Learning to love the Taper

Saturday I was going to get up early and do a short easy 4 mile run before spin, but when my alarm went off, my bed was way too comfy and I hit snooze instead. Still made it to spin class for some active recovery. Good class, I pushed, but not too hard, was dripping sweat by the end, but didn't create a puddle under the bike so it was just a light workout. :)

Sunday I stayed in my PJs all day and watched a Criminal Minds marathon on A&E. Good times. I love my couch.

Today, I got up and cleaned my house a little, cleaned out my closets and made a pile of clothes to donate to salvation army. I have three huge bags of stuff. Mostly old workout gear that is too big for me now. I'm only saving one pair of dress pants from my Fatty McFatterson days as a reminder of how far I've come and the awesome progress I've made. Anyway, after cleaning up I put on my running gear and headed out for a quick run before driving my donations to salvation army. I started out a little tight in the hammies, but after the first mile or so I loosened up. Then about 2 miles into the run it started to sprinkle a little. I kinda like running in the rain so I kept going. Up my favorite hill to make it a nice 6 mile out and back loop. At the top of the hill when I turned around the rain started coming down a lot harder, then with about 2 miles to go it turned to a slushy mess of freezing precipitation. A mile and a half to go and it was near white out conditions. Huge, heavy, wet snowflakes falling down and hitting me like little tiny punches from Mother Nature, and you know what I said, BRING IT ON B*TCH! I finished strong and felt great, aside from being soaking wet and half frozen. It was a great run.

Unfortunately for salvation army, I'm not going to go out and drive in this nastiness so, my donation to them will have to wait until tomorrow. I have to go out tomorrow anyway, need to get my car inspected and run a few more errands.
