I am SO excited that Daylight Savings Time starts this weekend. Yes, losing an hour of sleep will be a bummer, but having the extra daylight after work is SO clutch now that my mileage is really ramping up. Up till now, most of my weeknight runs have been pushed to the treadmill because it would get dark too early (or because I’m a weenie in the cold). Now, it will be a lot easier and more pleasant to complete those shorter runs outside.
Starting today, Mary Poppins rehearsals will be increasing dramatically in frequency. In case you missed my little freakout post yesterday, here’s what’s up: Until now, I’ve been averaging one, maybe two rehearsals a week. Now, it will probably be Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 6:45-10 and Sundays from 12:45-5 every week until the show opens. And the show opens in three weeks. THREE. WEEKS! Where did the time go? With ever-increasing mileage and now more rehearsals, it’s about to get REAAAALLLY busy up in here. I just need to grit my teeth and hold on until April 11.
Thankfully, this week is another little cutback week. While my mid-week, shorter runs are continuing to get longer and more intense, I “only” have to run ten miles for my long run tomorrow. Ha. “Only” 10 miles. Who am I and how is it normal to use the phrase “only” when describing a 10 mile run? Marathon training is crazy…
On a lighter note, the weather for my long run tomorrow is looking picture perfect. Mid-50’s and sunny. I can’t even tell you how happy this makes me. Lately my long runs have all been done in the cold and with little sun. I’m looking forward to getting my Vitamin D on.
Are you excited about the time change?
