I already talked about the rain. Love the rain, hate the wet shoes. But it was still a great experience. Other than the Dirty Dash and a little bit of snow from the Mustache Dache, I hadn’t been in the water while running. While it isn’t something I want to do on a daily basis, it really wasn’t that bad. If I had to run any real distance in wet shoes, then we got a problem.
Winter can’t end quickly enough for me. I am ready for spring. I have never been a winter guy and I don’t plan on ever changing that feeling. I like spring, I like autumn, and I can tolerate summer as long as the A/C works. Winter, however, just doesn’t work well for me. Can’t spend much time outside, can’t run much without putting on 10 layers of clothing, have to drive in the snow, yada yada.
Today almost felt like spring, though. It was actually pretty nice. The tempurature was probably in the low 40s, the rain was coming down a bit, the wind wasn’t too terrible and it just didn’t feel like winter.
Maybe Mr. Phil was wrong again.
Back at the gym today instead of running for an hour I decided to get back to doing Stronglifts 5×5. I know people whisper under their breath when I come in and leave within about 20 or 25 minutes, but I don’t really care. I am doing the program as intended and not worried about what they think. It was nice to get back to some lifting though karate may take a blow because of it.
It felt nice to get two bouts of exercise in again. I’m not sure if I can do that along with karate but I suppose we’ll figure it out. If I can’t handle it, I just won’t get up as early.
And I won’t complain too much if that’s the case.
