Let me start by saying, "Brrrrr!"
Yep, it was a cold week in the sunshine state. For the record, we didn't see much sunshine, but we certainly had plenty of wind to cherish.
In the grand scheme of things, it wasn't totally miserable. After all, the temps back home, in Iowa, were much colder. It's all about perspective. So what if the water - in my half-full glass - had turned to ice?
Before I share some of the frigid 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 8:00AM (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 in my little (frozen) world of fitness:
In case you missed out, here's what went down on the blog:
In other news:
Friday Fashion Flair. Instead of showcasing Friday's less-than-impressive travel outfit, I featured a favorite from the recent holiday season. As much as I love the contrast of red and black, swapping in grey really makes the bright red pop. And we all know I'm a fan of puffer vests. I'm also a bit obsessed with handknit infinity scarves.
As mentioned, a big highlight of last weekend was having our oldest daughter visiting for a few days.
And, because our vehicle simply wasn't full enough (LOL), we swung by the daughter's place (on the final stretch back to our house) and brought her two dogs home with us for an overnighter. I mean, why not?
So, that's a wrap on my final week in the "sunshine" state. Although the weather wasn't the greatest, by Florida standards, it did give me a taste of re-accliamtion to the even colder temps awaiting me back in Iowa.
How did your week play out? Crazy cold temps? Any obnoxious wind to battle? Weekend racing?
