Snowy Runs & Snowshoeing

Hello middle of the month already!!! Wow, can you believe we are at Jan 20th already?

Apparently today is Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year and Sunday (Jan 19th) was quitters day according to an article on Strava! Most people quit their new fitness habit by the 19th of January…..who knew?

Last week brought us two snow storms (1 snow day for the kids) but not nearly as much as Newfoundland received. Despite the weather, I managed to get our for an evening run with my running buddy, Krystol. It’s been months since we last ran together and we took it slow because 1 – the roads were covered in snow and 2 – we talked a lot and can’t run fast and talk at the same time.

I jumped on my bike Thursday night as it was storming outside and I didn’t want to go running that. I managed to get in a solid 21.17km while watching a new to me show ” The Blacklist”. Friday night I had a soccer game.

Saturday had both of our girls playing basketball TOGETHER for the first time ever. Not going to lie, I may have teared up once while watching them…..proud mama here. It was our youngest’s first game and she did awesome. Birthday parties and errands took over the rest of our day.

Sunday, I thought it would be a great idea to go on a family snowshoe hike as we were getting more snow. It was a great idea but wasn’t the easiest or fun for all. We hike around 2.77km and stopped for hot chocolate along the way. The girls bush-wacked their way through the woods while my husband, Carmacks and I took the trail. Some shovelling and snow blowing the driveway and we were all done at that point.

Needless to say, we were all pretty exhausted going to bed last night. Not much running last week but a whole lot of fun (well, 98% of the time).

Anyone quit their new fitness habits?

Anyone else out playing in the snow with their kids?
