Race review backlog

Posted Jun 07 2011 4:24pm
I'm behind, way behind, on my race reviews. I'm blaming it on the weather. Yup, our Junuary cold and rain when it should be bright, sunny and hot, is driving me buggy. I don't think I've ever experienced Seasonal Affective Disorder in June before. Normally by February (or March at the latest) I'm over the depression, sleepiness, lethargy and irritability that I experience every winter. All I feel like doing now is hibernating, or curling up with a good book. Not much gets written that way. In fact, not much of anything gets done.

I do intend to write about my third marathon and first two half marathons of the year. Just as soon as we have a few consecutive days of sunlight and warmth. That should stimulate my brain enough to be excited about those runs and glad to relive the freezing/short course/too much champagne races (in order, Oz Marathon/Mermaid Half Marathon/See Jane Run Half Marathon).

Meanwhile I'm still working out with my trainer twice weekly. Some time in the past weeks I hit my one year anniversary of training which is both gratifying for my sticktoitness and scary for the money I've spent there. I enjoy those workouts (not so much the getting up at 5 am) and can see the difference in my strength and stamina. I'll continue these trainings as long as I think they're beneficial.

I also started running once a week after work at Lake Chabot. I have a love/hate relationship with that place but have to admit that even a few weeks there have improved my hill running ability. I'm hoping that Bree and I continue those runs throughout the (hopefully warmer or hot) summer and into fall.

Meanwhile I'll go back to scouring my weather reports in hope of good news!
