Weekly Workouts!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...


I ran a lot this week. 6 days. And I'm running a half marathon this morning! You know what that means, right? Less running next week for sure!

My shoulder continues to feel better. I am going to lift "light" weights this coming week again, just to be safe.

Saturday- 8 neighborhood miles. I don't know why I randomly decided to do 8 but it felt great!

Sunday- Lifting upper body @ home. I was supposed to run trail in the morning with a friend, but I bailed because I got terrible sleep. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do or even if I wanted to workout. I was sort of in a funk. No sleep can do that to you. I eventually decided to lift upper body and I was glad I did. I finally incorporated pull ups back into my workout and my shoulder felt great. Sometimes my shoulder feels weird on shoulder press if I don't have the right form. And my 4th and 5th fingers go numb when I do row. Other than that... I have felt fine doing light weights.

Monday- 6 warm morning miles. No sleep again? No problem. I'm freaking running. The good part about waking up at 1:17am was that I had plenty of time to make a hardy breakfast.

Tuesday- 6 morning miles. I had some great podcasts to listen to. As soon as I stepped outside, I could just feel the snow in the air. It wasn't actually snowing, but I could tell it was going to.

Wednesday- 6 miles miles in several inches of snow. Boy did we get a lot of snow Tuesday evening and all day Wednesday. For some reason, I felt adventurous and I went out for a snowy run. It was quite difficult because I opted to run through the areas that were not plowed so I wouldn't slip. I also did two rounds of snow shoveling and made a snowman, which I am counting as part of my workout.

Thursday- 6 morning miles. Two hour delay day! It was quite icy in my neighborhood this morning- a lot more slippy than yesterday when I was running through several inches of snow. I ran over to a neighborhood I know is always clear and ran loops. By the time I got back to my hood, the sun had melted a lot of the ice and the roads were in much better condition. I did have to make some yellow snow though...

Friday- 6 morning miles. Slowwwww. That was the theme of this week. 

How were your workouts this week?
Do you like running in snow? (As long as it's not slippy.)


  1. I've never run in snow... I've run when snow was on the ground, but melting. I think if I lived somewhere with snow I'd hibernate all winter. Good luck with the half marathon and I hope the weather is good for it (no snow).

    Your eggs look so delicious... I love good eggs! Especially runny eggs :).

    1. Do ya all call them runny eggs down there in SC? We call them dippy eggs. :)

      Nah I think you would run in snow! It's so beautiful!

      The half marathon... oh my... definitely the most interesting "race" I have run. Lots of snow.

  2. I'll run in a light snow but if it gets too heavy it worries me. Not only am I scared of slipping but I am afraid of the cars slipping and not being able to stop before hitting me!

  3. I didn't know you were running a half marathon today (or maybe I forgot). I hope it went well!

    I actually like snowy runs but I did not do any of them this year. But I guess I didn't do a lot of outside running in general this year but I am going to remedy that hopefully this week!

    1. I didn't really tell anyone I was running it because I was just doing it "for fun". Hopefully the weather will be nice for you this week!

  4. I saw on your Facebook that the trail half was weird.... I can't wait to hear more about it. I read on River Runners that somebody was threaten by a man in the neighborhood... and there was talk of a gun.

    What shoes did you use to run the in the snow?

    1. Yup... I commented in River Runners too! It was nuts! Race Report Tuesday. I wore my trail shoes.
