After way over thinking my long run this weekend, yesterday due to circumstances and the help of my buddy DD , I knew what I'd do. I am on call all weekend and need to be available to the hospital. With my hubby out of town taking his mom home, getting too far out wouldn't be good if I got called. So it seemed the run would be indoors. The weather also was colder and windier than expected. After that decision on Friday ,I found out I had 2 patients that I would need to treat both Sat and Sun.
It came to me! Come in around 8am and treat my patients. Go to the Shape Shop gym in the hospital and run on the tredmill there which has a dvd player attached. Go to Blockbuster and rent a movie. I also switched my 3:30 run this weekend with my 1:45 run next weekend.

Everything fell into place at work this morning and I was done treating by 845am. I went down to the treadmill. I rented The DaVinci Code which I have never seen before. It worked perfect and almost made it through the entire movie.

Last night I went on line and ordered a gortex windsuit and next weekend -I will run outside!! For an update on the current temperature check out my sidebar near the bottom the add 30mph winds.

Waddling and shivering............

Yay you! I am so glad that you didn't run outside today. It is mean out. Nasty. If you had run outside, well, you'd be crowned Crazy. :)

Nice job getting your run in and doing in a very efficient and entertaining way.

Excellent solution! I wouldn't wish anyone (not even an intrepid Canadian) a run in this weather. bbrrrr...

Good plan and good way t solve the dilemma. All it takes is a little refiguring sometimes. And believe me, I know what the weather is like! Hope you're surviving the deep freeze.

Dear Waddler,

The planning and dedication and yes, even the BTNs are part of this process and part of crossing that finish line.

It's nice to know that others share the challenges of the constant training schedule juggling--work/family/long runs/marathon dates on the calendar coming closer/the questioning/the fear/and then ultimately, THE JOY! Stay warm, stay focused.
