Here's a bit of what I've been up to. :)
Super duper cold run today. Like frozen eye lashes cold. Yep. Thankfully it was short and sweet. Some sections had black ice....which is always loads of fun. ;) I was way to chilly for a selfie photo shoot when I got home so you will have to settle for my Training Peaks data page screen shot...lol.
Yet another storm was supposed to be moving in today so I was sure to be 50 shades of prepared if it did by packing my treadmill gear just in case the storm hit mid day and running outside would be less than ideal.
Naturally we headed out for Thai at lunch.
And, Thursday afternoon ended with some Physio for my "non-issue" knee, as my PT put it. :D Yes, my legs are ungodly white. Maybe shorts wasn't the best idea..lol.
The storm didn't begin until late late afternoon.....so there was no need to hit up the TM. Hallelujah! I headed out right away for my run as soon as I walked Lola. Like much earlier than I usually do. I was exhausted before I left and was slightly whiny when my plan said "Tempo" when I thought all day long that it said "easy." I'm a baby. Somehow in the sideways snow and strong head winds I managed to hit slightly below target pace. I have no idea how.
A good Tempo run is always more appreciated when you follow it with the chocolate PB protein shake. :D
Oh yeah, so I usually wear waterproof mascara....a tip a student's mom gave me once when I complained to her about how it runs when I run... you see what I did there? ;) Anyway, on Thursday I forgot that I wore normal girl mascara and after running in the sideways snow for nearly an hour I looked like this.................classy.
Yep, there was pink and red everywhere at work on Friday.....including on me. :)
A student gave me one of these........... and I may have had a spectacularly awesome cupcake as well....may have. ;)
I am learning to love how Fridays are my Rest days. Especially when I get a leg massage! If you haven't had one in a while, get one. Your legs deserve it.
How Matt and I do Valentine's day..............the right way!
Apparently we are going to get yet another storm tonight and into tomorrow. I know, this is borderline ridiculous. How dare Mother Nature interfere with my weekend running plans. Tisk tisk.
I therefore decided to pull the old schedule switch-a-roo with my weekend runs. :S I am always very hesitant to do this. So basically Saturday looked like this: 7 planned mi and Sunday had a duration run....instead of a distance run, where I had to run 1 hr 30min. Long story short, it's still Saturday and I covered 11.2 miles during my 1 hr 30 min run in fear that more snow and ice pellets would crash my long running plans for tomorrow.
Now get out there and enjoy that sunshine! And of course, thanks for checking in on GGR.
