OH, JANUARY! YOU KIDDER, YOU!!!!

So today being the last official day of January (aka MY PERSONAL HELL) I figured I'd try and exit this month on a positive note.

So I signed up for the Sun Run. Because I'm a FRIGGING IDIOT. Heh. But seriously, folks. I think it's going to be a good thing. But this means I need to start some training. So I figured I would try to end January (aka MY PERSONAL HELL) by starting training today so that I would have a reason to feel great about myself, despite all the crap that I had to deal with this past month.

So just before 7, I went out for a little jog. I soon found out all the reasons why this was a really crappy idea. First off, IT WAS COLD. That part didn't matter so much when I started running, because I warmed up right away. However, it was not so good for my lungs. You see kids, I somehow forgot about my ASTHMA. Apparently running around in the freezing cold doesn't do wonders for the asthma. I was only about halfway through my intended workout when I started wheezing. So the running turned into a brisk walk. Wah. Also, I learned that running in the dark is not a good idea either. It makes it difficult to dodge wayward tree branches in the middle of the sidewalk. And lastly my dears, it is not a good idea to run when there is ice and frost on the ground. THAT IS HOW PEOPLE GET HURT.

So I think it's safe to say that there will be no more running outside... at least until the weather improves. I'm going to have to get my ghetto butt a gym membership (eeeek!) even though I don't know if I can really afford it. It's cool though. It's for the greater good.

I just hope that the wheezing is gone by the morning. BECAUSE FEBRUARY DOES NOT HAVE TIME FOR THAT BULLCRAP. FEBRUARY IS GOING TO BE AWESOME.

It has to be. It just has to be.

You should still run in the morning, just bring a flashlight, run then walk in rotation to help you breathe better and bring your mp3 player. It makes it easier. Kind of.
