So I thought 2013 went by really fast....it appears that 2014 is on the same track! Sadly the weather seems stuck in January, though. It's still super-cold (although I think I'm getting a little loony...22 felt warm), and it snowed on Saturday and it's supposed to snow again tomorrow/Wednesday.
I had a wonderful run through the snow yesterday on the trails at Fabyan East with some of my awesome running friends. Pat L. is so great at scheduling winter trail runs, and I really wanted to get out for some fresh air. Luckily Chad agreed to take the kids to church, so I was able to meet up with the crew.
I only did about 2.7 miles, but it felt like at least double that with running through several inches of snow at times. And my hip/hamstring have confirmed that today! I was sore after sitting at work, so decided to take tonight off from working out. I'm happy with the five days I got in last week, but I'm going to have to start running a lot more....those half marathons I want to do won't run themselves!
On a weight note - only down 0.4 lbs, but as Chad said it's down instead of up. I did indulge in a couple of cookies last night at a Super Bowl party, but the rest of the week went really well food-wise. Gotta love being a woman ;-). I'm planning on 4-5 days of workouts, and want to hopefully get out for at least three decent runs. Let's hope the snowstorms stay away!
