Workout Wednesday #25

Good morning friends!! 

Happy "My 2nd Favorite Day of the Week" aka Wednesday. I know I've explained it a zillion times, but I love Wednesday because it means we're halfway through the week. And, as we all know, I'm only working for the weekend!!

Speaking of work, yesterday a couple of my co-workers and I decided to pool our money and buy lottery tickets. The MegaMillions jackpot was $344 million. We each kicked in $5 so we had 15 chances. I haven't checked our numbers yet to see if we won, but I'm sure that we did. So, I'll be retiring from work soon and will have more money than sense!!  LOL

Last night, after work, I met a few running friends on the Riverside Trail in Tulsa. The trails are pretty clear but there were some slick spots were the snow had melted then refroze. We got in 5 miles in a little under an hour. It was a good run! I was scheduled to do a Fartlek run, basically sprinkle in bursts of speed during my regular run. And that's what we tried to do! We ran from ice patch to ice patch and had to walk over some of the slick spots, so it was pretty much a fartlek run. Of course we had to stop for a photo op at the 41st street plaza.
I'm supposed to do a "negative split" run today. I don't have time after work, so I'm going to try to get to the gym at noon and do it on the dreadmill.....yuck!! I'm really tired of Mother Nature's BS!  It's really jacking up my marathon training!!
I don't know about you, but I find it hard to stay motivated to workout when it's cold and icy/snowy outside. I have to find workouts that I can do at home with little or no equipment to help keep me on track. I've got a new circuit that I'll be trying tonight after getting all my errands done. I call it my "it's cold and I don't wanna workout, but I've got to move my lazy butt" workout!! Check it and let me know what you think.
Ok, until next time........
How do you stay motivated to run/work out in the winter?

  1. Keeping track of my daily step count helps keep me motivated to keep moving in the winter, but it's hard!
