I've never been a fan of winter, but this year has been INSUFFERABLE!!!!!!! It's February 8 and the temperature hasn't been above freezing even one day since before Christmas. The cities have completely given up on road maintenance, and even if people shovel their sidewalks, there is still a bedrock of solid ice. How in the world am I supposed to run PRs this year when I can't even run????!!!!!!
In desperation I joined the Y today for a 2-month membership. I figured running laps at the track had to be better than the dreadmill. Yeah, not so much. I had completely blocked out how boring it is. My plan today was 10 miles, or 100 laps, but I gave up in utter boredom after 60. So that was a total waste of a Saturday long run.
If the lack of quality running isn't bad enough, I don't get paid for snow days either. Who ever heard of a job that punishes its employees financially for the weather? I'm ready, willing, able and WANTING to work, yet I've become a prisoner in my house.
The ten day forecast is a solid ten days significantly below freezing and snowing pretty much every day, of course. I can't win this winter. F winter!!!!!!!!! I'm so angry :(
Anyone know of anywhere to run outdoors that is cleared of snow and ice, that isn't I-75? That seems to be the only clear road :(
