|A pic of the Sundogs from last Sunday...aren't they beautiful?|
The weather this past week, in Iowa, has given us some extreme conditions.
|It's been so cold, even Max has been bundled up for his walks|
|The mid-week temps were nice...and the sunshine made it fun to be outside|
|By Thursday, the temps approached the 50's! How about a "gloves optional" run on my lunch break? I'm there!|
Something I did in 2015, and am doing it again in 2016, is (1) not going more than two days without running and (2) never missing a Monday. The Monday thing has been going well, but it's been a little tricky planning out the weekly runs and avoiding the less-than-desirable weather. The temps were forecasted to plummet by Friday, and continue to fall over the weekend. And that they did.
Having run on Thursday, I wouldn't necessarily "need" to run until Sunday...but Sunday was supposed to be the coldest day yet (a predicted "high" of -6 degrees), so I went out on Saturday morning for a quick mile. That quick mile actually felt pretty good considering the single-digit temps Momma N had thrown at me.
|Brrrr! A quick run, followed by a Warrior-3 pose (in victory of getting outside)|
|Doing intervals (treadmill and stairs) took me less than 40 minutes, and felt great!|
|Another pic that got a lot of attention was the one of me in Frog Position|
So, that's a quick synopsis of the latest and (not so) greatest weather in Iowa. What do you do to cope with frigidly cold temps? Do you suck it up and get outside (like me, most days), or do you find other things to do inside?
