A bit of a lag

Friday, January 22, 2021

Well work got the best of me. And Shin Splints came back to my left leg and knee pain so train was derailed. Here is Eric and my last walk before I took 4 days off.

I came back on Tuesday with a slow run. It went ok.  It was snowy too.

We also went for a walk on Wednesday. 

Baker’s Dozen

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Days 11-13 have been walks. The weather is still incredibly beautiful for January. I actually tried running today but my old shin splint pain came back. I haven’t had that in years. Time to find my calf sleeve. 😢👎🏻🤬

Elephant 🐘 Run and a Fall

Day 9 - I fell on the ice. And of course somebody saw it and asked if I was ok. Embarrassing! It hurt but I got back up and walked home

Day 10 - After my little fall on the ice yesterday, I decided my 5 mile run today should be closer to home just in case. I mapped it out with the streets around me and I’m like that looks like an upside down elephant. So here you go...it’s my elephant 5 mile run. 

Eight Straight

Friday, January 8, 2021

Eight days of activity in a row. All outside in January. Starting the new year out right. Only a walk today but still got out there.

Day 6 - To get to the finish line you have to (unfortunately) train. I had to wear this shirt today to remind me why I do this.

Neon Walking

Tuesday, January 5, 2021

Day 5 - 30 minute walk in 32* 

A repeat of Sunday except Hubby came along. I pulled out the neon shirts today. I loved this color 5 years ago. I remember when I bought this yellow shirt at the Rock ‘n Roll Las Vegas Race Expo. I was so excited. That was such a fun time with Phil and Tracie. I still love it but don’t wear it as often. 

The forecast for the next several days is mild with highs in the upper 20s and low 30s. I’m not complaining about this January...yet. 

Balmy Winter Run

Monday, January 4, 2021

Day 4 - Short Run around the “block” (2 miles) 

It was a beautiful January day. The sun was shining and it was 36 degrees. Working from home is awesome for running in January. I can got out at 4pm and be home before the sun goes down. There were a lot of slick spots and the road in front of our house is awful but other parts are dry. I'm starting to get used to the new neighborhood. I feel like there are more streets to run on here but no sidewalks. :(

Blue Day

Sunday, January 3, 2021

Day 3 - 30 minute walk in 32* It’s a blue day...blue sky that is! Sun ☀️ is shining and the snow ❄️ is melting. 

Running in Red

Saturday, January 2, 2021

Day 2 - 4 mile run...very slow run...ok mostly a walk. I decided I need trail running shoes for this snow, slush, ice crap. 

2021 Run

Friday, January 1, 2021

Day 1 - First run of the year was SLOWWWW. But I got out there and did it! I did my New Year Day usual, running the year.  It was a bit chilly at 16*, but not as cold as a couple years ago when it was -24* wind chill.

Hopefully I have a good running year. 

This is MY YEAR!

2,021 miles in 2021. This is my year.
For Mom!
