…and a bit of snow.
The weather turned, and we woke up on Sunday morning to a bit of light snow clinging to the green grass and cherry tree blossoms.
I wore long pants for my run for the first time in –well– weeks.
Also, I’ve been running every day for twenty-four days. A hundred and ninety klicks in the bag. And while I was aiming for somewhere between three weeks (which was reasonable) and the entire month of April (which would have been pretty awesome too) I’m stopping at twenty-four days.
I was trudging on through a cold and windy ten klick run, Jenn having brought little E along for the ride in the chariot. Leon had taken over on stroller duty and while I totally would have taken a turn and pushed for a while (a) he was having way too much fun and (b) I was just so damn tired I was not fighting too hard for the front of that queue.
We trudged out ten klicks, and my legs and my back and my brain all hurt at the same time. I could push through and burn out six more days in April, but I think it would just be diminishing returns. Maybe even negative effect. Miles in exchange for both my sanity and health. So… I think I’ll call it three successful weeks plus three bonus days. Done.
And then he rested… and it was good.
We now resume our regularly scheduled training program.
