So I decided to finally register for the Hypo Half on one of the snow days. :D Who knows what conditions will be for the run!
Wednesday's run was a super snowy one. I had to pull on the Yak Trax for grip and I ran a crazy hilly snowy route. Looks like hill training is coming along but I guess my speed workouts will have to wait. Sigh.
Thursday gave us snow day #2 for the week. To be frank, it was more like an ice day since we had some mild air and rain move in followed by ice pellets and then later snow. I checked out the streets and decided there was far too much ice to venture out so the treadmill it was for a 7 mile progressive run.
Hot hot hot hot hot. Did I mention how hot it was????
Reminder to self: Always sport a braid when running inside and wearing a tank. Sweaty hair on the back does not feel good...lol.
|I LOVE getting Lulu gift cards! Check out this cool tank I got from a Christmas one!|
When I got home my new sneakers were here. :D Yes this is my third pair of pink Nimbus 16s. Unfortunately with wide feet you can only get the one girly colour for now. At least they're pretty. :)
This song by Lana Del Ray is where it's at right now on my playlist. I repeated it over and over on the treadmill and on every other run this week. I know it's not new, but I LOVE it.
Running on the crazy hot TM and shovelling sure works up an appetite. I'm loving chicken fajitas with mango salsa these days! Try it out....you'll love it. :D
Friday was a rest day AND another SNOW DAY! What?!?!? Roads were deplorable so I was thankful there wasn't a run scheduled, (virtual fist pump).
Of course with another snow day comes more shovelling and ice removal. Plus I picked up this super cute cabinet which required some manoeuvring and lifting between Sam, Matt and I....lol.
|The PLL Halloween Train show is on TV in case you're wondering...lol.|
My Saturday run sucked...lol. Roads were still a nightmare so I had to use my yak trax AGAIN. Plus I overdressed so it felt like I was melting only a mile in and with the traction in the snow it felt like a beach run, only not as beachy. You get what I mean right? LOL.
I've been stressed a bit lately about how sluggish my pace is in all this snow and ice. I'm seeing super fast runs on Instagram from people who are also going to Boston and it's really freaking me out. :( I'm afraid I'm going to be super slow compared to everyone else even though I'm running with a hard effort. I actually can't believe how hard the effort is! For instance I told Matt that my 7 miler this morning felt like a 15 miler at the end. I would love to hear your thoughts on this!!!
Oh, and someone had a haircut! Clearly they're not too thrilled about it either...lol.
Come on Winter, I have 14 miles to do tomorrow. Please oh please ease up on the snow!
Winter running vs. Speed thoughts???
Are you doing the HYPO 1/2?
