W Stands for Wimp

Well I hate to admit it but I've turned into a big, fat wimp. My running is suffering terribly. Or is that, I'm suffering terribly? Last week while in Oklahoma for Thanksgiving I had the privilege of running on a treadmill at my brothers house. Since returning home I have ran once in 4 days.

But in my favor I do have to admit the weather hasn't been entirely cooperative. This week we have seen chilly temps, overcast, cloudy skies and 10-20 mile an hour winds. Probably most enthusiastic runners don't see this as a problem but for me..........

Lets just say after standing on my feet all day at work, outside in this type of weather, the last thing I want to do when I get home is run. I really wish I had the motivation to just get out there and do it, but I don't. All I have wanted to do is come home from work and jump into a hot shower which is exactly what I have done.

As I am sitting here typing this now, it looks to be another day exactly like the last few. But the one good thing is I am now thru with work for the season. Hopefully, I will muster up enough motivation to get out there today.

However if I don't you'll be able to spot me in any crowd. I'll be the one wearing a big "W" on my back.

I know what you mean about the weather of late. Dreary, chill to the bone, windy days. Yesterday with all the rain, I never even changed out of my sweats. I did not realize that you don't work in the winter months. Maybe we will still have some sunny, tolerable days and you'll feel like running. I should at least walk 3 times/week but I haven't had the get up and go lately. I guess my shirt will say WIMP 2!!!!!
