Slippery Six

My routine is all out of whack. There is a lot of stuff going on in my life! It's a stressful time for me, but it is all leading to good things in the long run. I've been having trouble getting my workouts in and finding time to get outdoors in the woods. I think I realize now that no matter how hectic things get, I've got to get out for a run or snowshoe or ski every day and I have to do my strength training as often as I can. All the energy I have turns into nervous energy if I don't use it productively.

So this morning, with a big long list of things I need to do staring me right in the face, I went out for a nice 6 mile run on snow covered roads without even giving the list a second glance. It felt great! I ran out and back on the River Road in Cornish. I ran on the shoulder in about 2 to 3 inches of wet snow. I tried running in the tire ruts but that was worse because they were very slick. It was slow going, but good fun running.
