Sunday: Elliptical for 60 minutes and P90X3 upper body. The wind chills were just more than I wanted to take on two days in a row. I had run the day before with a -22 wind chill and it was no better on this day. I just wasn't feeling it and I knew warmer weather was coming. I also didn't think the roads had been plowed yet.
Monday: Running 6.5 miles easy -7 with the wind chill, which was a major warmup so this actually felt really good! I was also loving that there was now at least a single lane plowed through the snow to run in.
Wednesday: Long run day: 13.3 miles Didn't mean to run this far really, but had to spend a little extra time out because Roader decided to follow his nose and took off across the creek where I couldn't follow due to the deep snow and me only wearing running shoes. He came back eventually,
as he always does.
Thursday: Just a little shake out run because I couldn't resist the sunshine. Also 20 minutes of yoga in the morning before work.
Saturday: Speed work day! 800s x 8 with quarter mile cool downs and a half mile warm up and cool down. The 35 degrees was amazing to run in and I now finally feel climatized for winter!
Running 30.8 miles
And Roader wanted to introduce to you Whiskey Pete. Whiskey Pete likes to lay by Roader's heat vent, box his ears, and lay in the laps that Roader wants to. They are actually becoming pretty good friends.
