I think spring is on it’s way. Only 4 weeks or so late….
but this morning, I came back from my run to this:
And we all know daffodils never lie.
I’ve got about 3 weeks until my next half–the Indy Mini Marathon (can I just say how much I hate the term “mini marathon.” Nothing mini about it.) I’m a little tired, just coming off the Shamrock, but at the same time I’m feeling a huge sense of accomplishment when I look at my training plan and see “7 miles progressive tempo” and know that I can whip that out, return home with hot coffee for the Mister, make lunches, see 3 Things off to school, and shower all before 8am. Granted, to get this done, I’m more or less toast by 9pm.
This morning, while totally enjoying the above freezing temps (finally!!!), I realized that this is the first ever April that I’ve been able to run. April 2012 and 2013, I was out with stress fractures. #countingmyblessings! So, whether I hit my sub 2:00 goal in Indy or not, this spring (however late in coming that it may be), is already a good one in my book!
