This week I was excited that most of my runs were “actual” miles instead of minutes. Started off the week and the New Year with a run on the treadmill. My gym wasn’t crowded but definitely more people than usual.
Tuesday was a rest day but I couldn’t believe that last year there were leaves on the ground!
It did warm up a little for Wednesday’s run and I actually enjoyed it! While I enjoy running along the lakefront, I also like running around Midway Airport. It is easy to get to, plenty of parking, and one loop is 4 miles. Earlier that day I made my first batch of Vegetarian Bean Chili. It wasn’t out of this word but still good. My mistake was that I added too many beans. Haha, now I know. 🙂
On Thursday it was sunny and that made the run even more pleasant. Still cold but better than negative 0 degrees.
Saturday morning I woke up cold and tired. I was supposed to meet up with a few other Oiselle girls at 10:00 for a run but decided not to go. Then I waited for it to warm up. I finally went out at 1pm. I wore 2 pairs of socks, 2 pants, 2 pairs of gloves, 3 tops, and 1 hat. The sun felt wonderful. There wasn’t a lot of wind and that definitely helped as well. At the end of my run I was tired and hungry. And then I was very cold.
Another great week of running! Sad that it is my last week of winter break. However, I enjoyed my two weeks off and am looking forward to seeing my kids tomorrow!

Link back to the host and let’s support other bloggers linking up as they train for a marathon, half marathon, or any other event.
Thankfully not as cold as you guys, but still pretty darn cold (was something ridiculous like -8 when I got up, but by the end of next week is supposed to get into the 40s. Weird!).
Some of my friends met up to run on an indoor track yesterday & breakfast afterwards. I wasn’t running til today, so nope, I just stayed at home.
It finally warmed up here! I am so excited and cannot hide it!! 🙂
You’re a rock star for getting out there to run with it as cold as its been. I’m too much of a wimp and have headed straight for the treadmill without any looking back.
Thank! It wasn’t easy and many times I questioned my sanity.
I give you so much credit for going out in the cold for a run this weekend. I chickened out and used the treadmill!
It was tough! I am trying to do as many runs as I can outside.
