|Looking out my front door on Wednesday morning at 4:30am- it was snowing|
|Looking out my front door Thursday morning at 5:15am- freezing rain was |
falling and everything had an ice glaze!

Thursday morning was by far the worst- I looked out the window at 5:15am and everything looked like it was coated in melted marshmallows. There was freezing rain coming down and it was hitting the snow and just smoothing everything out. I attempted to get the car ready to drive but the layers of ice were so thick I just decided to walk to work. It was very slippery but only took about 10 minutes, much faster than waiting for the car to deice!
|Walking to work at 6am on Thursday morning. I walked in the road- it was sanded |
and not as slippery as the sidewalks. It's about 1/2 mile or so.
Finally, on Friday I had a day off from work so the kids and I headed out for a walk so I could take some photo's of this wild weather. Everything was literally coated in a thick layer of ice- it was one of the craziest things I have ever seen. The temperature was slowly warming up and there was a light rain falling so every once in a while we would hear a "crack" and ice would come crashing to the ground from trees and power lines.
|Taking a little walk. The roads were a total mess.|
|The kids were having fun knocking all of the ice off of the branches.|
|All that ice on a single blade of grass!|
So here is what my workouts have looked like this week:
7 mile speedwork run on the treadmill (snow on ground)
Snowball fight and playing in the snow. The video below is of my crazy dog.
6 mile tempo run on the treadmill (tons of snow)
P90X2- Ab Ripper
*intention to do Total Body on Thursday
Completely exhausted from work, decide to rest instead.
I did "snow shoe" to work- does that count?
6 mile run in the slush and snow and rain (I will do a seperate post for this one!)
*intention to do yoga after the run, skipped it because I was tired
*Soccer was canceled due to road conditions
Saturday (feeling guilty for skipping so many workouts):
P90X2- Total Body
My intention is to do P90X2- Balance and Power after work tomorrow, then I will have officially done all of my workouts for the week! Might even do Recovery and Mobility if I get ambitious.
So, the workouts were all mixed up but the good news is that I managed to squeeze them all in!!

Are you on Daily Mile? If so, we should be friends! One of my goals this year is to leave more comments on blogs I follow and also for my friends on Daily Mile. I know that I love when others do this for me and I am terrible at returning the favor. But I am making an effort to be more supportive and encouraging. Many times it is because I am on my phone instead of the computer, but I will make it work.
And finally, here is a music video that I think is pretty cool. Click on it and tell me what you think:
