It's always a treasure getting back outside...
Before I spill 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 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 other news:
Friday Fashion Flair. Brrr, Friday was a cold one! The wind was out of control, so I was glad to have another of my blanket wraps to keep me cozy. I'm amazed at how warm these wraps are becasue they are so light weight.
Have you seen the "old man balance" challenge? I first saw it Wednesday evening, so I gave it a go Thursday morning. Unbeknownst to me, this challenge involved BOTH putting on one's socks and shoes, while balancing on the opposite foot. The first reel I shot only had me doing the shoes (yes, another #oops). To keep in the game, I did a second reel Thursday evening, doing both the socks and shoes maneuvers, LOL. It's crazy how much tougher it was adding the socks segment to the act! Balance and mobility are two skills we shouldn't take for granted.
|both reels are on my Instagram page (HERE) if you're dying to see me in action|
So, that's it for now. I haven't looked too far ahead on the weather forecast, but it looks like the temps are trending slightly warmer, though the wind will still be a factor. Hopefully, I can take all of my runs to the streets this next week. Dear old Milly has seen more action in the past 10 days then she saw in the past 11 months. I'm grateful to have her as an option, though she is my absolute last resort.
How did your week play out? Crazy cold, or bearable? Did you see, or attempt, the "old man balance" challenge?
