Last week was COLD. And by COLD I mean negative degrees as the HIGH. Check out this forecast:
So what did that mean for my training for the Cleveland Half Marathon? It meant that my treadmill was my best friend. Here’s how the week looked:
Sunday I kicked off the week with my longest treadmill run in at least a year. 5.25 miles.
The Sole F80 has become my best friend over the past year or so. As much as I don’t enjoy indoor running, I’m so grateful to have it!
And FW was happy when I was done with my 5 miles.
Later in the week I woke up to THIS as the temps. Feels like -23? Yeah, I wasn’t going to go outside.
So, each day when I could, I got in a treadmill run.
School ended up being closed Wednesday and Thursday due to the cold, so that threw off my running a little bit. Wednesday, I only got in 2 miles while LM took a nap, and Thursday I also had to cut my run short when LM work up early.
But that was it for the week – and we survived! I’m hopeful that it will get and stay warmer for at least a few days. I mean, the groundhog DID see his shadow so that means spring is coming, right?
