Just kidding, I like the rain. I do however find it very un motivating to actually leave the house to head out for runs. It definitely helps to have a group of friends who are willing to go get soaking wet and muddy with you. Last night I went out with my friends Spring and Alana and did a quick night run on the 4 lakes loop and each told each other at different times we didn’t really want to be there. The consensus was “if this wasn’t already planned I wouldn’t have gone running tonight”. Sometimes you just need that kick in the butt to get you out of the door. And as soon as we started the stoke was high!
I have been falling in love with rainy night runs. There is something so great and magical about it but I am not comfortable going alone yet.
Finding the time to run between school and studying is proving to be quite an interesting feat but I am up to the challenge. I managed to get out for a few shorter runs and a super fun 15km with my friend Tara. This week I can’t say I’ve been doing great because of my study load but I’ve made it to yoga. Oh yeah! I’ve decided on incorporating yoga a few times a week and back to crossfit to work on my flexibility and strength. My body is a tad sore from yoga yesterday so I feel like it is a much needed addition to the developing training regime. This summer I was off any sort of lifting due to a pretty gnarly laceration to my right ring finger and my strength is definitely lessened. Basically my schedule is jam-packed but I am committed and will make it work in any way possible! I am making it my mission to be an A student and run these 50k trail races! If you set your mind to it anything can happen!
I am going to leave this post short and sleep because my brain is more focused on studying osteology then typing about running. I am going to leave you with a song that I love though!
Until next time!
