So what's been going on? Running. Work. Family. Food. (Not necessarily in that particular order.) Basically a whole lot of boring, everyday, regular life sort of things. You could probably add a big dose of Race Envy to that list. Apparently, I have friends that do plan races every now and again. Maybe I should be hanging out with those friends more.
We are three weeks into January and I have logged 78 miles so far. I should be on track to start the new year with a 100 mile month. Don't get too excited because the universe has a way of wrecking my plans when I get too excited. One day at a time, right?
So let's talk about today.
We don't usually run on Wednesdays, but Mother Nature has scheduled a bit of cold weather for tomorrow, so we opted to run our Thursday hilly route today. After yesterday's 6, very cold, very windy miles, my legs were a little bummed to be asked to run again. I did everything I could to push them up and down the new, hilly route we have added from Rochelle's house for the last couple of weeks. Let's just say I am glad that is over.
I did get a new pair of my beloved Brooks Ravenna 4s earlier this month and I am loving them. I am sad that the 5s are so different, and my local shoe expert thinks the new version is not a good choice for me. Apparently it's too much shoe for my narrow feet. There is even talk of my second shoe being a brand other than Brooks.
Here's hoping they will change their minds and go back to the 4s when the 6s come out at the end of the year. Although, I don't think this one pair will last me that long.
I do need to do some serious thinking about what race I want to run next. As always I feel a little lost and without direction. I like to have a plan, but sometimes it's hard to come up with one.
One non-running relating bit of news, Camy has her audition for the high school orchestra tomorrow. Seriously, high school! I don't know if I'm more nervous for her to do well, which I am confident she will, or freaked out over the fact that she is auditioning for HIGH SCHOOL. I am no where ready for that.
This cannot be good for my mid-life crisis.
I'm going to go sit in the corner and take some deep cleansing breaths.
