From Balaclavas to Bare Arms

After a cold windy freeze my fingers off run on Saturday I was so happy for a blue sky sunny day Sunday.  From double layers and a balaclava on Saturday to this..

You bet I was loving it!   Weather is pretty much going to be my motivation again today.  The cold is coming back on Thursday and I intend to get in a nice long trail run today before it does.

Yesterday was so beautiful we decided we really couldn't waste it and took the kids out for an afternoon hike.

Lil Cowboy found a rope and had been lost in the hills and used it to try to rope me.

We found this cool tree stump where two trees had grown together. I thought it so neat.

My son took a look at it and declared "It is interesting what you find interesting."

The kids and Cola agreed it was a great day for a hike.

The plan this week is pretty simple..

  • Monday...trail run and a HIIT
  • day.. maybe yoga
  • Wednesday... easy shorter trail run and a HIIT
  • Thursday.. Run Turkey Run 5k
  • Friday.. easy run depending on how I feel
  • Satrday.. run and HIIT
  • Sunday.. run and yoga
I love this lack of training plan thing.  I just go run based on what I feel like for the day for the most part.  I do plan in a longer run between 8-10 miles and an easier type run.

Due to my birthday this week Thanksgiving I only have to work one day this week.  Don't I feel spoiled!  Yay!

Soon, like December soon, I will be back on a training plan for a half marathon in March.


  1. So I assume I'll be going into short sleeves again? Whew, it's been cold. And that foot of snow...

  2. The temps here have been so up and down too! Today is freezing but yesterday I was in a tank and capris...who knows!

  3. What a beautiful day! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  4. Beautiful day! Looks like you all had a blast.


Because I love hearing from you all!
