I’m tired of the cold. It became quite cold again on March 21st. It doesn’t make any sense. Well it does actually, when you live 2 hours south of the Northwest Territories winter likes to sink its teeth in and hold on.
The forecast for the next 7 days is -18C to -20C overnight with highs up to -2C. If it has a “negative” sign in front of a number that cannot be called a “high” in my opinion anymore. Perhaps if I refer to the temperature in farenheit I will feel slightly better.
I’ve had a few decent runs outside this week, but I find my enthusiasm is wearing down. I had to remind myself during yesterday’s run that I need to be happy and grateful to be running again (recall foot injury) and I am and that kept me going, but it’s getting harder and harder to continue embracing the cold.
It also didn’t help that there was a really cold head-wind and the footing was really tricky thanks to the inch of new snow over ice.
I’m sure in another 2 weeks spring will really be here and I’ll be complaining about something else (like mud), but I’m kind of looking forward to complaining about something else – with enthusiasm of course.
