“This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spartan Shape-Up, Day 36:
Weeellll.... Today was supposed to be a 25 minute Run Day. Unfortunately, it didn't happen... Life got a little bit in the way today. Life, and pre-hurricane Irene weather. haha... It seemed that ever time I would be like okay, I can run now! It would rain. And by "rain," I mean severe downpour. Then I'd be like OKay, I'm going to go and do this, and I'll run in an hour... it's get sunny, then I'd head to put my sneakers on and it would downpour. WTF. Definitely not making excuses for not running today... I would like to report that since this was an inadvertent "rest" day, I rearranged my schedule of workouts for this week, so I still get everything in. Go Me.
No excuses, no "skipping" days... just little hurdles that are to be dealt with and readjusted. Tomorrow, it seems, will be Run Day (25 Min! AH!).

However, something productive may have come out of today. While visiting a friend today, I may have recruited her husband to race with me next year (*he* doesn't know that yet, but WAhaha...).   Sounds like he's trying to get back into running, and adventure racing seems like it'd be right up his alley. What better goal than a friendly-competitive Spartan Race to work toward, to keep you moving all winter?

On that note... I'm off to drink some more water (I'm almost in the groove with this "hydration" thing...), and listen to the rain. TOMORROW, we Run! (I know I can, I know I can...)
