It’s been a busy few days (week) between work, snow storm #1, skiing, facilitating a workshop on the weekend and storm #2…I managed to finally get a run in yesterday!
Last week Lilly had a 1/2 day of school, so I booked the 1/2 day off work and the four of us hit the hill. This would be Hilary’s first time (3 years old) and Lilly’s 3rd year on skis. Both Sai and I went prepared to deal with tantrums potentially from both girls but the complete opposite happened.
Both girls had so much fun. Hilary and Sai spent time “playing” on a very small hill while Lilly and I hit the bunny hill at Ski Martock. They now have a magic carpet which is amazing. I skied down backwards for the 10+ runs Lilly did. She’s skiing on her own now and figuring out how to turn and stop etc. It’s so awesome to watch her think about the process.
I could see Hilary and Sai off in the distance and she just looked like she was having a blast. Lots of laughing and when I got over to them, she kept saying “one more time”. Looks like we’ve got skiers on our hands 🙂
I shoveled two mornings in a row last week so I could get to work and then spent 1.5 hours snow blowing my driveway and two neighbours driveways yesterday. We also played outside all afternoon.
I ran last week on the treadmill and it wasn’t great so after 3km, I got off THE BEAST and did some weights and skipping.
I did managed to sqeeze in a run yesterday after doing the driveways. 5k on snow covered roads and sidewalks that were partially cleared. The sidewalks were like running on sand – not fun.
It was great to spend lots of time outside (even the early morning shoveling). That’s about it!
How was your weekend?
Are you running inside (treadmill, track), outside (clear roads or snow covered) ?
If you have snow – do you mind shoveling?

I have the exact same Balega socks and love them! Glad everyone had such a great time!!
Super compfy socks!
Love the ski pictures! I am heading out in a few minutes for my first day on the slopes this season myself. Wooohooo! Have a great week!
Enjoy the slopes today!
Your kids are so flippin cute. They are literally a perfect blend of you and Sai!
Bonus workout with all that shovelling! Cute kids. I don’t have to shovel as I live in an apartment building. It’s been very cold here lately. I got out once this weekend. I hope to run more this week.
We got a snowblower this year and it is a godsend – not that I use it that is strictly my husband’s chore. We also have a city law where you have to clear your sidewalk within 24 hours of a storm or you can get a fine. Most people are good about it so you can usually use the sidewalks pretty quickly after snow.
It’s been below zero here, which is too cold for me, so I’ve been working out inside, LOL!!
Looks like you have lots of snow again! I don’t like shovelling and I can relate to that running in sand feeling – all winter long!
We sure do!!!!!! So much snow to play in finally!!!!! 🙂
I don’t love shoveling but I better be prepared to get over it because we’re supposed to have a big storm this week. Your girls are so cute in their winter gear! One of these days I’m going to have to get Betty on skis. 🙂
Good luck with the storm! Yes, you need to get Betty on skis….she’d be a super star!
Ahhh so jealous of all of your snow! I think we might finally have enough for me to go skiing so I’m hoping to go this weekend! I love how excited your daughters are about it.
We’re getting a little more now (school is cancelled for kids!) and another storm on the weekend to come! Hope you are able to get out skiing soon!
