Hey guys! I’m so excited that you enjoyed reading my brother’s recap from his awesome winter ascent of Mt. Hood as much as I did! I figure if you’re reading my blog you like adventure and would enjoy that post, and I was right. 🙂 Since many of you said you’d be interested in reading about his other two big mountain summits (Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams – you already read about his Mt. St. Helens ascent with me and Matt!), I’ll share those later this month! Stay tuned. 🙂
As for me, I’ve been keeping things MUCH more low key on the workout front than my brother! Yesterday morning I wanted to join my track group but I ended up going to bed late on Monday and didn’t want to skimp on sleep – plus, my hamstrings were feeling a bit tight and sore after our weekend ski trip. So instead I slept in an hour and a half later and then convinced Matt to join me on a short neighborhood run before we both headed off to work. 🙂 He’s in the off season for soccer right now so he’s actually been interested in doing some runs with me during the week, which is fun! We just did a quick 2 miles because we didn’t have a ton of time, and then I came back and spent some time with the foam roller.
I’m planning to hit the track later this week instead, and even texted my track buddies of my plans so I would have some accountability. 😉 It’s been really hard motivating to get out for runs in the cold and dark lately, especially when we’re gone on the weekends and I miss out on the prime time group runs and get out of the running groove! Zara agrees.
On the food front, I had a really delicious breakfast on Monday – my high school friend Jenny was in town briefly so we made plans to grab a late breakfast before she left town. Glad I got the chance to see her! We went to Cassatt’s Kiwi Café in Arlington – I love their breakfast quesadilla with eggs, cheese, and mushrooms!
Yesterday’s breakfast at home was also delicious – we had some leftover scrambled eggs with tomato from Sunday that I reheated and paired with toast topped with Whole Foods guac (the best). Yummm!
And that’s all I have for you today! Have a fabulous day. 🙂
Anyone else having trouble motivating for winter running lately?
