Brian thought he'd give my physio visit a little 'fancy hotel feel' by placing a block of fudge on my pillow...you know, like those hotels that leave the mint on the pillow, lol. Hey, it keeps me coming back. ;)
Monday's run was chilly but felt great, especially since Sunday's run took place on the dreadmill!
After work I stopped by to see Sam. You need to send her some speedy recovery vibes since she's nursing a broken foot. But I am confident she will heal and recover in time for some marathon miles before the Summer. ;)
How did I end up leaving with cookies?! lol.
Tuesday's run was super COLD! I ran a rolling hill route and after about 2 miles I was good and warmed up. Sidenote: when I pull my balaclava down below my chin because I'm warm, I feel super squished and double-chinney...hence why I'm pulling it out for my runfie...lol.
As I ran on Wednesday evening, I could barely see since it was snowing very lightly but I had to squint the entire time...lol. Footing was still very good and I love how some people still keep their Christmas lights up ................................................................................including me. :D
I like to call this one "I have an idea!" LOL
|P.S. I'm LOVIN' the new headlamp!|
Oh dear god, hill repeats! Very very cold hill repeats. Oddly enough, the three body parts that were the coldest were my elbows?!, below my belly button?! and of course my butt, lol. Since these super chill temps have arrived I've been whipping out the big guns....
Yes, it makes me look all shiny on the run, but you know what, the Shea butter Vaseline smells super good! Plus, it really helps block the biting wind for those winter runs. I load it onto my face and neck....and lips. ;)
This was a rest day but if I took down my Christmas tree, went to Costco and cleaned like a machine, does that count? Lol. My Christmas tree only had lights and ribbons on it for about a week...lol. I just didn't want the warm Christmas light feel to go. #loser
When I am working my runs are often in the dark...womp womp. This makes me appreciate running in daylight that much more! AND, it was sunny!
|The sidewalks were finally runnable! Yes I'm deciding that's a word. ;)|
|This SPI belt I bought for the Boston Marathon last year is probably my best investment ever...all $20 bucks of it. Running Room sells them and you must get one!|
Almost home....super pretty. :)
I'm heading out for my long run now. I should be good and fuelled up since Matt and I had an old favourite for take-out dinner last night:
|and the obvious. :D|
Have a stellar Sunday everyone and thanks for stopping by!
Do you get sad to take down Christmas?
What tricks do you use for running in the cold? Mine are layers and Vaseline! Oh, and Smart Wool socks. ;)
