I want to introduce to you the cutest puppy in the world...Chandler.
No, he isn't mine, but I get to enjoy him every day :)
I work at a Tech Center with a Vet Science course. The teacher recently adopted this little cutey. He comes to work everyday and I love watching him grow, he has doubled in size already :)
The week started slow...
Monday it snowed and I had a day off work. I sort of cleaned my house, and I did a little meal prep for lunches #winning
Tuesday it was this...
It rained so hard in the morning all the snow melted, and then the sun came out.
I got 20 awesome miles in after work. I had just a slither of light when I finished.
I didn't die quite as much on the hills this time. I am making a smidgen of progress :)
Also, I knew daylight was drying up, so it made me push myself. The first six miles I knocked out were PR pace for me.
I am not running, but I am still doing hill work!
It is just an average park, but it does provide a much better workout than my neighborhood.
I have gained some weight the past few months. I need to get a grip and halt the train.
Why does it pack on so much easier than it comes off!?
There is one thing my body is really efficient at...
Preserving and increasing my middle roll. It is aggravating!
Of course I went to a birthday party tonight and had cake! Monday, I'll get on that healthier kick Monday...
On a completely different note, I got this handy little stainless steel reusable K cup. Best thing ever! The coffee tastes better and I save money #winning
If you saw my Thursday post, you know I pulled out a pair of Hoka's I wore while injured last year. I wish I would have thought of this sooner! My feet improved already wearing them. Impact can't penetrate these things. I am not comfortable with how high they are, but they work for now.
My Doc called when my orthodics came in, and I left work Friday to go pick them up.
My shiny new lease on life. I hope they help deeeeeees feet!
My Doc loved my Hoka's because they do protect my feet ...in fact, he wants me to try my first few run/walks in them.
Okay Doc, I'll do it for you :)
Saturday it was pretty warm and I thought I was going to get a long ride in. I drove an hour to get to this trail. I had my pack on, ready to do it!
Well guess what!? Biking can kick your tush as much as running.
The limestone trail was soaked and it was like pedaling in quicksand. I wish I would have just went to my usual park. #notwinning
Isn't working out supposed to be kind of fun?! I had to bag it...
This ride was not fun.
SO painfully slow lol

I got 46.98 cycling miles accomplished this week. Tuesday and Saturday outdoors. My hill session Tuesday rocked! I had hoped my mileage would be a bit higher, but it's all good. I worked hard Sunday at the gym doing legs :)
I am just glad to have another week in February gone.
Counting down the days to March, so I can try a little running again.
These crazy weather swings are the strangest ever!
Are you experiencing them in your area?
Anyone ever get humbled trying to pedal?
Have you tried reusable K cups yet? TRY!!!
How was your week?
What was your best workout?
