Yeah, this past week was rather frigid.
We're talking sub-ZERO temps, most days, in Iowa. The snow continued to fall, the wind kept blowing and the streets remained a near-hazard. Thankfully, as we neared the weekend, things were finally (after two solid weeks of polar vortex conditions) on the upswing.
Before I share the details, welcome to the Weekly Run Down!
I love hosting this link-up with Deborah (from Confessions of a Mother Runner)! If you write a fitness-based blog, you're invited to join the party. The link-up opens at 1:00 (EST) on Sundays and remains open through noon on Monday. We love reading about everyone's weekly fitness endeavors, training highlights (or low lights) and race recaps. We ask that you link back to both hosts, and we encourage you to read/comment on the other linked blogs as well...please don't link-drop & dash ;-)
Anyways, here's what went down this week:
Despite the crazy cold, I did my best to persevere through the week. Running saw 15 miles, with 10 of those outside! I've been keeping consistent with walking (almost) everyday (especially on my non-running days)...8 miles done this week. Elliptical had nine miles of action and biking had 35 miles. Also, 40 flights of stairs (as part of my warm-up before my runs).
Saturday's Zoom ride with some fellow blogging gals was another fun endeavor. It was 40 fast and furious minutes of pedaling and chatting with Darlene, Debbie, and Coco. We even had Max join us for a quick photo bomb.
So, that's my week, all wrapped up and tied with a (frosty) bow.
How are things in your world? Did you get extreme temps and/or weather conditions? Have you been able to get outside, or have you been opting inside?
