But you couldn't do it. And right now, it sucks.
I got into heavy training a couple of weeks ago and now the weather's gone bad just at the worst possible time. Saturday, I did hill repeats for two hours in sub-zero wind chill [and whoever of you it was who honked at me from your white truck: you have tinted windows. No one can tell who you are. But thanks, anyway; I was at a particularly low point]. Sunday was a long run - with speed work - and it was still below zero and I quit early because my arms went numb (and daylight saving didn't help matters). Last night it snowed, so I had to shovel before I ran and I ended up running in snow, still below zero wind chill. Tomorrow's the last tough day, for a few days at least, and it will STILL be below zero and I have to run hills, probably in the dark and probably on glare ice. We'll see.
I don't know how I'm going to get through tomorrow.
I'm doing the Great Lent, 48 consecutive days of minor fasting, and coinciding with heavy training, I've lost a lot of weight. My clothes don't fit. I'm always tired and a little grumpy.
My heels hurt even while I sleep.
I also gave up social media, so I don't have a lot of places to bitch and moan. Okay, so I've done that. [By the way, I had to do a 80 minute software update on my Suunto watch and it erased all my data. I hate that watch so much.]
On to tomorrow.
