Snowercise

After a cold and my cortisone shot that derailed exercise MLK weekend I was determined to not let snow derail me further. Let’s recap:

Thurs 1/21: yoga at work and 7 miles on the treadmill

Fri 1/22: 4 miles outside pre-snow

Sat 1/23: climbed the stairwells on T’s 15 story building for 45 minutes then did laps in his hallway for another 45 minutes. Aka over 75 flights and 10K steps

Sun 1/24: mixed up stairwells and hallways for 1.5 hours for another 75 flights and 10K steps (every time I reached T’s floor I’d walk the hallway)

Mon 1/25: my hamstrings were tight so I walked up a flight then walked the hall up and down the building for an hour. Then I did flow (yoga) and hard core abs Pump DVDs (T even some some hard core abs with me).

Tues 1/26: went to the gym for 6 treadmill miles.

Now I’m in Massachusetts for 1.5 days. Plan to knock out 9 miles today!

Called it

11:15am – Work already called a snow day for tomorrow!

6:25pm – Fed gov’t called a snow day for tomorrow. T and I continue our snow day funsies!

Snow day(s)

Currently: Drinking a beer while reading the new Mindy Kaling book w/ a heated blanket on my lap and Fred at my side while T plays video games. Crockpot quinoa enchiladas are cooking. Other eats include: grilled cheese, soup, eggs, bacon, yogurt, chips and salsa. Other entertainment options include lots of Friday Night Lights, Jack Nicholson and/or Tom Cruise movies, and I brought Once on dvd with hopes of roping T into watching.

Tonight I plan to run as many miles as I can stand on the treadmill (shooting for 6-8, but ugh treadmills). 

T is buying supplies – I made him a shopping list and grouped things by where he’d find them in the store. 

Tomorrow I plan on dropping Freddie and my stuff off at T’s apartment before work so in the case that we close early or snow on my commute I can just drive straight to his place as opposed to stopping by my place (which is not on the way) to get Freddie and my stuff. I figure I’ll add an extra 30 minutes to my morning commute as opposed to Lord know what to my evening commute (it took some people 2-3 hours to get home last night in 1 inch of snow who left after 6pm). 

I also plan on bringing my sneakers and ipod so I can do stairs this weekend since leaving the apartment will not be likely. T’s building is 15 floors – I’m sure I could rack up quite a bit. 

Update:

Ran 7 miles on the treadmill while listening to Serial!

T braved the stores and got 85% of the items on the shopping list, I was able to pick up the rest.

My college already announced it is closed for tomorrow so I can sleep in and drive to T’s. He has to work until noon.

I’m hoping to knock out 10,000 steps each day this weekend, even if it’s just climbing stairwells.
