. but they were right there and really nice. i actually put them on when i got home, they were calling my name.
i was allowed that little splurge because i decided that its too much money to go to colorado snowboarding before we leave. as sad as it makes me. but i have a plan that will allow us to go in the next three to four years and i'm content with that. i have presidents day off work so i'm thinking of going somewhere local for the day. i have to get at least one more adrenalin filled day, if not two, before i go. i won't ever be as close to a hill as i am here.
