I sure didn’t dress properly for the weather yesterday!
When I left my house to meet my friends it was 40 degrees and it was just sprinkling… I was even planning on wearing shorts but changed my mind last second to wearing some thin pants instead.
With each mile of our run it started raining harder and harder and then at about mile 4 it was a complete blizzard. AKA we were soaking from the rain and then it got really cold from the snow/wind. It was cold during the run but when I sat down in the car afterwards I started shivering like crazy and had to sit there with the heater on for a while before driving because I was so cold.
I am SO glad I wore a hat. I would have called an Uber to pick me up if I hadn’t worn one and had those huge snowflakes hitting me in the eyes while running.
The water fountain that has the most refreshing water (I swear it is straight from the very top of the mountain) that never ever turns off… this fountain has saved me on hundreds of runs!
I was planning to get in my tempo miles yesterday but that plan definitely did not happen:
I ran with two of my friends and was reminded quickly how much I love running with them. Josse is running pain-free again so I’m sure we will get together more now and my other friend just did a 2:47 marathon so hopefully I can join her on her easy easy easy days;)
10 miles @ 8:42 average and those tempo miles will happen today on the treadmill instead.
I got home and took the hottest shower ever and then got back in bed with a hot chocolate for a few minutes.
We had a few appointments in the morning but canceled those because it kept snowing and snowing and there was no way I was going to drive in those conditions.
When my sister and I were younger we would draw our dream houses and they included an underground tunnel from one house to the other.
Maybe our childhood dreams will come true:
Because we were stuck inside for a lot of the day we got some things done including putting away the laundry… Skye was a great helper.
We played a lot.
We made some hamburgers (the picture was not pretty) for lunch along with some sides… And then once it stopped snowing and the roads were plowed we went to the gymnastics gym with my sister and her family.
Brooke has nailed her vault sprint.
We did our normal crockpot chicken for chicken salads and sweet potato fries from TJs.
I wanted to include this question from a reader in it’s own post so we could talk a bit more about it in the comments! *How do you help your kids, especially Brooke, develop a healthy relationship with food?
