Spring fail

Still here! Winter, that is. Spring, you’re falling down on the job.

Sorry, an old picture, but if I take another photo of snow I might lose it.

Last week’s weather was enough to miss a few TPOD workouts, which I’ve decided I am totally okay with (progress) and since I managed to still put in at least 30 min of something (biking or running) that I don’t feel completely useless.

In fact, I imagine this is how normal people work out. This TPOD has been enlightening. Adding this second season of race training has really been difficult for many reasons: the shit weather, the added obligations and truth be told, a destination race that if I’m honest, isn’t really getting me excited. At all.

Maybe I am not cut out for training for a major spring event. I put an incredible amount of time and effort into fall marathon training. It might just boil down to not wanting to add another cycle.

Nevertheless, I trudge on. My back has been really awful, which doesn’t help, but I did get out for an easy stress-relief run last night. No real target in mind, which felt nice. All I had to do was run.

Today should be a long run for me since I fly out for Seattle tomorrow morning (!!!), but we’ll see how it goes. If I do get out (and the weather is supposed to be relatively warm), it will be because I haven’t put in a long effort in awhile and miss the feeling of accomplishment, not because it’s a thing on my calendar.

Amy, July 2013

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at amyupnorth.com.
