Ship’s Log–March 16th


I woke up this morning feeling like I hadn’t slept at all. The approaching winter storm has my body going into hibernation mode, I guess.  I had to really push myself to go on my training run, though I felt pretty good once I was out there. Running in the cold is always a bit harder on the system, however, and I was thoroughly exhausted by the time I was finished with what was otherwise a fairly short and easily paced jog.

Fortunately I had thrown a stew into a crock pot before heading out, so I didn’t cave and order take out for dinner. This worked out so well that I am probably going to make a habit of using the crock pot on the days I do my long runs.
