Snow day = gym day!

This week as been soo cold.  The coldest it has been than more than 2 years.  So needless to say I have not been dying to run outside when the weather is in the single digits.  And considering that it was in the 60's last week these single digit days feel even worse!  So cold that I didn't run at run club!  And that doesn't happen all of the time.  I did go to hang out and chat to friends, but I didn't run.  Way to cold.  
This morning as a nice little surprise I woke up to text messages galore this morning!  And was I glad to have a 5:30 am wake up call for a snow day!  The first snow day of 2013!  I love snow days!!  I think I like them more than the kids do.  We didn't get much, but it really doesn't take much to have a snow day in Northern VA.  It was a bit icy and maybe 1 to 2 on the ground.  So all in all I think it was a good call.  95 had accident after accident (people can not drive in weather here).  So with my free time I got to sleep in and then I did some work with the medicine ball this morning while watching the Today Show.  Yeah I know how to rock a snow day.  After that I decided that I was going to head to the gym and do something..probably run.  It was a bit tricky getting out of my development.  My wheels were spinning but I made it.  The main roads were fine.  So once I made it to the main roads I had no issues.  

Once I made it to the gym I did four mile intervals which I am pretty happy with.  Then to end out my time at the gym I always enjoy reading while biking.  I am reading Defending Jacob right now.  Pretty good book. Hopefully I will keep going back to the gym so I can finish my book.  I figure if I have to get in a bike session in order to read, that might work out in my favor.

I love snow days! Next time you should try to run in the snow! It's a ton of fun, and a way different workout for the legs.

We didn't really get much snow, but the ice was pretty nasty under the dusting..
