Yes, it has come again, the start of marathon training, hello streets, goodbye social life.
Tuesday nights are clinic nights and again I am the 5-hour pace group leader. It is just the commitment I need to get me out there on windy winter nights, and sunny freezing Sundays. When you run with a group, well, we all rely on one another for motivation, we share laughs, sometimes tears, and usually grunts and groans about the weather (that is mostly from me!).
Although I missed my spin class this week due to cross training, (that would be shoveling snow), I will be more diligent at attending at least two classes per week until the weather breaks and I can once again get out on Ruby Red Rose. I'm sending in my application today to join the Century Ride called the Rideau Lakes Bike Tour to Kingston, Ontario in June. This should be a riot and since it is the week after my marathon, I should be in some semblance of fitness.
Today is cold but bright and sunny and I'm heading into town to go look at snowshoes, yes, snowshoes. I've put my cross country skies and boots in the local second hand store so now I have a credit burning a hole in my wallet. Do I get snow shoes or put the money into upgrading Ruby?
What's a girl to do?
So, that's it for now kiddo's....
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
