FINALLY- I got in a run outside!! After only one other run off the treadmill since 2014 started, I was interested to see how this run would go! It was tough, and my legs felt incredibly heavy the entire time. This mixed with there still being icy spots on the road (lots of weaving and time spent walking over the ice), and it was obviously not my best run by any means. That hardly mattered, though, as I finally got the chance to actually run outside. The temperature when I left was a “feels like” temp of 0, and I definitely had a few moments where I really felt cold. Didn’t matter- I was on real pavement:)

That was quickly followed by an ice/snow storm on Monday, which messed up my workouts on Monday/Tuesday (I would normally lift monday and teach pilates Tuesday morning- neither happened). My grandpa died on Monday night, and that 10 mile bike ride was fueled totally by emotion. I switched things up, and had a pretty good week. Here’s what it looked like:

  • Saturday (2/15): 5.25 mile run
  • Sunday: 1 hour pilates
  • Monday: 10 mile bike ride
  • Tuesday: 1.65 mile walk in the sunshine
  • Wednesday:18.75 mile bike ride
  • Thursday: 30 minutes pilates
  • Friday: REST

So that’s how the week looked.

Now it’s your turn to share! Did anything big happen in your week?
