Now that it’s March 7 (Happy 20th Birthday to my son!), the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler is less than one month away. Today I have a post on the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run blog about “How I’m Training For The Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run.” (Please click through and check it out!) The problem is, I haven’t been training for the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler as much as I want to.
While I was pleased to be able to run in Copenhagen two weeks ago, those were relatively easy runs, not hardcore training runs. Last week I got in a few good runs, but this week I hit some roadblocks.
You see, even though it’s March, this is what my neighborhood streets look like.
And, after 13 years of reliable service, this is what my treadmill looks like.
The repairman left it disassembled until the replacement parts come in because it was unsafe to use. :-(
As much as I was getting sick of plodding along on the treadmill, I have really missed it! Yesterday I used the treadmill at my office gym, but I don’t use the gym often enough to have a good routine. I had to take time Wednesday night to pack for getting ready for work at the gym–and still I forgot deodorant!–and I started my treadmill workout at about the same time I’d usually be wrapping up my workout at home. Although I was at my desk a bit earlier than usual, I still had to scarf down my Starbucks breakfast and squeeze in some social media “me time” before I could start my day.
My favorite Starbucks breakfast:
Grande Bold Coffee + Low Fat Turkey Bacon Sandwich
(with egg and cheese)
I just felt discombobulated without my normal morning routine.
I’m crossing my fingers that my treadmill gets fixed tomorrow, and that we have seen the last snow for at least a few months!
How do you adapt to changes in your daily routine?
If you shower at the gym, do you keep a gym bag fully stocked with everything you need?
