GPS watch wonâ€™t connect to satellite.
Want to leave on your morning run but havenâ€™t pooped yet.
Horrendous tan lines.
Canâ€™t find a clean sports bra. Ever.
Just took a shot of gel only to discover that youâ€™re totally out of water (gross!).
Chafing. Enough said.
It keeps raining, snowing, and/or sleeting on Long Run Day.
I love the snow, but itâ€™s a serious Runner Problem. The weather is not cooperating with me at all. Iâ€™ve been trying to squeeze in a 9 miler all week, and it keeps storming and snowing. And itâ€™s been impossible to coordinate work schedules with the Husband. Before Henry, Iâ€™d happily run in yucky weather, but I canâ€™t put a kiddo in a jogging stroller when it looks like this! And I donâ€™t have Yak Traks, so running would be pretty unsafe anywayâ€¦
Weâ€™re due to get a total of 7 to 11 inches. Iâ€™d say that we already have 5 on the ground! This is a HUGE deal in Charlotte. Southern cities are not prepared for this amount of snow. It will be a â€˜runner problemâ€™ for a few days, at the very least.
But â€“ donâ€™t get me wrong. This is one Runner Problem that I love to have. Being snowed in â€“ especially when itâ€™s only once in a while and the heat is still on! – is so magical. Doubly so when your fridge is stocked with Coco-Nut Cups.
In an attempt to stay on track, I found myself at the gym. I wasnâ€™t planning on doing 9 miles on the dreadmill (it would really and truly kill me â€“ death via boredom), but I was hoping to do an hour or so. Unfortunately, when I arrived, I was told the gym was closing in 30 minutes due to the snow. I sprinted to the track and ran as fast as I could. I squeezed in 3.0 miles.
Iâ€™m doing a half marathon in less than a month! I wish I could say that training was going GREAT, but I have to settle forâ€¦ â€˜decent.â€™ It could be better, but it could be worst. These long runs have been very hard to squeeze in, and Iâ€™d definitely prefer to be doing double digit runs right now. Weâ€™ll see what happens come race dayâ€¦
And in other newsâ€¦
Henry believes he can feed grandma chocolate via FaceTime. Itâ€™s awesome.
He also believes that our Neatoâ€™s sole purpose is to slowly drive around his animal figurines. He gets so mad when the vacuum goes under a chair and knocks off the giraffe!
Toddler Problems, I guessâ€¦
Whatâ€™s your Runner Problem?
