Mileage Monday

Running stats for the week of September 5th - September 11th... can pretty much be summed up as "RAINED OUT!"  BLAH!  This week here in Indiana the weather was cloudy, rainy, chilly, and kind of miserable. I shouldn't complain though since we need the rain desperately in this area.  I think we were getting hit with the aftermath of Hurricane Irene.  I hesitated to run in the rain because I have gotten stuck in a down pour, miles from home, and let's just say it was not a good experience for me. So, if it is raining or there's rain in the forecast, you can count me out for that day of running.  Because of the forecast this week, I have once again started looking into a gym.  I often find myself joining a gym in the winter time because... well... I hate the cold weather with a passion. If I didn't join a gym then I wouldn't work out period.  I'm much more likely to snuggle up in some blankets at the end of the day. Another huge reason my running really suffered this week was because of work being a bit crazy. When my schedule isn't familiar and I'm working late many nights it affects my runs. I enjoy running in the evenings but with the schedule I'm going to have this next week or so it is going to force me to run in the mornings or early afternoons.  I'm going to have to just take that step out of the door and run or I will end up not doing it at all.

Hello, I'm Melissa! said...

I hear you, I hate the rain. I will NOT run in the rain, nope, refuse to do it.

But hang in there with your training! I always remind myself that I feel way better after a run than when I skip a run.

Good Luck and I look forward to reading your race day recap :)
