I know I have been MIA but I’m still sick… I’m hopeful that I’m on the mend however I thought this before and I was so sick last week that I lost my voice…lol. So lets just hope that things are looking up for me. But like most of the northeast we have been pounded with snow and frigid temps so my training that I did squeeze in was spent with my boyfriend the treadmill. However, over the last week I have managed to do a hill workout (on the treadmill) and a few longer NOT long runs. I am by no means feeling like my old self but after yesterday’s run I’m feeling much better….
I have been talking with my girl Nicole over at thegirlwhoraneverywhere and had decided to FINALLY meet up and run a race together. Apparently, mother nature has other plans and our race was canceled…. I’m sooo disappointed. It’s hard to stay motivated when temps dip so low and the snow never seems to stop, so this was a fun way to keep moving. It’s also hard when you have put in so much work for it just to not happen. I’m not going to lie my training was spotty, but I know Nicole not only put her heart into this cycle but was ready to pop some serious times. I’ve said it before and Ill say it again… sometimes stars don’t align and sometimes the perfect race doesn’t doesn’t happen, but it’s upsetting when you don’t even have the opportunity to race.
There will be other races and lucky for me I have plenty of time to really get ready for Boston…. Happy Tuesday (kinda)!
Have you ever had a race cancelled so close to the run date?
How have you all been!?
