I’m tired. I’ve been tired since May, I think, but now that the weather is cold and dark, I’m really tired. I honestly think the Universe designed winter so that we would sleep a little more and do a little less. Unfortunately, the rest of the world doesn’t seem to buy into the idea of 6 hour work days from November to March. We still have to do what we’ve done – we just have to do it in the dark. I don’t like it.
Winter was made for lazy bones, hot baths, heavy blankets, yummy food, and lots of sex. And naps.
I’m in week 3 of a new marathon training schedule, even though there is no marathon at the end of the rainbow. My next registered race isn’t until April. My body is feeling the impact of a more consistent schedule, and that makes me even more tired. And it’s hard to get excited about stepping out for hours of running in the bitter cold, even if I do feel better when I’m done.
All I can say is, thank god the day after tomorrow is Friday.
