|I can be creative if I want to...lol.|
My first big event of the weekend was a physio appointment literally at the time that school let out. My foot is feeling so much better so of course I left PT and headed straight to the gym. I have to admit that I've now gained a fear of running outside in the snow and ice since the fall and ankle roll. I'm really hoping this diminishes.....soon. I also made the decision to hit up the treadmill since my PT wanted me to try a test run on a flat surface. And let's face it, that was NOT happening outside! LOL.
|notice how my feet turn in when I lay down? Well apparently most people's turn out and this makes me pre-disposed to ankle rolling..... dem da breaks. ;)|
Yes I look like crap, but I just ran 5 pain-free miles and it was glorious!
|anyone else get mega hair horns when working out??? LOL|
Hello treadmill my good friend...of course that's sarcasm. I was still too scared of the super high snow banks/ice to head outside, sniff sniff. While I ran on the TM I wondered to myself, am I really running? Can I actually count this as a run? I've always read that the TM obviously isn't the same as running outside, but I wonder how much it really counts. I see so many bloggers and IG friends logging miles regularly on the TM and they're pretty fast, so it can't be bad, right?

Hmm, how can someone be this talented????
Note to self: You may look like a pig if you head straight to a shower post 7 mile run.
Well, the streets were ice rinks and lakes today in my hood, womp womp. And on my training plan: 16 easy miles...yeah right! I knew running outside today would mean I'd crossed the line into insanity, so I debated driving to the gym until just after noonish. Until then I occupied my time making these:
Kudos to Kelly for passing along the Coconut joy! ;)
And then I made pasta salad, just because.
And finally, I ventured in to the Canada Games Centre for some track & tread...because that's just how I roll, lol.
4 track miles...
+ 5 TM miles makes 9 sweaty indoor miles for one day.
Lola says 'Hey' and thanks for stopping by the GGR blog. :) Have a wonderful evening.
P.S. I'm running the Hypothermic Half Marathon next weekend! How did that creep up so quickly? Are you running it????
