Nice of you to show up finally. You were only a few weeks late. Please don't get too comfortable. Spring is coming in March and you will need to be gone by then.
Yeah, so winter finally showed up with all the snow and cold those of us in northern climes expect. To top it off this is my busiest time at work. It has been a struggle figuring out my routine to get my runs in between working, eating, sleeping, shoveling snow and spending time with my family.
A quick review of January so far:
Week 1 - Ran just over 40 miles. Weather was decent. More autumn-like than wintery.
Week 2 - Ran 41 miles. Weather was OK. Started to turn wintery towards the end of the week.
Week 3 (so far) - Winter hit us full blast. Miles were down due to stormy weather and busy work schedule. Decided this would be a good time for a cutback week.
We finally have enough snow to break out the snow shoes and we're going to do that this weekend. I hope the kids enjoy it. I know as a kid I always thought it was fun to feel like I was floating on top of the snow. It's fun, easy, good exercise and will teach the kids that just because it's winter it doesn't mean we are trapped in the house.
