What I sometimes do.....

I can't believe it's Friday already! I love how fast this week went. Did it go by fast for you too?

I am also glad that this cold snap, polar vortex, or whatever you want to call it has passed. Two weeks of that stuff and I will officially call that our winter! I'm glad it's gone and we are back to our normal temps.

However, I will say that I am glad my downtime was during the cold weather. I have taken a month off from running and basically all workouts and I don't even feel guilty about it and this is why...

Sometimes you just want to sleep in instead of run long on the weekends. 

Sometimes you want to come home from work and watch Judge Judy instead of lace up and go run before it gets dark. 

Sometimes you want to curl up with a good book (I'm certainly intrigued with one now. I picked it at random and it ended up being about a runner).

Sometimes you just want to spend your free moments with family, and that's alright! 

And of course after doing All This ^ for a month sometimes you can't wait to get back outside and run your favorite routes! 

I think I needed a month of comfort and downtime because now I'm ready to be motivated again. The weather here was beautiful this week and I'm hoping we see some more if it for next week when I head to the trails again! -M
