Winter is far from over here in Northeast Ohio. After getting 15+ inches a few weeks ago, we were hit again with more snow storms Sunday and Monday. I had planned for getting in a nice outdoor run for my birthday (which was Sunday), but when I woke up it was snowing pretty heavily so I opted to go on the treadmill. It ended up also snowing Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Not a lot of snow – an inch or so each time, but each of those inches adds up and with that much snow, I haven’t run outside in I can’t recall how long.
The week included some indoor workouts, thanks to the cold and snow and ice:
Sunday: 5 treadmill miles + 2ish mile snowy walk + abs for my birthday workout 🙂
Monday: 4.06 treadmill miles
Tuesday: 5 treadmill miles + a snowy walk + abs
This girl doesn’t mind the old and snow, most of the time!
Wednesday: 5 treadmill miles
Thursday: 4.6 treadmill miles
Friday: 4.75 treadmill miles + some kettlebells
Saturday: REST DAY! I went for a walk and still managed to get in my step goal (11,000 steps) without a run.
Total mileage: 28.44 miles
Where I spent most of my week
I’m realllllly getting tired of the weather, but I am glad I have gotten in my treadmill workouts each day. Plus, I’m keeping up my goal of doing something besides running most weeks. Even if it’s planks, additional ab workouts or even a few kettlebells, it’s better than nothing!
Questions for you:
- What’s your least favorite season for running?
- How do you fit in activities besides running into your schedule? By the time I get off the treadmill in the morning, it’s usually time to get showered and get my kids up for school.
