From Sun to Snow

Good afternoon everyone!

I had a great workout this morning when I finally sauntered off to the gym.

I was so excited to use my new HRM and sneakers!

I am loving the soft chest strap feature of the Polar F7f.


Here is the lo-down of my workout:

  • 2 min. walking warm-up on treadmill for 2 mins. (4.0 mph, incline 5)
  • Running between 5.5 and 6.0 mph, incline 5
  • 5 mins walking incline 5-11, 4.0 mph
  • 5 mins. cooldown 3.5 mph, incline 5

Total duration: 50 minutes

Distance: 4.23 miles

My new Brooks Ariel sneakers were pretty good, although I will need a couple more workouts to really tell. The biggest thing I noticed was that the sneakers are heavier and a bit clunky feeling. So I didn’t feel as graceful running as I usually do. I think I will get used to it though. No new blisters today, but my bad blister on my inner food still is not healed so it hurt quite a bit. Time will tell if these sneakers are the ones for me!

The sun was out and it was glorious outside:


The view from our balcony!

And not even a half hour later there was this!!!!


A snow storm!!!

Ok Eric and I are off to start packing again! We are moving at the end of the month! :D After that, I am going to make Spagetti Sauce in our slow cooker. I like cooking on large batch of food on Sunday to have for the week! A great time Saver.

That weather is crazy!! Although I’m a little jealous – I live in FL and it’s been ages since I’ve seen snow! (I know, I probably sound crazy to you and other folks who get lots of snow). :)

GREAT workout!!! Too bad about the overestimating machine though.

Quite a change in weather in a short amount of time – wow!!

Good luck packing!!
