As you know, I love my Pro Compression socks and sleeves and really can’t say enough positive things about them.

Being a part of the Pro Compression crew as an ambassador makes me really happy and I look forward to spreading the #keepititight love with all of you throughout the year.

So I really don’t know when I will run outside again.

We are in a true winter pattern of frigid temperatures with snow every few days.

And the snow piles from the blizzard earlier this week are not melting any time soon which means it really isn’t safe for me to run out doors because when I reach a corner, I can’t see cars and the cars can’t see me.

That would be my car under there and my son on the other side after the blizzard.

Even my running path which is free from cars (just annoying dog walkers who don’t feel the need to leash their dogs) is fairly icy too.

I am fine with this. Really I am. I have a gym. I have a treadmill.

My mileage may go down from the usual but that’s okay too.

A little bit of mixing things up and cross training is actually a good thing.

weekly workout recap

*Monday*

 

Pure Barre Mile High DVD & 6.2 Treadmill Miles

I was praying to get my run done outside before it started snowing but that didn’t happen since the flakes started just ten minutes before my son was leaving for school.

My treadmill run went something like this:

3 miles @ avg 8:40 pace -> off for biceps/triceps – > 3.2 miles @ avg 8:30 pace

Sometimes its easier for me to break up treadmill runs, especially when I am not feeling loose and happy during the first few miles. The second half of the run is always better and it certainly doesn’t hurt to get the arm work in too.

*Tuesday*

 

Pure Barre Studio Series DVD & Shoveling A Bit

Since the blizzard-blowing snow was up against my front door (we got like 24 inches), I didn’t even attempt to walk to the gym.

I always enjoyed shoveling and it makes for a great workout too.

The thing is, the landscapers in my community handle all of the plowing and clearing of the snow which takes away from most of my fun.

I did get out there to dig around my car so that counts for something when you are dealing with two feet of snow.

 

*Wednesday*

 

7.31 Treadmill Miles

This treadmill run was not pretty at all. Bad runs are never fun but a bad run on the treadmill? Even worse.

It took me 4.5 miles to hit the sweet spot which did let me cruise the rest of the way at a 7:50 pace so I can’t really classify this run as completely awful but those first few miles? Awful.

The only thing that got me through it was pure determination and positive thinking.

 

*Thursday*

 

Pure Barre Studio Series DVD & Another Gym Day

I didn’t know for sure what I wanted to do when I got to the gym so I started with the elliptical machine.

  • 10 min elliptical
  • 1 mile treadmill @ avg 8:30 pace
  • 10 min elliptical
  • 3 miles treadmill @ avg 8: 30 pace

 

 

*Friday*

 

Another Gym Day

I am getting real creative when it comes to tricking my legs into running some miles indoors.

  • 10 min elliptical
  • 1 mile treadmill @ avg 8:45 pace
  • bathroom stop
  • 1 mile @ 8:40 pace
  • 10 min elliptical
  • 2 miles treadmill @ avg 8:40 pace

 

*Saturday*

 

13.50 Treadmill Miles

If you want it bad enough, you make it happen.

*Sunday*

 

I haven’t totally decided. Most likely a Pure Barre DVD and maybe a few recovery miles. Maybe.

    Yay Pro compression! I prefer the socks but yesterday I wore sleeves under my tights with regular socks that were little warmer and that worked really well.
    Today I’m not running but I’m going to my first PureBarre class at a studio!! I’m a little nervous but I know it will be great.

      I can’t wait to hear about your Pure Barre class. I keep meaning to get over to the studio for a class, it’s been a couple of months and I really like the in studio classes!

  • Michele @ paleorunningmomma February 1, 2015, 8:25 am

    Seriously with this weather! I’m glad I got my run in today because with another snow storm tonight and crazy freezing temps this week doesn’t look promising. I love the pro compression socks! I used to wear only calf sleeves but love the way the socks feel.

      I love the socks too and they are great with Uggs and my rain boots. So comfortable…I have had enough of the weather. Hoping the rest of the week is calm after tomorrow’s weather.

  • Frank February 1, 2015, 8:51 am

    Bought some other brand calf sleeves about a month ago. Want some that are more substantial and with the foot so thinking I’m buying today. Thanks!

    Buying not baking today.

    80 minutes at Saratoga Y yesterday (up from my usual Saturday Six Miler), combo track and treadmill. Back there today for 2 hours of running.

    We didn’t get much snow last week, 4-6 inches. It’s 12 degrees here right now with a storm on the way. …

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles February 1, 2015, 5:33 pm

      Pro Compression socks are the best in my opinion.

      • Frank February 1, 2015, 6:00 pm

        Bought the over the calf sock.
        After my 60 minutes on the treadmill/60 laps on the track Half Marathon today, I think I should get the full tights. . .

    Congrats on the ProCompression ambassadorship!

    That snow looks brutal, no wonder you’ve been sticking to the treadmill.

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles February 1, 2015, 5:33 pm

      Thank you…And yeah, I have had enough snow but we have more on the way tonight.

      I love your positive attitude about the treadmill! Honestly, sometimes I really love it too! When things are flowing for me, I can run really fast and get a great workout in.

  • Suzy February 2, 2015, 3:38 am

    13 miles on a treadmill is no joke, sister! That is impressive and yes, you’ve got a lot of mental strength to plow through that one. And whoa, you’ve got a lot of snow!
