Snow, snow and more snow! Winter has finally arrived in Nova Scotia! We had a big storm last Friday (30cm), today we’re getting 30-60cm at the moment an other 10-15 on Thursday!
Though I don’t love being stuck in the house, I’m sure looking forward to snowshoeing and skiing! Last week’s workouts were all over the place with not a lot of running – so far, I’m okay with that. I’ve yet to sign up for a spring race so I’m not following a training plan at the moment. I’m struggling at which one to register because every since race I want to run my husband has to work those weekends – bad timing, eh! Oh well, I’ll find one and figure it out.
Workouts February 6th – 12th:
Monday: Rest Day. I was planning to go to Barre but bailed 10 minutes before the class as I was honestly, just exhausted. I needed a rest day.
Tuesday: 40 minutes on my new trainer! Woohoo! I came home from work to find my bike attached to a new trainer that my husband bought me! Now I can cycle indoors…hello cross training. And no, triathlons are not in my near future…I’ve gotta get over my open water fear first before I even consider it. That or be allowed to use a life jacket – HA ha, yeah right!
New trainer needs a name….
Wednesday: 5k Treadmill Run & PT exercises.
Thursday: Rest Day
Friday: SNOW STORM!!!!!!! No running, no cycling but a wee bit of snow shoveling! We got around 30 cm of snow.
Saturday: Soccer Game. I had a 9 AM game so the whole family came to watch however, I was just coming down with our latest head cold. It was a rough game as I just didn’t have a lot of energy. We lost.
We stayed after the game as there is open play for families. We ran, played soccer, hula hooped and hung out with some other families. I did some foam rolling once we got home and relaxed in my Tiux Socks.

Sunday: An hour of snowshoeing with the girls. Even though we were all feeling under the weather, I took the girls out for about an hour of stop-and-start snowshoeing. You know…“Mom, I’m tired and we stop for a minute”….sure! After the first few times, I kinda gave up and just went with it. We stopped to have a snack and some hot chocolate which ended up being the highlight of the little snowshoe adventure.
