Rain to Shine

I don’t like rainy days.  I don’t mind snow.  Love the sun.  I even like a dry, gray day.  We have had rain for two days straight.  I miss running outside.  But I took my workout to the gym again.  I did some speed work with intervals on the treadmill and took a spin on the elliptical.  I also did some weights.  It was a good workout.

The afternoon was spent at my BFFs house so our little guys could play together.  So nice to sit and chat with my friend while our kids play like we used to when we were little.  We’ve known each other forever, literally.  She mentioned a 5K that is taking place next Sunday in her town.  By the end of the day my husband and I, and my friend and her husband were all registered.  I am so excited that my good friends and family are getting excited about races and running.  I certainly didn’t force it on anyone so it’s even better that they are doing it on their own.

I’m really looking forward to the race next week.  I was hoping to PR at a 5K in December, but I might just give it a whirl next weekend.  We’ll see what the weather does and how I’m feeling considering I am working the night before.  However, I have been feeling strong on my runs lately and I have been running just under a 10 minute mile.  I would still have to push harder than normal especially in that last mile, but I think I can do it.  The only person I ever race against is myself!

In the afternoon the sun did shine.  It made for a lovely ride home with the little guy conked out in his car seat.  I didn’t make a dent in my “to do” list but it was a wonderful day.
