It has been a wet and rainy past couple of mornings over here. It's a good thing that I'm on a short rehab from running for the moment or it would have definitely disrupted my running plans. Not have a race to train for also makes me kinda lazy to wake up and lace up.
The plus side of the morning rains is the yearly haze hasn't been showing itself and I'm hoping it stays that way. The skies have been nice and clear after the morning rains unlike the past few years where there would be a blanket of haze enveloping the country.
The only downside to this rainy and cold weather is I'm feeling absolutely lazy at work and having to look through this br12 flyer project is taking loads of effort. Maybe I'll go grab lunch and some ideas will come up then.
It's already been slightly over two weeks since the Gold Coast Airport Marathon and I'm still missing the place. This has been my third year there and I just can't get enough of it. I'm already planning for next year's edition! That's how much I'm missing the place.
Besides, I really do have some unfinished business with the marathon which I intend to finish once and for all. The 7 days there wasn't nearly enough. I didn't even have enough time to look into the stick bag at wwbws.
Oh well, it's only 11 and a half months to GCAM17.
I know the year isn't over yet but my mind is already set of planning a trip to Japan again next year. I'm practically in love with the place. Besides I need to avenge the disappointment of Kyoto earlier this year.
But one thing I'm pretty sure is I won't be going during the winter season. I love the cold but winter may just be a little too much for me. I remember how cold it was in Kyoto when I was there. I was practically running in heated shops just to keep warm.
I'm definitely going to go thru some Cozy Winters Reviews to make sure I find places to visit during the off winter season next year.
Time really flies. My trip to the Gold Coast Airport Marathon is only slightly more than 4 weeks away and I'm nowhere near ready for it. Embarking on a marathon training plan after a two month plus layoff due to an injury is not at all easy.
As it is, I'm struggling to get into gear at the moment. I have be careful of not inciting the injury again yet I need to be more focused on training. Quite a difficult situation really. Train too hard, chance of getting injured again is high. Train too little and chances of a good showing is improbable.
Maybe I'll just take out my les paul guitars and strum a few tunes to soothe my confused mind!
