Especially compared to yesterday. Or the day before!
Monday didn't do a thing. Nothing! after the long day and dealing with bed times and stuff I just couldnt do it.
But Tuesday before picking up the kids I went out for a nice run; it was almost sunny, and over 0 C. I had on short sleeves and long over, and was too warm with my coat; tied that around my waist and was still quite hot. Good thing since i forgot gloves. It was SO warm! 8.4 km in 50:25.
Wednesday was a gorgeous sunny warm day. Light coat sort of day. I worked very hard and didnt get out for a workout. Way tired. After lab and picking up kids at home I took Holly to hockey practice then right straight to her first basketball game.
The team did really well after only 3 practices; they were short players and had a 28-18 win over a neighboring school, Holly scored 6 of those points :) It was a good time :)
After Bball Taylor had to be dropped right off at Tae Kwon Do and then I could take the little ones home and get them into bed and ready for the next day. What a tired lot of kids!
Brings us to Thursday and what a change in the weather! It was getting colder and damper last night and was frozen this morning....like -12 and windchill of -25.
I waited until lunch time today and then just had to run. It was sunny but still SO cold. My face just burned! My toes got cold, and I was really dressed improperly. I realised I packed my bag yesterday, for Yesterday's lovely weather. I had no sweater or mitts (gloves yes) and no hat although I had a non-running one in my other bag. Light running tights, not the heavy ones. Not the cushy coat but instead the light windbreaker.
I did get warm underneath. And eventually my fingers warmed up. At least til I could feel them. I kept pulling my scarf over my face but then I had to take off my sunglasses (fogging) and Thennnnn the wind burned my eyes so I could not see through tears that froze on my face. The scarf got gross with breath and snot and I kept turning it and pulling it up til I felt like I was suffocating then I would pull it back down....Blowing frozen snot across the sidewalk; almost hit by 2 inattentive drivers, good thing I am watching for them because they are not watching for me.
But it was a sunny day, and it was a snow and ice free run for the most part; I was even on the trail for awhile. I was so glad to get out but SO glad to get back 56 minutes later because I was frozen to the core. 9 km done.
It took ages to warm up and I picked up Holly and went home where we made cookie dough and then after Annika got home and we had supper I took these two to Annika's hockey practice where we skated pretty hard!
We are expecting some snow tomorrow YAY! Maybe enough to make things slippery; I promised the kids I would take them coasting if there was snow and they went to sleep right away.
It's looking like a realllllly busy weekend. But I plan to get running in!
