I'm SO ready for Spring...Well, Spring weather. The season itself starts in two weeks and judging from recent weather, just because the calendar says Spring does not mean that the weather will be reflective of the season. Here in the North country we are still buried under inches upon inches of snow. It's still cold. Suddenly I wish I was a kid so I could have Spring Break! I suppose I COULD however I haven't been at my job long enough for vacation and my boyfriend doesn't get more vacation until April. We'll for sure be taking an actual vacation at some point - hopefully before fall vacation!
The weather actually looks like Spring might make an appearance at some point in time, possibly before the start of Summer. It's sunny today and concrete surfaces have that wet look to them, as though snow and ice are melting. The temp is in the 20s and I actually see 30s (and no snow!) on the ten day forecast. They're calling for rain, and a high of 37 on Friday. Let's hope that the high does get to that and that it isn't slippery, as I have a follow-up with my surgeon that day! Someone else is riding with me for her pre-surgical consult so it's pretty important that the weather cooperate. She doesn't know where she's going and has to have her consult before surgery (obviously). So, if I cancel, she's SOL. SO. Dear weather, behave.
Anyway... So that's that.
Today will be another running day and hopefully some ST. That will depend on how long it takes me to clean out the driveway. We got some snow the other day and we haven't been at my house to clear it out....soooo...There's my agenda. I really want to use the barbell set that I bought last weekend so I'm hoping that I will be able to get things done pretty quickly. I also have a few things I'd like to get done around the house before the weekend hits. We shall see... I'm not even home yet (at my Dad's business in his office waiting for something so I figured I'd blog) so who knows what time will be like this evening. I'm not anticipating it to take all that long so I should be able to be home and ready to roll by six. In a perfect world I'd start my run between 6:30 and 7 and have time to get some stuff done. This will also depend on how tired I decide I am. I'm pretty sure that my dinner will be spaghetti squash since I typically have that once a week and it sounds pretty darn good today!
Other foods have been a protein shake with a banana and milk for breakfast; salad (lettuce, carrots, turkey breast, cheese, and dressing) and yogurt for lunch, roasted sea salt almonds and an apple for my snacks. Plus lots of water, of course!
Well I suppose that's it for now... I need to get moving so I can get home and get things done.
