We woke up to a light dusting on the ground this morning and then continued to watch the snow fall all day. Schools are already closed for tomorrow and it's safe to say most of Eugene is now considering it the weekend. Fine by me.
As I've mentioned before, folks to the east of us probably think we're crazy, but we don't have the snow plows or as much experience driving in this stuff. Schools (other than the university) are often closed down if we get even an inch of snow for the everyone's safety. I even slid a few times on my drive home in the Subaru!
After making my way home, I finally got back into the workout mode after four days of inactivity. And oh, did it feel good.
On a side note, I did find it weird that yesterday my muscles randomly felt sore after doing nothing, but trying to ditch this sinus infection! I'm not going to lie, I wanted to workout, but I'm glad I just let the body do its job and didn't test my limits.
I played it safe and didn't go running outside or anything, but I stayed inside for a nice strength and tabata session with my good friend Gina. ;) I also added on her latest booty burner and a five minute ab combo to the end.

This week's winter shape up workout was a little less cardio heavy than last week's, but has a lot of good strength moves in it. I'm guessing my booty will be a little sore in two days.
A note on my top: I recently bought the indigo flyte tank and the Lesley run tights from Oiselle and love them both. I also own the long sleeve version of this tank in grey. I pretty much want to live in all things flyte.
This is all just a little PSA to say that if something makes you happy, sometimes it's worth the splurge. Hands down, my quality, well fitting, attractive workout clothes get used more than the cheap thing I found for well... cheap. Eventually, I get down to the bottom of my workout drawer and use everything, but certain pieces make me happier than others. File this under: another reason while I don't yet own a quality handbag.
Oh, I also wanted to tell you guys that I met my friend Katie for coffee this morning to chat about her new venture. She is opening her own practice to do talk therapy combined with exercise! It sounds really exciting and is something that no one else is really doing.
