A Snowy Week

on December 5, 2022

Last week was a snowy one! Over the course of a couple of days, we ended up with close to 2 feet of snow. While it made for some gorgeous landscapes, it was a crazy couple days for those who had to be on the roads-and those who were getting the ski resort ready to open <But they couldn’t complain too much, because no one is made about fresh powder for opening day!

With all of the snow, I opted to switch out a couple of my workouts for skate skiing. I have a fairly good relationship with the treadmill, but want to keep it special for those really terrible days or real workouts πŸ˜‰ Plus, it is really nice to enjoy some cross training with all the run miles!

The conditions were a bit tough for both of my skiing expeditions πŸ˜‰ Lots of fresh snow makes things quite a bit harder and quite a bit slower, but some good efforts!

Ken and I ended up going out to do a set of tires in the midst of the storm. It was a little bit crazy with the trailer, but Ken made sure to keep us out of trouble.

It was so thick, we lost the lake. If that doesn’t scream “cold”, I dont know what does!

No biggie…cars were off the roads all over the place.

Was the perfect day to work outside πŸ˜‰

And then there was the calm after the storm! Absolutely breathtaking!

The weather pushed me inside for a few of the workouts. Not going to lie, the 13 miles on Sunday was a bit much. Luckily, Ken rode the trainer for an hour so he provided company and then I turned on the Hunger Games and that made the second part fly right by!

On Sunday, we headed up to the mountain for a few runs! It was Brooke’s and my first day of the season, so we took it pretty easy. A lot of skiing in our winter plans! Happy to be about 15 minutes from the slopes-that makes it pretty convenient πŸ™‚

Hoping that you have some fun things coming up this week! Brooke and I are taking a little trip. And it involves warmer temps and non-snow covered roads πŸ˜‰ Running shorts weather?!
