I woke up early to go to the bathroom and could tell it was "glowing" outside our windows. Sure enough, I peeked out and saw this blanket of whiteness everywhere!
As I've mentioned before, it's crazy rare that we get snow (especially of this magnitude - about 4 inches now) so the roads aren't cleared quickly and people don't know how to drive in the stuff.
Alas, I couldn't miss out on the chance to run in the snow. I just love it. Plus, my "plan" called for an easy 6 miler. After returning to the house once for my big snow gloves and another coat, I was good to go.
It was definitely a challenge to run in this stuff, especially because i was paving my own path along the sidewalks, but my Montrail shoes worked great!
I finished 5.3 miles with a smile on my face (and probably got a few crazy looks from drivers) just in time to take Jonah Bell out for her morning jog/walk in the snow. She loved frolicking in the stuff.
A snow day calls for jeans, a wool sweater and my rain boots - I've got to purchase some snow boots one of these days.
Work is closed until early afternoon so I'm happily sipping tea from the couch and contemplating a nap. The manfriend however, was at work at 8 am. The streets were a bit challenging to drive in, but nothing my little Corolla couldn't handle. ;)
What's Cookin' Wednesday
Last night's dinner was perfect after a cold and wet tempo run for her and a miserable bike ride for him. Tuna melts + salad!
And the best brownies for dessert!
Do you plan meals based around workouts or times you know you'll need/want comfort food? Anything exciting on your meal plan for the week?
