With a mild start to the week, the winter chill set in FAST! Wasn’t I wearing shorts out on the run just last week?! Oh well…I feel like I am going to wimp out some this winter and head to the gym a few days a week. I didn’t get much of a cold build up, just BAM! COLD! We’ll see how it goes…
weekly workouts : week 4 (dec 18)
OFF 2 miles
After an exciting Gingermas Run Hunt last Saturday, I needed to shake out my legs. So I went for a quick 2 mile runch.
Tuesday- 2 miles
While yesterday’s run in the 50s was “warm” but today’s 50s was “cold”…funny how that happens. Good thing I made it happen today…bring on the cold, because then the spring will be here sooner : )
4 miles 3.55 miles
Well…this run almost didn’t happen! Well, it would have happened either way, but I had so many things come up every time I tried to leave…then I left and got ABOUT halfway in my route when I realized that I requested to get off work an hour early for little man’s daycare holiday party (shoot!). So I had to double back so i could finished what was left of my shorter work day… Oh well. Here’s to winter finally settling in for a little while (maybe…).
Some days, the time just doesn't stand still for anything. Today was one of those days… Every time I would try to leave for lunch, I would blink and it would be 30 minutes later – sheesh! While busy days help the time pass fast, I feel like I get hardly anything accomplished. Good thing I got in a short run before realizing that I needed to get back to finish my workday! @aftershokz #shokzsquad @weavrun #weavrun @brooksrunning #gotoshoe #thankyourunning @bibrave #bibchat @buff_usa #buffusa
Well, I didn’t get up and get out like I wanted to this morning. I need a new routine of how to get around in the morning…help!!
Anyway, I was able to get out for an interval lunch run…not quite the miles I needed, but some good effort paces with the help of my WeavRun app!
"If it were easy, everyone would do it" -someone other than me • Days like today make this SOOOO true! A lazy start to the day (no run or gym), busy day at work (making up tasks for missing work tomorrow), questionable weather (not raining, but wet and misty), and an interval run on the schedule…well, it wasn't easy in the least! Good thing my @AfterShokz know how to keep me moving and grooving – because that was tough! #shokzsquad #bibchat @momentumjewelry #strongereveryday @garminfitness #beatyesterday
2 miles 14 miles
Since I didn’t have daycare for little man today, I got to stay home with him. And since I didn’t have to be at work at 8am, I decided to hit the gym early…EARLY early. I planned to change up my long run to today (from tomorrow) and run my shorter long run with the group).
Check out that STEADY heart rate ❤ • Went to the gym this morning for long run no.1 this week – 14 miles on the treadmill was made easier with my @aftershokz and some great @runsteepgethigh videos ❤ (I secretly want someone to film me while I run a beautiful race – so I can look back and see the beauty – rather than my feet) 😂 #shokzsquad @bibrave #bibchat @buff_usa #buffusa @garminfitness #beatyesterday @momentumjewelry #strongereveryday @rungum #runsquad @zensah @brooksrunning @tailwindnutrition #gotailwind
14 miles 6 miles
Due to changing things up, I planned on running my 8-miler today…but it was so damn cold! We have had “warm weather” all “winter”…so today’s 15 degree feel wasn’t welcoming! I gathered with the group and we accomplished what we could – and I wimped out with 6 (rather than 8).
8 miles OFF
I had wanted to make up my missed miles from the other morning + the “old” Friday miles…but it just didn’t happen. I slept in and spent the day with family. Merry Christmas Eve!
