The greater Nashville area has been hit with an ice storm.
I’m sure it’s humorous to our friends to the north, but we don’t have the salt or plows to handle snow. And, the thick ice is no joke. I’ll run in snow, but this ice is a no-go for me.
So, this week has been full of treadmill running and cabin fever! I really, really, really miss my run friends.
With an eminent storm, we stocked up…Costco jackpot! (Two of my favorites…Svelte Cappuccino Protein Shake and NuttZo)
Treadmill, weights, and a green smoothie from Daily Juice (in the snow!)
I got out for a Starbucks and THEY WERE CLOSED! At least it gave me an excuse to leave the house.
Jason was making fun of my “baby pants” when we were doing laundry. Run tights are so small when you’re not wearing them!
For dinner, I made a Spinach Artichoke Quinoa Bake…so warm and hearty on a snow day! I’ll have the recipe posted shortly:)
Let the good times roll!
Our track workout was cancelled, because it’s more like an ice skating rink. Nashvillians have literally been ice skating on the street!
Fleet Feet Nashville was celebrating their 13th Birthday, so I ran 13 treadmill miles to celebrate! I am loving my Saucony Zealots!
Some of my playlist for this run:
Miranda Lambert- Little Red Wagon
M.I.A.- Bad Girls
Kanye West/ JayZ- Who Gon Stop ME
Grace Potter- Paris
DJ Khaled- All I Do Is Win
Kanye West- Stronger
It became obvious that the ice wasn’t going anywhere, so they cancelled schools for the rest of the week. All of our restaurants are closed, too.
Fresh flowers are really helping to keep my spirits up!
I took Fat Tuesday very literally and ended the day with pizza and tiramisu.
And, a cupcake. Don’t judge.
10 treadmill miles and core work. (Operation work off the desserts!)
And The Perch opened back up!!! (My shadow looks like I’m 9 months pregnant…it was my giant handbag!)
All of the church’s were cancelling their Ash Wednesday services. Thankfully the Catholic church by my house was held a service!
Then my car got stuck in their parking lot:( A very kind gentleman got me back on the road:)
Lastly, my friend Lisa took this gorgeous picture!
Did you celebrate Fat Tuesday/ Mardi Gras?
How do you keep your spirits up in the winter? How do you fight the winter blues?
What’s the longest distance you’ve ever run on the treadmill? 17 Miles for me.
Do you prefer TV or music for treadmill runs? Music for me!
