I haven't been missing too many runs because of my temporary laziness; though I have been pushing them off to much later in the day. Luckily the running path is well lit and there are several other cold weather runners so I'm not alone. Once I'm out there and moving I feel good and am happy it's just the 'getting out there' that is the issue. I've been averaging around 20+ miles a week and doing much better with cross-training and weights so far. I won't be setting any records in New Orleans in a month but at least I will be able to finish without hurting myself.
Finally some great news happened today... My dad is officially in remission! Happy day!
