No Run on a Soggy Saturday

This morning it was hard to get up and get going. It was chilly (only 56 degrees) and gray. Very dreary. And then the bottom fell out and it just started pouring rain. Jason and I had planned on getting in a run together before heading up to Fayetteville (about 3 hours away) and the weather was just not cooperating. T

It was really kind of strange not getting up and heading out for a long Saturday run, which is what I've become used to. Though, I must say I am glad I wasn't planning on 12 miles in this crappy weather. Guess the whole rearranging of plans worked out for the best after all.

After about 45 minutes of waiting around for the weather to clear, we finally just had to admit we weren't going to get in a run unless we hit the gym. Now, had it been warmer, I would have gladly gone out in the rain because it was just the "right" type of rain - if that makes any sense at all. So, for the first time in who the hell know how long, I'm taking a 2nd rest day AND on a Saturday.

Will readily admit that I'm not happy about it. It's throwing me way off schedule (and I was already off schedule as is). I was determined to get in the mileage according to my half plan, and that's not going to happen now.

So, now we're finishing packing up the car and about to be on our way to Fayetteville to hang out with friends and watch the game.

Happy Saturday!
