Kind of like me. Still battling that on again off again low grade temp. I’m not sick enough to not work out, and not quite feeling good enough to work out as much as normal. There’s the horrible crud that’s been making the rounds that lasts for weeks, and thankfully mine is not that bad.
I’m joining up with the Weekly Wrap from Holly @ Hohoruns and Tricia @ Misssipppiddlin (ok, it’s just Holly now — unless she has a new cohost), but I just decided to leave Tricia in there. We all appreciate your work so much, ladies!

After so many rest days, I was definitely itching for a little movement. We’d had 6 inches of the white stuff the previous day, but Mr. Judy took care of that with the snow blower.
Still, messy and cold, I took it to the treadmill. I also increased my run interval to 2.5 minutes, but decreased the pace a little.
Still on the treadmill and still working on some endurance, I again slowed the pace just a little but increased my run interval to 3 1/2 minutes. Even just an easy 3 miles seemed to take a long time.
Yup, still on the treadmill. I watched the first two episodes of “13 Reasons Why” — can’t say as it grabbed me the way it seems to have a lot of people, but then again, it got me through 6 miles on the treadmill..
Favorites of the week
There wasn’t a whole lot of anything going on this week. The bomb cyclone bombed (in that we only got 4 inches, thankfully, which isn’t much in these parts). Yes, it got really, really cold, but the good news is I was able to hunker down at home for most of it and we never lost power.
I thought I would try to begin highlighting a few of my favorite blogs from the week here (in case you missed them):
- Burpees, Planks, & Pushups Challenge
- 6 Tips for Planning the Perfect Running Year
- Look, Listen and Feel
- How to Overcome Workout Procrastination
- 5 Easy Resolutions for a Healthier 2018
I am also enjoying the freedom from training — at the moment, anyway. I’m getting at some things in the house that have been on the back burner a long, long time. I had actually hoped to be running more mileage at this point, just for base building, but it is what it is. I’m happy that I’ve still been able to get in some runs.
I’ve been working on goals for 2019 and some other healthy behaviors I’d like to make habits. Would you believe I’ve finally done some Epsom soaks? Twice? More on that in Tuesday’s post, which is all about healthy goals you might consider for 2018. All bets are off when I get into serious training, no doubt, but for now, I have the time, and hopefully I can make some new habits.
And that’s a wrap!
Let’s get the conversation started:
Made your 2018 goals — do share!?
Did you get dumped on or was the bomb cyclone a bomb in your area, too?
Are you a skier & look forward to snow?
