What I love about Colorado

I went for my run today in shorts and a t-shirt. By tomorrow morning it is supposed to be 30 degrees and snowing! As crazy as it may sound I love this about Colorado weather! The random, nice 50 degree days make it so much easier to get through the cold wintery weather.

Excited to Run again.

After about 4 days in bed i'm finally feeling like i'm getting over this sinus infection. I'm heading to the gym after work to try 4 miles on the treadmill. I'm excited to get back into things! I think its a good thing this is a step back week though!

Sick :-(

I've been sick since Tuesday. Whatever cold I seem to have picked up seems to have morphed into a sinus/ear infection and shows no sign of disappearing or even improving anytime soon. I think i'll need to take myself to the doctor tomorrow. Needless to say, not much running has happened this week.

Weekly Recap 02/08 - 02/14

It's been a rough week, not running wise, but life wise! As some of you will know we found out we will be moving to Ohio in May for me to finish graduate school. Graduate school itself is seeming overwhelming right now. I've been in the lab at least 10 hours/day during the week and working every weekend, plus working on papers when i'm at home. ugh. We're also trying to start interviewing movers and figure out the paperwork for me to transfer to Case Western. Whew, I feel like I need a vacation!

Running this week has been good though! It's week 3 of 1/2 marathon training.

Sunday - 8.5 miles outside. It snowed last night, so it was a little chilly, but the sun was shining and I felt great on the run. It also felt good to increase distance from last week!

Saturday - 5 miles outside. Beautiful weather, 40 and sunny! A great day to run!

Friday - 24SET class at the gym. I decided to go ahead and do the class this week since I skipped the Wednesday weights class.

Thursday - 6 miles outside. It was freaking cold! I was still happy it was light enough outside that I didn't have to use the treadmill though!

Wednesday - I was just to exhausted to get out of bed and go to the gym, so I took the day off.

Tuesday - 4 miles on the treadmill. I guess I lied last week, it wasn't my last treadmill run. It had snowed monday and the sidewalks were still really icy, so I figured i'd better not chance it outside.

Monday - 24Lift class at the gym.

Total Weekly Mileage: 23.5 miles

Weekly Recap 02/01 - 02/07

Sunday - A very snowy 6 mile run! There wasn't actually too much snow on the ground, so despite the fact that the snow was coming down, the running conditions were pretty good, plus it gave me a chance to try out my new waterproof running jacket, which worked great!

Saturday - 4 miles outside.

Friday - 24Set weights and cardio class at 24 hour fitness. I think next week i'm going to skip this one since I was definitely very sore for my weekend runs.

Thursday - 6 miles on the treadmill.

Wednesday - Boot Camp class at 24 hour fitness.

Tuesday - 4 miles on the treadmill.

Monday - Body Pump at 24 hour fitness.

Total weekly miles: 20 miles

Last Dreadmill run

This week was my second week of 1/2 marathon training for the Colfax Half Marathon, which included a 6 mile run last night. Running on the treadmill during the week, when it is to dark to run outside, has become just painful! According to the sunrise times for next week, it will be light out at 6:33, meaning I can run outside, when its light and still get to work on time! This is unbelievably exciting!
