For someone that doesn’t like to be flexible with my training, this winter is sure forcing it on me.

We all had our hopes up high because the night before, the weather apps said there was only a 10% chance of snow, so we were ready to do our workout, but it definitely snowed.

It is really nice to have your coach at your workouts because then they truly see that a workout in this weather was not a good idea and how to adjust accordingly. We had 6 mile repeats on the schedule, which I was very excited about, but it was so slippery, and there was no way it would happen for us.

Ten miles @ 8:14 pace outside.
The weirdest part of our run was that we could smell chicken noodle soup STRONGLY in different areas every few miles. We could not figure out why but it made us all crave soup.
I then took it to the treadmill, and my coach told me to do 200s (aka my weakness). So I did 4 miles of 200m fast, 200m easy. I didn’t enjoy it in the slightest because I just wanted to be outside running fast with my friends, but I did it, and these two songs helped me a lot… the beats are awesome.
I came home to see a neighbor plowing our driveway. People are the best.
And this for breakfast. So so good.

 We were able to get up to the ski resort in the afternoon.

Andrew’s mustache was frozen.
It’s okay to feel two emotions about things, right? In the morning I was SO done with snow and then in the afternoon all of the fresh powder was amazing.
It was a bit too cold for Beck so he napped and then hung out with my parents.

 Knox was gone the first night we had this Thai Coconut Curry Ramen so when we had it for leftovers, he was in heaven. I want to make more today.

Have a favorite running song right now with a fast beat?

Ever split up a run between outdoors and indoors? When was your last treadmill run?

Anything else I need to add to my avocado toast?

Something nice that somebody has done for you recently?

(jacket, pants, shoes) I think that Utah is plotting against my Boston training. Every morning we wake up to a new layer (sometimes a lot, sometimes a little) of snow. So how in the world are we supposed to do speed today?! Six miles @ 8:13 pace. All of this winter training will make running … Continue Reading

(leggings, long sleeve, coat, shoes) Yep, I’m ready to be done running on snow.  Seven miles @ 8:50 pace with some hills in the first half. I miss our trails so much and will savor them so much this summer. I jumped on the bike for a 20-minute class to finish my workout with a … Continue Reading

(shoes, shorts, vest, shirt) It wasn’t supposed to snow, but it did, so I brought a variety of shoes to choose from when I got to our meeting location. I decided to wear my favorite speed shoes because it wasn’t too slick out (just on one of the downhills, so I slowed down there), and … Continue Reading

(pants, bra, earwarmer, vest ((on sale, I wear this vest all of the time)) top) 8 miles @ 8:38 average. Plus a walk with my sister to get sun in our eyeballs. Just a normal day. I love these from Costco. Went to BYU indoor track… To watch my nephew compete in the 2 mile. … Continue Reading

(Shorts, bra, half-zip, shoes) I guess I like Thursday speed workouts because this one felt surprisingly great!  It was nice to be outside and not worry about slipping on ice too. Opening gels with frozen fingers is rough; I was reminded of that yesterday.  I had a few graham crackers and a gel before the … Continue Reading

Wednesdays are our speed days, and there was no way we were going to attempt speed on this new light dusting of snow, so we are pushing speed to today. I couldn’t get myself to do speed on the indoor track or treadmill (so dramatic… I have only had to do one of each this … Continue Reading
