Well! It's still cold, -40 with the windchill. I'm tired of this quite frankly and I should probably be making a gratitude list to remind me of all the things I'm thankful for but instead I'm going to wallow in my own self pity for the rest of the day!
So, I got to head out of town for a quick overnight date with my hubby last night! These are becoming few and far between and my kids are taking over my life!!!! Not complaining because I LOVE it but it was so awesome to pretend I was childless for a night! (I also pretended I was 21 and I hope there are no pictures on the web to prove this). Joe also let his hair down a bit (kind of ironic since he shaves his head) which I haven't seen lately because he is always working or traveling in a different direction than me! We had an amazing dinner and evening and while you crazy people were running Disney this morning, I was laying under 3 down comforters sleeping it off! (Truthfully, we weren't very wild and didn't even make it up until midnight!)
Ryan had a game this afternoon and they won again. No, I do not take pictures of my kids during their games but I do take pictures of this (hard to see but at least 3 inches of crack showing) Seriously, I am a 12 year old kid trapped in an old lady's body!
After my hill workout on Wednesday (which totally sucked-d*mn leg weights), I had planned to head outside for a recovery 5 or so on Thursday. For all of you who give me the nice compliments for being hardcore in this cold weather you can have them back. I made it exactly 1.2 miles outside before I quit. The temperature said -5 below but apparently the SW wind made for a windchill of over -30 below and it was dangerously cold! I came inside and hit the treadmill again for exactly 8.8 miles slowly since I am very anal and wanted to have a nice neat even number for my daily mileage!
Yesterday before I headed out of town I hit the fitness center again and was planning for 8 miles but did 10 @ 7:57. I also threw in another weight workout and I'm perfectly content to sit on my butt and do nothing at all today. ( I should add that I ate like it was my last meal last night and definitely consumed more calories than I burnt off) Tomorrow, I will do my long run. Temps are supposed to be doable outside but we might get another snow pounding!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend all!
