It’s always in January that I start to get tired of winter. We’ve been lucky to have a mild winter so far – our average snow fall is down! – but this week, almost each morning had something that made it difficult to run outside. Between heavy snow, melting snow/thus ice, and rain, it was a less-than-ideal week for running weather-wise. I’m thankful for my treadmill. Is it too early to start a count down to spring?
Here’s what this week looked like:
Sunday: 3.28 treadmill miles and ~1 mile outdoor walk — I set an alarm, because had plans for Sunday morning – to go sledding! So I woke up and had just enough time to get in a little over 3 miles before we hit the big hill nearby. Then later in the day I got in a short walk before the kids woke up from their nap.
It was a really nice day for a walk!
Monday: 4.51 treadmill miles and ab workout — It was icy when I woke up, so I opted for the treadmill. I was able to watch some Manifest.
Tuesday: 4.3 treadmill miles and ab workout — It was cool and rainy, but luckily during the day the rain washed away all the snow! I watched more Manifest – I’m on their newest (last?) season and I only watch it on the treadmill, so it’s a nice incentive to run in the morning.
Wednesday: 4.52 OUTSIDE miles and ab workout — I was so glad to be able to run OUTSIDE. It was short lived because the next morning, it was pouring out.
Thursday: 4.75 treadmill miles and ab workout
Friday: 4 treadmill miles and ab AND mini arm workout – I woke up to snow again. As I said, I’m ready for it to be done!
Saturday: 3.16 treadmill miles. I set my alarm to get in a short run before our busy day. We started off with an early basketball game for FW, and then ballet for LM. Then, that afternoon we headed downtown for a family walk. It was COLD but not snowy so good to take a walk!
Total mileage: 27.04 mi
Questions for you:
- What do you do when it’s snowy/icy? Do you cross train? Go outside anyway?
- What’s your least favorite season?
