The last day I posted was Saturday, when I had an encouraging run. Sunday I took the day off. Then Monday morning, I ran with two friends (and Baby J, of course). We did two laps together, which is 5.4 miles. Most of that was jogging, but we did walk a little bit…perhaps a mile. After my friends left, I did another lap…mostly jogging, but some walk/sprint intervals. I wanted to change it up a bit for once! So it was a total of 7.2 miles.
Today, Tuesday, I planned to workout at a Navy gym. One of the local bases has a family workout room in one of the gyms. I haven’t checked it out yet, but I heard they have a sort of gated area, where you can stick your kid, with treadmills, bikes, and weights next to it.
Turns out a friend treated me to a movie (and some delicious theater popcorn)! Her husband watched our kids while we were gone. I can’t remember the last time I saw a movie in the theaters! Between the 2.5 hour long “Catching Fire,” nap time, and baby sitting this morning, there wasn’t time to make it to the gym.
There’s snow on the ground right now! First time this year. If it’s still cold tomorrow (and it’s supposed to be), I’ll have to make some indoor plans. If the bases aren’t closed (two inches of snow freaks everyone out around here), I’ll head over the gym there. Another option is to meet a friend at the YMCA. I get one free day and childcare, as a guest. Might cash it in tomorrow!
I’m upping my winter miles challenge this week from 10 to 20 miles. I think I can do it!
