1. Yesterday morning I got up early for a pre-dawn run so that I could hit up a Spin class last night for the first time in a few weeks. I’ve been having some trouble trying to fit in the mileage I want in addition to strength- and cross-training. Ideally I would love a weekday morning Spin class, but the earliest one is 6:15, which wouldn’t allow me to get to work on time. Hopefully once daylight comes earlier, I can squeeze in a longer run before work at least once a week. I should also get back into my morning gym routine once or twice a week.
2. We’re expecting some significant snowfall over the remainder of this week. It won’t be as crazy as what some of you have experienced recently, but it should make my next few runs interesting. I have a group tempo/LT run tonight, easy run on Saturday and long run Sunday (somewhat of a taper for next weekend’s Chilly Half Marathon).
3. I have to mention the stellar day that Canada had in the Olympics yesterday, with 4 medals including gold and silver in the Bobsleigh. We have also tied the record number of gold medals ever won by Canada in the Winter Olympics.
(Note: staying up late to watch the Olympics is not conducive to morning workouts…)
