Fabulous Friday!

This week has been hectic to say the least. I am so glad that it is Friday!

Tuesday I hit the gym in the morning for a nice little stair climber workout! I pumped out 30 minutes on that thing and my legs were feeling it! Then I decided to do some weight lifting! After work I met up with some girls for a spin class! My legs were hating me and Wednesday I woke up really sore!

I finally got outside for a run yesterday. I left work a little bit early and hit the road around 4pm. I went into the local neighborhoods and just cruised around. It was a very enjoyable 5.4 miles which was exactly what I needed! We have been pelted with snow since the new year and yesterday was the first day that it DIDN'T snow! It is hard getting outside for a run because it is either blizzarding out or the sidewalks are all covered with slush or snow.

For the weekend I have some fun plans! Brian and I are meeting up with some friends to go snow shoeing! I will be sure to post pictures of this fun adventure! Last year I went snow shoeing with my dog and you can check out that post HERE!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend and GOOD LUCK to all the racers!!

Snow shoeing sounds fun! When it isn't so freakishly cold here, I want to do some cross country skiing.

It has been well over a month since I ran outside. I am such a wimp when it comes to the cold. If it's colder than 20F I don't run... I need to get over that because I HATE treadmill running!

Have a great weekend!
