After the previous week’s bout with insomnia, I finally got back to sleeping normally about halfway through last week. Catching up on sleep/energy meant that I did little more than I had to last week, and by 6 pm I was pretty much like this for rest of the night:
The weather seemed to finally remember that it’s supposed to be winter last week, with snow at both the beginning and end of the week. But a gross, slushy thaw in the middle of the week, because we can’t just enjoy the season we’re in I guess.
On the workout front, last week I ran on all 3 of my workout days. Getting crazy over here. However, I’ll probably stick with running on 2 gym and 2 non-gym days in the future, as this schedule involved running 3 days in a row and one of my knees was a little cranky about that. Oh, and I did 15 minutes of yoga this week…which was 15 minutes more than the last few weeks.
On Monday I did some treadmill intervals. Wednesday I split up my run and gym workout so Kara could run with me.
Friday I ran hills on the treadmill. And Thursday was my long-ish run of the week, as well as a demonstration of why I prefer in-town trail running over roads in winter. Let these pictures explain:
Ice. (And shorts, because 45 degrees…)
Trail. Notice the lack of ice and slush.
And Sunday we went hiking. Kara says, “finally”.
What’s your preferred winter running surface?
