Opportunity Missed, But More To Come

Woody and I watched the weather forecast last night (between Eminem/Rhianna/Dr. Dre/Skylar Grey and Mick Jagger Grammy performances) and not once did they mention that it would be 46 degrees at 5am! I wasn't prepared to run outside this morning, so I went to the gym instead and missed out on a great morning.

The good thing was that I had another really good run this morning after the one Saturday! I was a bit nervous about it when I woke up this morning because I went to what turned out to be a really tough yoga class yesterday morning, and my muscles were hurting a bit first thing. But after finishing my normal routine of dynamic stretching and and a quick warm-up, I was off and going. I only had time for 5 miles, so that's what I did and finished up with my regular cool-down routine, a really quick strength workout and a little more stretching.

While I missed out on the weather, according to the Weather Channel, it looks like there's more of it to come and I definitely plan on taking advantage of it!

  • Woody & I went to dinner and a movie Saturday night, but are celebrating Valentine's Day tonight at home, making dinner here and enjoying a nice dessert. Nothing too special. How will you celebrate?

Oh man, it was gorgeous out! You'll get more soon, I hope. We're celebrating with our own tradition: gf mac and cheese with apple, white cheddar, and gruyere. It's out annual indulgence :)
Happy Valentine's day to you both!

I to went to the gym this morning. It was pretty windy here. We will have a few more chance to get some of that nice weather the rest of the week. Enjoy your early morning runs in the nice weather.
