Another Wintry Weekend

Happy Monday (and Presidents’ Day)!

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend! We spent another 2 hours shoveling out on Sunday after getting another foot or so of snow dumped on us. I feel like a bit of a broken record talking about all this snow, but it’s just incredible.

2 Generations Running. Winter Snow.As you can see, the snow is almost covering our light post in the front yard. And in the other picture, my parents are braving our roof to get the snow off. How’d they get back down? They jumped in the snow of course! I have a funny video of it on my Instagram if you’d like to see 🙂

Before the snow set in on Saturday afternoon, my mom and I decided to go for our own little Valentine’s Day 5k.

It was a balmy 17 degrees so we bundled up in fleece running pants, layers of long-sleeved shirts topped with heavy sweatshirts. I had so many layers on, I could barely get my GPS watch to fit around my wrist. Don’t ya just love winter running?

Once we got going, it felt good to be outdoors, despite the slushy streets and frigid temps. I was pleased my knee cooperated (for the most part). It’s definitely not 100%, but I think I still need to give myself a few weeks of stretching and strengthening exercises before I expect it to feel perfect.

We ended up running a little over a 5k, finishing up after 3 and a half miles. It was a relatively slow pace, but I’ll take it.

After all the digging out was finished, Sunday was spent relaxing, catching up on some blog reading, watching Game of Thrones episodes, and of course, watching The Bachelor in the evening. 🙂 Overall, a pretty solid weekend!

Did you do anything fun this weekend? Are you as sick of winter running as I am?

  1. I don’t think I could be more sick of winter running if I tried. Good for you for getting out there in it! I can’t imagine running with that much snow around! Seriously…your house is going to disappear soon. I hope this next storm spares you guys!

  2. Wow you guys have a lot of snow! Sadly in Alaska it’s too warm for snow and we just have rain 😦 I miss snow running! It’s too dangerous to run now because everything is icy since the rain freezes on the ground. I think both you and me are ready for spring and non-slippery ground!
