Then I was really tired last night. I wasn't feeling it. I realized the morning temperature was going to be around 18. I was going to have to go really early, while still dark. Yada, yada, yada. I was glad I knew a friend was waiting for me, so I got out of bed at 5:20 on a Saturday to go meet her. We had a great time! I was so glad I went, it wasn't bad at all, and the miles FLEW by!
My gloves turned out to be not quite warm enough and my fingers did lose all feeling the last hour. I had frost forming on my eyelashes. I got a side stitch towards the end. BUT I also felt really good that we got it done! I was on with my day feeling good about myself, proud of what we had done, and the important thing was I SHOWED UP!
I have heard that more than half of the battle with running, working out, training, etc, is just SHOWING UP. I was so glad I did that today. I felt good that after a dismal two weeks I could still crank out 10 miles like it was nothing. That is something to be proud of, dangit! Another quote that I love it by Bob Harper and he says, "True motivation comes when excuses cease to exist". So true.
Happy training! Just do it!

I have been thinking about what I really want for Christmas this year, and BOY! I hope Santa has a big sleigh to bring me the stuff I want! Yeah, this is the "if money is no object" list. But a girl can dream right?
Yeah, basic, but I need a bike helmet. Not necessarily this one, but it might be nice as I enter the cycling world...
And, what good is a bike helmet with no bike? That would be just silly, right? Yeah, this is my dream ride below, except in red or pink...LOL
And, I wouldn't mind a new Garmin, since mine has been dead the last few months. I soooo miss it!
Just a fun kinda wish list. If you have a triathlete on your Christmas buying list, take note! Whose going to send this to Ken? LOL
