It did NOT feel like January here this week. The middle of the week (Monday through Friday) was relatively mild, no snow and well, pretty perfect winter running weather! I can’t say the same for yesterday – we got a few inches of snow and then ice / rain mix all day so this week isn’t off to the best start – but last week was great for running!
Here’s a look at how the week panned out:
Some highlights/more info about the runs:
Monday started with a 10K before work. It was an early day, because B was traveling for work and I had to get in a run before he hit the road.
Tuesday was another earrrrrly morning. I ended up waking up at 3 a.m. and for various reasons, didn’t go back to sleep. Instead, I finally went outside and got in an earlllly run. This meant that I had met my step goal by 6 a.m.! (I try to aim for 11,000)
Speaking of step goals, I made my step goal all week except for Saturday.
I had planned on a rest day for Saturday, and with the snow and ice, plus some things that popped up unexpectedly, didn’t make it out for a run. I’m hoping that taking a day off will give me some fresh legs this week, but we’ll see.
Some questions for you:
- Do you run outside in the snow/ice? When do you decide to stay inside?
- Do you set a step goal for yourself? What is it?
