It’s FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!! Oh my, I’m so glad the weekend is upon us! I’m ready to do nothing and everything, ha ha! Apparently Nova Scotia isn’t going to be hit with THE big storm this weekend so we’ll see how that turns out!
Today I’m linking up with Mar on The Run, You Signed Up For What and Eat Pray Run DC for Friday Five Link Up. I’m sharing “Things I’ve been up to this Week”.
One: I managed a great treadmill run last night: 8km! I’m now trying to build my base back up so I’ll be ready for Half Marathon training soon. Yup, I’m running a late spring half marathon June 19th = Johnny Miles in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia.
Two: I’ve been using my balance ball at work more and trying not to sit so much. Since returning back to work from the holidays, sitting is killing my upper back. Gotta move more, gotta stand more.
Three: Mid week I borrowed some snowshoes for the girls and when I got home from work took them out to play in them. They were too big for Hilary, so she wore her “stompers” and was just as happy. Lilly was loving the “big kid” snowshoes! Glad we have tones of snow to play in.
Four: Since the girls went snowshoeing, I decided to go on my lunch break by myself. It was the perfect day to be out snowshoeing.
Five: I’ve been fueling my runs a lot lately with Nuun and discovered the “tropical” flavour. A must while I run – watching Chicago Fire/PD/Med or any other show on my tablet. Last night my internet was a little wonky so I had to run for a bit without anything, then reset my tablet and all was good.
How’s your week going?
Are you expected to get any of this crazy/intense snow storm? (be safe)
What gets you through your treadmill runs?

I keep meaning to get out snowshoeing at lunch. Our work property abuts a bunch of amazing parks.
I’ve been reading books on my ipad a lot during my treadmill runs lately. Also I may only allow myself to watch certain junky shows on the treadmill.
Books get me through tmill runs. If I am watching tv, I am WAY too aware of the fact that time isn’t passing!
Those kids!! So much cuteness. When my treadmill runs get long I watch a running movie and for shorter runs I pretend like I’m racing the Olympic marathon trials. 😉 and NUUN. I always have NUUN! Oh, and we have over a FOOT of snow here in NC. It’s crazy! I’ve not seen this much snow ever.
Watching a great show on my iPad or TV always passes the time while on the treadmill. I have never tried the tropical flavor. I like the watermelon and strawberry lemonade.
Love the Chicago shows- PD is my favorite. I’ve been watching Z Nation while riding the bike- it helps pass the time. It’s not my usual thing but I can’t stop watching!
I like watching 30 minutes TV shows (comedies mostly) on the treadmill. The laughter distracts me from the running! We’re under a foot (and still falling) of snow right now – it’s so pretty but will get annoying after a while!
I thought about you earlier when I was out for my run, or rather trekking back up the hill to my house. Wishing I had snowshoes. 🙂
You were hard core going out for two runs this weekend in THAT weather!
