Some Cold Days, a Great Workout and the Pool!

on February 22, 2018

Howdy friends! How has your week been? We have had a blast of winter the past few days but we are not complaining! Nice to finally have some snow.

On Monday evening, I headed out to move some snow so the husband could get back up the driveway. It was a bit chilly…and windy. Not the best combo…but we have all the clothes.

Tuesday morning was -3 degrees. Since the neighbors are in Hawaii (not jealous or anything 😉 ) I headed over to feed the horses and birds. Our other neighbors were also gone, so I had to grab eggs out of the chicken coop. I was a frozen hot mess when I got home!

I think he liked the smells on my pants, because he just wanted to be in my lap!

Ken opted to take his fat bike to ride at lunch, so I hit up the trainer for an hour just before lunch. It had been a while since I had done anything other than soft pedal or base riding, so it was nice to hop into the tempo zone for a good part of the ride!

Someone got a new rain jacket. Bring on Spring!

Yesterday, we headed into town for the usual errands and ski lessons.

While the B played on the slopes, I headed out for a 7 mile run. It was too cold in the morning to bring Jasper (-13 degrees) so I was solo. I opted to stay on the path so I could get in an actual workout.

1 mile warm up and 2 x 2 mile efforts with a mile between and a mile cool down (though at 19 degrees, not sure how much I needed to cool down!). The efforts averaged around 7:45 min/mile. I call that a win since I was shooting for an 8 min/mile pace and the path was a mix of concrete, spongy snow and ICE. Almost went down a few times, but happily kept it upright.

Post run arm sweat. Delish. Ugh.

I am a HUGE fan of leg warmers. I pulled them up over my knees on the easy miles since it really was cold enough to feel it in the joints and then pulled them down for the efforts. Perfection. Plus, who doesnt like to act like we are back in the ’80s?!

We did a little shopping and these two cute plants came home so we could pretend that it is Spring.

By dinnertime, I was eating this out of the container. Interval days, am I right?!

Ken got home around 7 from a long day of work and travel.

This morning (after feeding all the animals), B and I hit up the pool for some play time. It was perfect. Before grabbing the most delicious donuts (because we JUST realized that we have a donut place?!). No picture because we inhaled them!

Now it is time for some cleaning and cleaning out the fireplace! Dream big!

Have a great night!
