Yesterday I wasn't feeling so tough. I decided to pack a bag to hit the gym right after work for a wimpy treadmill run. I was short on time because we were meeting MIL for dinner and had a few stops to make for hubby's trip (he leaves tomorrow), but planned to squeeze in a quick (warm) 3-miler. I got to the gym, swiped my card, headed to the change room... only to discover that I had packed two tops and no pants. I'm not sure why I have so much trouble packing a bag, but I have done this before. I have been known to forget socks and a sports bra (believe it or not, I made it work) and this is not the first time I have forgotten pants. By the time I got home, I didn't have time to go out and run (and wasn't the least bit mentally prepared for temperatures and winds even worse than Tuesday), so it was a bit of a wasted day.
Tonight is clinic and we have an 8-10K out-and-back (negative split) on the schedule. I'm going to have hubby drop me off so I can run home to make up some of the missed mileage. I'm probably going to have to bundle up in every piece of clothing I own to protect myself from the frigid temperatures. Brrrrrr!
I'm taking tomorrow off work to drive hubby to the airport in the morning (as he flies off to a tropical climate and leaves me here to freeze my a$$ off) and plan to run another 10K or so in the afternoon (might as well take advantage of being home during daylight).
