My kids have been out of school or delayed for more days than I can remember. They were out yesterday and will be again today. My elementary school child is making up time on “early release” days and I think my middle school kid just ran out of days. Too bad they can’t all go to school on Monday.
Ooh, did I say that out loud? Don’t get me wrong. I love my kids. Shoo and I even spent a fair amount of time outside yesterday. It took me 2 hours to shovel our sidewalk and dig out my car, which may not sound like it was that hard, but my sidewalk is not very long. Two hours of lifting heavy wet snow. Pretty sure I got my weight lifting in for the day. At least the snow was beautiful.
Wanna know what else I did? I ran 9 miles.
No, I did not run 9 miles in the snow. I ran them on the treadmill. In socks. I’m saving lots of wear and tear on my running shoes this year.
I was so sweaty by the end there was a puddle on the treadmill. Guess I can’t complain that I was cold, huh?
Have you seen this post? The Winter that Nearly Killed All the Moms. Yes, it is so that winter. Virginia is not *quite* that bad as power outages have not been widespread, but it’s been awful nonetheless. I used to be a lover of winter. I used to sing the praises of training hard for a spring full of races.
Mother Nature, you win. Summer is better. 99* with 99% humidity is better. I want sun. I want heat. I want summer.
Please don’t remind me of this when I’m running on my treadmill with a fan on me because it’s *too hot to run outside*.
