I got a much-needed week off of work this week! I was looking forward to running lots of miles, getting a lot done and having a relaxing week. Of course, we were blessed in Northeast Ohio with beautiful freezing temperatures and lots of snow. I only really ventured outside to run and go to the store.
Monday: Rest. I went to a 75 minute hot yoga class. I just felt off the entire class.
Tuesday: 5 miles. Tuesday was probably the coldest day of the entire week. When I got up, the wind chill was well below 0 and I tried to run on the treadmill, but I mentally couldn’t get myself to go any farther than a half mile. So I bundled up and headed outside.
Wednesday: a.m. run: 6 miles/p.m. run: 4 miles. Ran early Wednesday and more snow made it considerably harder than the cold the day before. At night, I ran with Second Sole for what I’ll consider my speed work for the week.
Thursday: 5 miles. More cold, more wind.
Friday: Rest/60 minutes of yoga.
Saturday: 11 miles of trails. Felt like 20 miles with all of the snow.
Sunday: 10 miles of trails. Also felt like 20 miles.
Total: 41 miles.
