7.6 miles tonight in the cold.
Really dragged around today. Couple of late nights caught up to me, I think, so I took it easier today up until my run. Once I was out on the road, and on the way back home specifically, I started to feel good again.
Today felt a bit like feeling my seasonal depression again, which isn't great. I have no idea how I got through it when I trained for Big Sur, but I'm going to have to dig deep and find that motivation again because I can't afford to struggle with it this year with a toddler in the house. My daughter is a tremendous source of happiness for me, so maybe I can use the good feelings to power through it.
Early morning tomorrow for a doctor's appointment. I'm taking the day out because it's a long day of tests, so my wife won't be able to drive at the end of it. The little one will be in daycare. I hate having her in daycare if I'm not going to work, but we're going to be at the doctor's office most of the day, so she'll definitely have more fun playing with the other kids and the toys.
Hopefully I can will myself to run in the early afternoon tomorrow, because I'm going to need to get back to morning runs for the rest of this week. What killed my streak last year was that I was unable to cram a run in before baby girl's birthday party, so I won't let that happen again this year. I can avoid having to make that choice at all by just running early.
