Weekly Wrap: Winter Never Ends

Sunday: 40 minutes of yoga first thing in the morning and a 5.35 mile run later in the day. It was a balmy 45 degrees, and would have been awesome had it not been so windy!

Monday: 30 minutes of yoga in the morning,  a 15 minute HIIT workout and 7.28 mile run with 

3 easy, 2 medium effort and 2 hard miles and a short cooldown. It felt good to push the pace a bit.

Tuesday: 21 Day Extreme Lower Body and Upper Body Workouts.

Wednesday: 9.1 mile long run.  Since this was technically a cut back week I hadn't planned on running more than 8 miles for a long run, but the run felt so good I did a little extra,  back to COLD for this run..17 degrees with a feels like 5 temp.

More snow.. and I let Roader come with me for about three miles of the run.. he loved it.
but it wore him out.
Thursday: 24 minute HIIT workout that was ab focused

Friday: 4.2 mile run..wasn't really planning to run on this day, normally it is a work day, but it was quiet at work so I got the day off and it was also -20 with the wind chills in the morning and I decided I would keep it a cross training day.. but when I got home from grocery shopping it was so nice out.. 18 degrees and sunny (talk about feeling acclimated to winter!)  I had to sneak one in before the kids got home from school.  I didn't have a lot of time so I did a lot of speed work.
The dogs were happy I did.  Also did 21 Day Fix Extreme Cardio

Saturday: Quick run before I had to take my daughter shopping at the mall and in for her birthday party at an indoor water park.  Temp of 18 feels like 6.. felt good. I would say now that I am used to it, maybe it should just stay winter, but I am ready for shorts and tanks... at least a little bit!

Running: 31.1 miles (for being a cutback week it was high miles..but it did have an extra run day)
Strength workouts: 6
Yoga: 2

Of course the biggest news of the week was my Lil Cowgirl turning 9 on Friday.
