First, WTF is THIS?
Is that a SNOWFLAKE?!?!? I thought it didn't snow that much up here. They told us when we were moving here that IT DIDN'T SNOW THAT MUCH HERE!!! It's OCTOBER for God's sake!
It's been freaking cold up here lately guys. I know you all think I am being overly dramatic because I'm a big baby from Florida, but no. Anyone who saw last night's postponed World Series game knows. It's wet, WINDY and very chilly.
Oh, and by the way, the 15 minute walk to the train in the morning has lost a lot of it's appeal. Oh, and don't forget my 10 minute walk to my office. Blech.
Secondly, as of tonight, I have officially lost 10 lbs since I moved to Philly. I wasn't really trying and I haven't been dieting, but marathon training helps and working keeps me from stuffing my face from boredom all day. While I am by no means skinny, I am at least back at my fighting weight. I gained 10lbs those few months last spring with all the baby drama and moving I'm happy that it's long gone. Buh-bye.
Lastly, I sucked it up and ran on the treadmill tonight. I know a lot of you suggested I run during my lunch break, but it's just not possible. The University is not in the best part of town and the campus is pretty small. Plus, since I'm part-time and hourly, my hour lunch is pretty strict. There is just not enough time.
I have a small gym where I live with 3 treadmills so that's great. What is not so great is that I wanted to stab my eyes out after about 10 minutes of running tonight. I tried to make it a bit more exciting by doing a few speed work intervals, but after about 4o minutes I had had enough. I ran a little over 5 miles and called it a day.
Hopefully it will only be about one day a week. And as I recently remembered, I am only in training for 25 more days, then I can start gaining weight and hibernating again. Haha!
