I made it to the gym bright and early for a shoulder and ab workout. I was also able to get an easy 3 mile run in ( 28:55). Friday night was also pizza and cheese bread night, oh and Coldstone Creamery has a gingerbread ice cream concoction that was awesome. We "try" to eat well all week long and save one meal as a "cheat meal".
First day of my running club run. I was prepared to run 6 miles, but we did 8. It snowed the whole time and my hands were numb ( but only towards the end). My partner in crime ( Hi Mary!) almost ended up lost, but thankfully two heads are better than one and we made our way back to home base without even one wrong move. I am not very good with directions, so this was nice. Maybe next time we will take the map the coach leaves for us.
I am starting to get more excited about training. The first speed session will be on Thursday. The low temperature for that day ( as of now) is -3 degrees and the high is 9. If anyone knows of the warmest gloves to wear for running, don't be shy, let me know!!
Protect Your Hands and FeetAs much as 30% of your body heat escapes through your hands and feet. On mild days, wear gloves that wick moisture away. Mittens are a better choice on colder days because your fingers will share their body heat. You can also tuck disposable heat packets into your mittens. Add a wicking sock liner under a warm polar fleece or wool sock, but make sure you have enough room in your running shoes to accommodate these thicker socks.
*My first review/giveaway WILL be on Monday.
