I wouldn’t be a runner if I didn’t bring up the weather from last week’s workouts. While New Hampshire didn’t have it as cold as the Midwest, it was c.o.l.d. And now this week will feel like March.
The roller coaster continues.

I did do some mobility work and stretching because my butt was SORE from Tuesday’s workout.

I dusted off my treadmill and hit the basement running. With a temp of -6 and a real feel of -16 I said NO THANK YOU to running outside. The first 5 minutes felt like 5 miles but once I got into my 90s R&B on Pandora, it was all good. There’s just something about Tupac, Keith Sweat, L.L. Cool J and Blackstreet that brings back my high school and college years. Awww, memories.

Re-united and it feels so good! It’s been about 2 weeks since Kyle and I ran together. I missed her! It was nice to catch up but even better because we got to run in daylight hours. Woohoo!
I woke up Saturday morning to another day of frigid temps. I had zero interest in running. I thought maybe I’d head out later in the day once it warmed up a bit but the interest was still not there. I didn’t feel the need to force it so another rest day it was.
Snowboard day! With the kids in ski club and Ron chaperoning, I had an hour to board by myself. Why is it that every time I get on a lift with strangers they are either Vaping or have boogers hanging out of their nose that I can’t stop staring at while they are chatting away with me. I have mirrored goggles on so you’d think they’d see it flapping in and out. I wish I would have had a tissue to pass over. So gross!
How was your week in workouts?
Linking up with Hoho and Wendy for the weekly workout wrap up.
