I will probably be crying and complaining about the cold for a while now – it has REALLY set in. There is a big likelihood that I will be wimping out the the gym off and on…no shame! I don’t mind the cold…but the FREEZE YOUR EVERYTHING IN 2 SECONDS cold is a little harder to step out into…
weekly workouts : week 5 (dec 25)
I took Monday off in stellar fashion…even though I felt guilty about missing my run on Sunday…
Tuesday- 4 miles
The snooze button was the winner of the morning – enough so that I was nearly late to work – darn snow! I *quickly* packed up my workout bag with lots of layers to HOPEFULLY go out for my run…but I couldn’t fine my YakTraks…trail shoes it is!
Wednesday- 4 miles
Rather than hitting the trail (which I planned), I ran an errand…literally, ran : ) It was a brisk day, but warmer than yesterday! Win!
6 miles 2 miles
I wanted to get out this morning…but it didn’t happen (THIS needs to change!!). Since I don’t want to run hard enough to get in a couple miles before picking up little man for the day…I got in what trail miles I could.
2 miles 16 miles
Another week of moving my long run to Friday. Today, I am not going to work due to a family funeral and family major time the rest of the day. I am not sure why moving my long run to the treadmill is an easy option, but I have really “enjoyed” using the treadmill for longer runs = no frozen water bottles (or butts…let’s be real).
16 miles 5 + 5 miles
Holy smokes, it is COLD outside! I made it halfway through my run before making that turn towards home… I felt bad at first – “I should have been able to gut that one out!” – but then I was just ready for it to be over. Good thing I have friends who have little boys and a treadmill – so little man and I went over to Michelle’s house for a little while – the boys played, we chatted, and the miles were finished : )
10 miles OFF
While I wanted to get out and run my last few miles for the year, I stayed in bed, stayed warm, and spent the day with little man : ) Wouldn’t have had it any other way!
Weekly Miles : 37 miles
Training Miles : 180 miles
2212 / 2,017 in 2017

That is awesome mileage for 2017! And, I’m so impressed by you ladies who run in the super, duper cold. I’ve enjoyed running in the twenties here recently but that’s nothing compared to what you are dealing. Plus, we have no snow. Happy New Year and thanks for linking!
Great job on getting out there! It’s even colder this week! I tried to run but both runs were absolutely miserable 😦
The cold can be brutal!
