Finally starting to feel a little more normal this week! After my races and then a whole week off from running I was feeling off and having a bit of trouble getting back into the swing of things. I’m getting there though!! This week certainly looked more like a normal running week for me and for that I am extremely grateful! 😊 I feel like starting another holiday run streak has really helped! It’s definitely given me the motivation to get out the door and run, and the more I run the more normal I feel! 😁
- 2 snowy, icy, slushy miles
- 25 minutes yoga
So we had a legit blizzard on Sunday. Like for real! It was insane! And guess who ran during it! That’s right, this girl! 😂 Oh man, that was probably insanely dangerous as we were experiencing white out conditions, but it was also a lot of fun!!
Anyway, on Monday the sun was shining but there was still quite a lot of snow, ice, and slush on the ground. I know a lot of people hate it when the roads look like this, but I have soooo much fun running in this kinda stuff! Winter running is my favorite. Even if it does involve some slipping and sliding. ❄️⛄️🏃🏻♀️
- 3 miles
- 20 minutes strength work
Another snowy run! Yay!!
Well, kinda. The roads were mostly clear on Tuesday, but there were still some really icy spots. Most of them were short enough for me to dodge, but some of them were longer and required slow, deliberate tiptoeing over. Hahaha that’s what’s fun about running on ice and snow. It really makes you have to focus and think about where your feet are going. One misstep and you could end up on the ground. Luckily I’ve always been really good at picking out good footing in the ice and snow. At this point I I’ve never lost my footing enough to actually fall, which is pretty impressive considering how big of a klutz I am. 😂
Anyway, followed my run with some lower body strength work! I’m definitely getting back into the swing of things and it feels good!!
- 2 miles
I just like winter running. Winter running is my favorite. ❄️😊
You guys, the snow is still sticking around! It started getting all mushy and melty Wednesday afternoon. Still though, I’ve been enjoying it. 😁
- 1 mile
- 20 minutes on the stationary bike
- 10 minutes ab work
Nice and easy 1 mile just to keep my run streak going. Followed that up with 29 minutes on my stationary bike and then 10 minutes of ab work, just for fun. Also broke out my all time favorite Christmas Zensah compression socks! ‘It’s the season!! 🦌❤️💚
- 2.57 miles
Friday’s Run was supposed to be easy but it sure didn’t feel that way. Running is like that sometimes. But I was still smiling because running is a gift. Even on days when it feels hard.
- 4 miles
4 fantastic miles to kick off the new month!!
Getting back into a more regular running routine has been a bit of a challenge, but Saturday’s run was the best if felt on a run in a LONG time! 😄😄😄 I think I’m finally ready to start doing some real work again now!!
- 1 mile
Just one easy mile to keep the streak alive! Nothin’ fancy, but it did feel really good!!
Alrighty! I’ve been not-so-patiently been waiting for this week to get over so I can start using my new Believe Training Journal! I mean, I could have started using it the day I got it, but I thought it made more sense to start it on the first Monday of a month! I’m dreaming big for 2019 and I think this journal will be a fantastic tool to help me make shit happen! I. Am. Stoked!!
Happy Sunday! Wishing you a fantastic new month!!
