Monthly challenges have been my thing since Charleston…so going on 18 years now.
This month is running at least a mile every day.
I have not been running since I returned from my east coast tour in November.
I can substitute if need be.
i ran saturday…it felt quite good i must say. and i ran today…also quite nice.
but yesterday I did not run. I skiied. For hours. On a x-country trail that may have had no other traffic yet this season. Up up up…and then a wee little bit of giddy floating-in-the-powder down. it felt INCREDIBLE. it was marvelously fun while it was taking place. it was particularly fabulous to earn a couple of superbowl beers (now that January is over).
I was exhausted last night and slept the kind of soundly i can barely remember ever have before…
and today i skiied with Crit. “just the gurls” as she likes to say to Dad-o and Deb-ul. After a while of her practicing, she hopped in the backpack and we scooted on down the trail.
We have several more months of winter. I sure hope there are more training days like both yesterday and today. ‘Cause that’s not training…that’s just regular old life.
