Too Warm for January, but We Will Take Advantage of it!

on January 30, 2018

Okay, can we just talk about the fact that February is literally right around the corner? What happened to January? Wasn’t it just December?!

The weather is NOT helping. It felt like April today. It was 40+ degrees and the sun was shining and it was HOT.

But, let’s rewind…. This morning started off at 2 am. Yep, read that right. The moon was SO bright last night that when I woke up in the middle of the night, I legit thought that we had overslept. It took me looking at the clock to realize that I had a few more hours to snooze.

The alarm went off at 5:30 and it was a strugglefest to get my butt out of bed. Should have just gotten up at 2 😉 We eventually made it down to the trainers. It was around 42 degrees down in the basement, so I was happy I opted for long socks for my 45 minutes of easy spinning.

Smartwool for the win!


After breakfast, Brooke decided that she wanted to style my hair. It took quite a while for me to undo this mess. I was pretty sure that I would be shaving it off. Thankfully, I managed to get all the “decorations” out.


Around 10, I headed out for a 4 mile easy run. I needed to drop something in the mailbox and killed two birds with one stone! It was already quite warm and I was overdressed. Jasper was panting?!


Post-run and lunch, we all headed back outside for some sunny goodness. Brooke had a blast playing in the water from the snow run-off.


I took advantage of the warm day to load up the wood on the porch.


I started in ski pants and a jacket and ended up in yoga pants and a tank top. Seriously, though!?


After we had our fill of play time and chore time, Brooke insisted that I go check the mail. I did a quick wardrobe change and took my fat bike down to the mailboxes. Naturally, there was a box (thanks, Mom) that I had to precariously ride with on the way back to the house. Ice and slush and one handed riding. It is a miracle that I made it home in one piece. Pretty sure it increased my skill game about 900%.

The box absolutely made Brooke’s day. It included a shirt and a bathing suit and a doll from her current favorite show, Vampirina. The joys of having Grandparents that are currently working with Disney Studios.

She somehow ended up in her new suit and insisted that we try it out in the hot tub. I was happy to oblige. My legs were pretty thrashed!


She spent the afternoon playing with her new doll and then we cleaned up the house and made dinner before Dad got home!

We will take any day that we get to spend hours outside in January. Tomorrow is supposed to be warm as well and then we are hopefully going to see a bit of snow by the end of the week. Time to mix some cross country skiing in to the workout schedule!

Not sure what today holds just yet! We hope to get outside and enjoy the sun if it decides to come out again.

Any fun Tuesday plans for you? Big workouts? Rest days?
