partial victory this morning. got out of bed at 6:30 but not out the door. didn't help that it was 36/2 degrees. let's see if daylight savings helps.

a day of disappearing motivation. i got dressed to run, got out the door, it's a glorious day, and i just did not want to start. i paced around for a while trying to psych myself up and failed.

dang :|

those early morning schedule shifts are almost impossible. meh! i've had a few last several months but never gotten one to stick.

maybe do some walk/stride stuff .. just so you can get out the door by walking, enjoying the beautiful weather, then throw some strides in. might help, dno !

yesterday morning

- run 30:27, 6.24 km
had to get it in after an early morning call. surprisingly quick (4:53 pace) despite this being the route with the biggest elevation gain/distance ratio, i guess the early start times really do slow me down.

- run 55:38, 10.55 km
raining but not cold

- stretch

early morning run week complete. actually did a normal distance this morning, as well. nice. managed to get up at 6:30 every day, although i only went for three runs instead of 4-5. that's okay, my mileage has been so low over the last couple months that it's probably for the best to take it slow. especially when combined with the schedule change. gonna try to wake up 10 minutes earlier next week.

evening

did a bit of extra walking at the encampment outreach i've been doing so decided to ballpark measure it on google maps. walked at least 5.5 miles. on an average friday it's probably more like 3.5.

it's below freezing this morning. woke up as scheduled but decided that's too cold for me to run in (yet). went to the building's gym and there was already a guy on the one dreadmill. shit. think i'm going to have to come up with an alternate plan for the winter.

ended up feeling sick yesterday, had to work the full day anyway (downside of the remote work adjustment). forced myself to stay awake until like 9:45 just to make sure i didn't give myself pseudo jet lag. woke up at like 4:30 with a headache, took some ibuprofen, fell back asleep, woke up at 6:20 feeling like a million bucks.  :highfive:

- run 41 mins, 8 km
forgot to restart watch for a few minutes at one point so this is an estimate. close enough. improvised a new route that ended up around the tidal basin, which is so pretty. especially in the early morning. great light.

day 5 of this headache. it shifted from the left side to the right either overnight or early this morning, i can't tell. pretty much bagged work again today. dragged myself into a run in the afternoon and it was a good call, as usual: headache still there but much diminished.

went skiing for a couple of days in vermont this past week, first time doing that in 5-6 years and it was a blast. calves quite sore, don't usually use 'em like that.

- run 34:25, 6.59 km
hilliest route but this still felt like more of a struggle than it should. pretty out of shape after what feels like the longest layoff of my adult life. but good to end the year with a run, however short.

- stretch

happy new year, y'all!
