Monday – 30 minute easy run (9:09 pace)
It was -2 degrees (felt like -20 with the wind chill) so all day I was planning to go to the gym. But as the day went on, and I got less motivated, going to the gym felt like a lot of work. Plus, part of my day got eaten up with having to deal with getting a car loan (woo!)
Tuesday – 30 minute easy run (9:40 pace)
We got to my husband’s grandma’s house around noon and because I got kind of a late start, I didn’t get a run in before we left. So I brought my running gear with me. After lunch, I bundled up and headed out. I was glad that I thought to bring my yaktrax along because the footing was pretty terrible and sidewalks would just randomly end so I ran on the street most of the time.
Wednesday – REST DAY
Coach had an optional 30 minute easy run here but after rolling my ankle the day before and the nerve-wracking travel, I decided to take the rest day.
Thursday – 30 minutes indoor trainer
Passed the time with “The Ladies of SNL” special on TV.
Friday – REST DAY
Another long day of travel (this time back to my hometown) so I embraced the rest day that Coach gave me.
Saturday — 45 minute easy run (9:20 pace)
Hit up my high school fitness center to get 4.81 miles in on the treadmill. The fitness center has holiday hours right now — I was bummed because I wanted to sleep in, but got up to get in the run before it closed at 9 a.m. My mom walked on the treadmill while I ran and then we got ready and picked up my dad and the hubs for some breakfast.
Then we went to pick up…my NEW CAR! It’s not a brand new car but it’s the newest car I’ve ever had.
I’m so excited and it was definitely time for an upgrade. Now just have to sell my (old) car and we’ll be all set!
I’m definitely looking forward to the holidays being over so I can get back into a normal fitness routine. But it was kind of fun deciding how I was going to get my workouts in this past week with all of the travel. This week’s workouts will start easing me into some speed work — exciting!
How were your workouts during this past holiday week?
How cold does it have to get before you boycott outdoor runs? (Minnesota is supposed to get to 48 below with windchill this week. No outside running for me.)
