We may have “sprung forward”, and spring is technically just around the corner, but that doesn’t always mean much up here in upstate NY. It was a very cold week until the weekend, and then there was snow and sleet this morning.
We do have a warming trend coming up next week. It’s definitely a tease, because the lows can still be quite chilly. Not quite time to break out the skirts yet!

I’m not into #nevermissamonday at all, but I did get after it with a short recovery run on the treadmill. We got about 5 more inches of snow overnight. Nothing exciting (not always a bad thing).
Today actually would have been another good day to run outdoors. It wasn’t windy and it wasn’t really that bad temperature wise, I found out when we walked the dogs. It was another short run and I don’t really regret doing it on the treadmill.
I took a cue from Kim @ Runningontheflyand increased my pace a smidge each 800 meters (she does 400s, but I’m not training for anything). Still enjoying short runs.
“Warmed up” with some grocery shopping, then hit the park for 5 miles. A lot of back & forth because while about 90% of the paths are clear, there are lots of large icy patches still. Still on the cool side but bright sunshine so it was a nice day to run & a nice strong run.
I was off to my parents for my mom’s pre-birthday celebration — her actual birthday is today but we were graced with more snow & ice. I didn’t have much time before I left so it was 2 easy progressive miles on the mill; I increased the pace a tiny bit from Tuesday’s easy progressive run.
Favorites of the week
I helped my mom celebrate her 91st birthday yesterday — how many people get to say that? And my brother, my sister, and one of my nieces were there, too. In 2 weeks we help my Dad celebrate his 93rd.
My brother lives on the West Coast, so we don’t see that often. He does come more often this days since his daughter is working and living in NYC, and just because my parents are so elderly.
On the flip side, I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to on Friday because the pipes backed up during my shower (not actually in my shower, thankfully), so I had to help move all the stuff out of the downstairs shower (which Mr. Judy uses for storage). Fun times. This is the first house we’ve ever had that problem with — and this is the second time it’s happened. Apparently only when I shower, as both times it happened while I was showering.
Talk to me:
Who did you celebrate for International Woman’s Day?
Are you still running through Winter?
Bothered by the time change?
