On Sunday I wanted to head out the door for a 9/10 mile run..I waited for late morning because it was cold and windy. I thought I could out wait the temp and wind. Really it was the wind that I was hiding from. The upper 30's I could deal with. Well they say that you learn something every time you run..today was one of those days. Last night I didn't really have dinner..I just picked on random snacks since I wasn't really hungry. Well this would turn out to be a huge fail on Sunday's run . I started out and immediately hated life. The wind was just pushing against me. Ugh..I hate wind! Then as I kept going I just felt like the wind was stealing my breath away. My chest was hating the cold too. I felt like I was wheezing while I ran. Turned out that I did manage to squeeze out 6 hated miles. I guess the lack of food from the night before didn't help my energy levels while I was running against the wind. Next time I will make sure that I have something good for a run the night before.
I did come home and have some yummy lunch..I made some chili since it is supposed to be a bit of a cold spell this week. I don't think I have made chili at all this year, so sounded perfect to me this week. I came in to the yummy smell of chili in the crockpot. I headed up and took a quick shower to help warm me up and settled down to some very yummy chili. Perfect food after a windy run.
I'm not a huge chili fan, but this just hit the spot today..
