Baby, it's not just cold outside, it's ridiculously frigid.
Even by Iowa standards, the past week was downright brutal. We're talking single digits temps on the daily, as well as double-digit mph wind. That just means the feels-like was sub-ZERO on the daily as well. Thankfully, there wasn't any new snow or ice, so I'll give Momma N kudos for that.
How did my fitness fare? I'm glad you asked...
But before I spill it on 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 in my little corner of the frozen world:
In other news:
Friday Fashion Flair! Did you know Friday was Wear Red Day? It's a day to raise awareness about heart disease and promote the importance of heart health. Being it was another day with sub-ZERO temps, I was glad to have my buffalo plaid scarf wrap to keep me cozy.
Even with the bitter cold, the sunrises never disappoint. It's just a bummer I have to enjoy their beauty from the inside of my car on the drive to work. Oh well...the daylight hours are significantly longer now than when we left for Florida, so that's all well and good. It won't be too much longer until I start seeing a little more glimpse of daylight during my early-morning outings.
That's it for me...How about you?
Was the weather especially unforgiving for you, too? Or did you have a few mellow days sprinkled into the mix? Did you wear red on Friday?
