Monday: usually Mondays are a bit of a drag fitness wise, but not this Monday. I got my weights in and then headed outside for 4.25 miles. I've been keeping my mileage low and was only planning on 3ish miles but once I got there my body called for an extra one. I don't believe that I've ever run outside on the Winter Solstice before (unless by coincidence if it's been on Saturday), and now I think it's going to need to be a tradition for me. We're "over the hump" in terms of the darkness, now we just need to get winter out of here.
Tuesday: I craftily sneaked an outdoor run between sunrise and an early morning meeting, and by craftily, I mean that I joined the call the second that I stopped my Garmin. 5.25 miles and even though it was windy and my body was bit draggy, I would happily have gone another mile if time had been unlimited. The meeting went way over schedule, keeping me stuck in sweaty running clothes and being chilled to the bone, but it was totally worth it (the run, not the meeting).
Wednesday: I hit the weights, and by rights it should have been a rest day from running but the weather was way too nice and I felt way too good. I hit it for 3.25 miles with alternating 0.1 fast/0.1 slow in the 2nd mile.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday...the rest of my fitness week was "a much of a muchness". We had a white Christmas which was lovely but not compatible with outdoor running. I ran 3 miles each day on the treadmill, and on the one hand, thank goodness it's an option, but on the other hand...ugh! My treadmill mojo continues to by MIA. Got the weights in on Friday as planned.
Whatever the weather gives me to work with. Either I'll be outside racking up the miles or inside working on my treadmill 'tude.
