Last Thursday basically the whole eastern part of the country got pummeled by an ice storm and it seems to want to hang out for a while.
We got about 2 inches of sleet and over 6 inches of snow. For Oklahoma, that’s killer. My car wouldn’t move for 3 days.
The real downer of all of this is that it put a dent in my half marathon training. The schedule I am on is a 20 week plan so that I have more than enough time to adapt and two extra weeks before the race, but it hurts the high when I don’t get my Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday run.
Today I actually was able to get out and tried running on the treadmill but it isn’t the same. I think that this is one of the mental tests of training and a wake up call that regardless of how perfectly we try to plan things, they end up messed up anyways.
Our campus was pretty beautiful with the snow though, so as soon as the sidewalks are clear I’m getting my cabin fever butt back out on the actual streets for training even in the freezing weather.
