1. I went for a New Year's Day run with my little sister. It was 27 degrees when I left my house but outside it was a windy bitch of a day and it was cold! I was glad we were running from my parents house which is at a lower elevation and usually a lot less windy.
We ran 6 miles and after the first half mile I was plenty warm even with running into the wind. A great way to start a new year, running and good conversation.
2. Cola has also been getting to have a running buddy. My Dad's dog Roscoe has been coming along with Jessica and I. Him and Cola run around like crazy and I think they get in twice as many miles as we do.
3. I also did ZWOW #49 before I ran Tuesday. It was a killer. 120 total burpees! I have to admit I am still sore from it, in the best possible way of course. I love that sore muscle feeling.
120 burpeess....I don't think I can get through 20 way to rock it.ReplyDelete
120 burpees?! That is impressive. I would still be sore too!ReplyDelete
I am glad that Cola has a running buddy right now. Too bad you can't track their miles too.
120 burpees?! You rock :) .ReplyDelete
Holy cow. That is so, so cold, and so, SO many burpees!ReplyDelete
So glad Cola has a running dog buddy:) I will have to check out ZWOW. Looks like a killer workout!ReplyDelete
That sounds like my run yesterday! SO COLD! Glad you had tons of running buddies :)ReplyDelete
I think I'm sore from reading about the burpees. Reminds me of the time that the personal trainer put me through all that. You'll be the better for it though! You're right, a good kinda sore! I was happy to get back to blogging and see Cola! My favorite blog dog!ReplyDelete
Did you have to do all those burpees at once or were they in sets? Either way....man.....ReplyDelete
I'm actually loving this cold-weather running, but I wish I had a dog to go with me, too.
Oh my.. that hurts just thinking about it! 120 burpees. I hate them soooo much.ReplyDelete
Love that Cola has a running buddy too!
Bet you are so happy that your sister is still close by.
That workout is insane! You are a rockstar!ReplyDelete
I love cola and new running Roscoe friend :) nice that you get to run with your sis! I miss mine. She's away. Oh and it's been far too long since I've tackled a ZWOW and I'm missing them....so is my body. Colin just said - you'd better do some zwows ;P lolReplyDelete
Ugh, burpees make me sick and lightheaded. Doing 10 is like a chore for me so congrats on making it through that workout!ReplyDelete
It's been freezing here, and my threshold (as recently discovered) is 30 degrees. Below that (and/or with a lot of wind), I'm running on the dreadmill. :-)ReplyDelete
We rang in New Year's by skiing with the kiddos!
120 burpees???? Ouch!! You and your sister are too cute!ReplyDelete
120 burpees is awesome!ReplyDelete
Love that the dogs are having so much fun and that they love the cold too. Happy New Year!
Awesome work!!! My gosh I didn't run today because it was 47 and rainy! You just made me feel guilty!! Haha!ReplyDelete
Does Cola enjoy having an extra dog to run along with you guys? It's going to be awhile before my sister and I get to run together. She's going to have the baby sometime in the next few weeks.ReplyDelete
