Remember all of those high temps I was bragging about last week? Well, they decided to go away
It’s been in the 40s-50s with crazy cold winds whipping about. I’ve always found it kind of funny how quickly we acclimate to warmer temperatures, but how long it takes to readjust to the colder days. To put it into perspective, before my half marathon, I was consistently running in 30-55 degree temperatures the entire training period, and it rarely ever felt cold.
So, I get ready to head outside for a run, step out onto my patio, and promptly change my mind. It was 45F, and I was fuh-reeeeezing! Run outside? No way!
Then I remembered how much I HATE running on a treadmill.
I still didn’t want to run outside. AT. ALL. I mean, I got to run in shorts and a tank top last week, and now I have to bundle up with gloves and such? No thanks.
I took my butt to the gym and whipped out a 4 mile speed session instead. Did it suck? Yes. Was I cold? NOPE! Funny how I’ve turned into such a wuss when it comes to temperature. I act like I live in California or something. I can pretend, right?
I felt a little run down today after not getting much sleep last night, so I decided not to add in the extra workout today. Yesterday was technically my off day, so I flip-flopped the two. Instead, I took Mochi out for a walk and had a 15 minute snooze session before I whipped up dinner.
Alexia Spicy Sweet Potato fries, spinach salad w/goat cheese, and a Lightife “burger” on grain bread. Yum! This is my first fake burger patty that I’ve tried, and I’m very pleased with it. Then again, I find most thing palatable that others might not, so take that with a grain of salt. My roommate thought it was pretty good, too, and she had a gourmet burger yesterday.
On a random awesome note: I got my first dividend from REI! You can become a lifetime member of REI for just $20 and then make purchases as usual throughout the year. Most, but not all, products qualify for dividends, so every March, you get back a portion of what you spent towards your future purchases, like a gift card. The dividend is usually 10%, so you can rack up dividends quickly. I purchased mine late in the year and only made one purchase, but check out my dividend.
Sweet, huh? I believe all online purchases count as well, so you should sign up if you have an REI nearby!
