The City of Minneapolis is usually really good about plowing the trails, but I think they were a little unprepared for an April blizzard. I got out of work too late to make it to run club, and I just couldn’t muster up the drive to head to the gym, so I decided to just go for it, and run outside. I felt hard core!
I had a “variety speed” workout on my training schedule, but sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t care about my training schedule. I was happy just to sludge through a little over 5 miles on unplowed trails.
My lesson learned? Don’t stress about the training schedule. Sometimes there are things outside of your control (like the weather!). Make sure running is still FUN!
But still…I’m definitely ready for warm runs in shorts, and I’m ready to be done worrying about my footing on the snow.
Hurry up spring!
