If you need to find me in any morning in the coming future – here’s where I’ll be:
That’s right, just on my treadmill. Because it’s COLD and icy and I’m tired of slipping and sliding outside.
Oh, the treadmill isn’t all bad. I have been able to keep myself occupied by watching the whole Bridgerton series. Which, if you haven’t watched it yet, is fun and perfect treadmill watching (in my opinion). It’s fun and a full episode is just enough time for my workout.
And the plot…well, it’s great 😉
But, I digress. Here’s what the week looked like. LOTS of treadmill running, but then my new Yaktrax came and it was a balmy 17 degrees, so I was able to run outside Thursday, Friday and Saturday! It’s amazing how “warm” 17-20 degree temps feel when you’re used to something colder.
Sunday: 5.3 treadmill miles
Monday: 5.75 miles on the treadmill
Tuesday: 5.1 miles on the treadmill
Wednesday: 5.5 miles on the treadmill
Thursday: 5.16 miles outside with my new Yaktrax!
Here’s what my old Yaktrax looked like — they had wound themselves into my shoes!
And new ones:
Friday: 5 miles outside in the sun (and yes, still snow) and then 2 mile walk with the family.
Saturday: 4 mile run outside and then 2 mile walk with the family. My parents were in town and it was great to get outside with them and their dog!
Weekly mileage: 35.92 mi
Running streak days: 296
If things continue to go as planned, this time next week, I’ll be at more than 300 days!
Some questions for you:
- Are you getting used to running in the cold? I sure am!
- Have you seen Bridgeton?
