We got our first “snow” during my morning run!! 8 miles. (I know to a lot of you this is humorous, but I still get excited!)
After my run I took an Orange Theory Fitness class. It’s such a fun way to cross train!
While I was out running errands, I discovered Toe Warmers! How have I never seen these? I haven’t tried them yet. I wonder if they work while running or if they just get in the way?
For dinner, I heated some Tortilla Soup that I froze a few weeks ago.
And prepped for Tuesday Track…
I knew it would be cold and it was!
I know it’s a cold one when I bust out the Wrightsock Double Layer Socks! I wrote about them on my 10 Cold Weather Running Tips and Fave Gear List.
I wondered if anyone would show up, and thankfully Michael, Corrie, Shyla, and Alex were crazy enough to do speed work with me!!!
5 mile warm-up

1 mile cool down
It was such a tough workout for me today. I was working really hard and my legs just didn’t want to turnover. Maybe it was from the cold weather. At least I got out there, but it definitely didn’t help my confidence.
Last week, I wrote about my new favorite Hot Apple Cider Tea.
Well now, I’ve stepped it up and added some Mulling Spices. IT IS SOOOO GOOD!
I was called out by @live.laugh.love.run to #stopdropandselfie on Instagram. I still haven’t mastered this selfie thing.
For dinner, I made a kitchen sink salad…
and a chocolate Shakeology shake! (I made it with dark chocolate almond milk and ice. It’s SO good!) Also, I’ve gone over a full week without my beloved vegan chocolate chip cookies!!
Must Read from Zelle: Jenn Thompson, an ultra-runner, was bitten twice by a prairie rattlesnake while running leaving her fighting for her life. I’ve been following her story for a while now and I am in awe of her determination to run again.
Have you done the PiYO workouts? Thoughts?
What’s your healthy alternative for your sweet tooth?
What’s your favorite cold weather dinner? Right now, I’m craving grilled cheese and tomato soup!
