Friday night was really laid back. My sister and I ichatted while catching up on Scandal and HTGAWM <--don't want anyone finding my blog by typing in the full name haha! I started Lickety Split by Mary Kay Andrews (written as Kathy Hogan Trocheck--her name before she became Mary Kay!) as my "book by a favorite author" category on my reading challenge. To be honest, I'm really glad I didn't read this one first! The books she writes now are fun, girly, and total beach reads (a new one comes out in May! I can't wait!) and this one is nothing like it! While it's been a quick read, it's not exactly my kind of book.
Saturday morning I woke up fully intending to go to my group run. After looking at the temperature and impending snow, my coffee and pancakes were looking better and better. I opted for a treadmill run later and was really glad I did! It started snowing a lot earlier than predicted and the roads in my neighborhood were a mess. My walk to the gym was probably more of a workout than the actual run because of all the snow! Can't tell you guys how thankful I am that I bought my boots earlier this year. Seriously guys, they are the best ever!
Sunday was the day to tackle my long run. Even though it was a lot warmer, my side walks were still super slushy and I wanted to stay on the safe side. I opted for the treadmill once again and it ended up being a fantastic run. I even ran a little further than I had set out to because I switched treadmills after my favorite one freed up about two minutes into my run. I wanted to see those double digits and figured 10.5 was better than 10.2. I'm actually a little surprised with how not bored I was this week on my treadmill long runs. I think the combination of music and Wait...Wait...Don't Tell Me! helped. It probably doesn't hurt that Shamrock is getting closer and I'm thinking a PR is more doable than I had originally thought! My brother and sister included me on a massive group text as well, and it's really hard to be bored when you have constant alerts going off. Thanks, guys! :-)
|I felt great this whole run! Can't wait for Shamrock!|
Maddux and I got in a short walk Sunday afternoon (he wasn't a fan of getting his paws wet) and then I made it out of the house for a Petsmart and Target run. All in all, a great weekend!

Maddux's face was too good to not share!
Tell me something good about your weekend! Any other treadmill warriors out there? Stay warm and have a great week!
