Birthday Sweat Session

Outside the gym this morning right as the snow started coming down.

Well not quite the birthday sweat session I wanted but it will do :)
Headed to the gym today and got in a 2.5 mile run (at 1% incline) with mile 2 at a 7:53 pace cause I wanted to see if I still had at least a little bit of speed left in me. Since I'm focusing more on mileage increase I haven't been focusing on speed but I will start incorporating some in next week.

After the run Gene and I did a few sets of push ups then we headed home. He had an early meeting and the snow was really start to come down.

I wanted to get in a few more miles, outside, today. But as you can see in the picture below that isn't going to happen.

And I'm ok with staying in today. I could hop on my treadmill but it's in my detached garage, and something about walking even just a few feet into the cold snowy day makes me not want to run that bad haha.  I might do a little at home workout to supplement my morning workout though.

School is still open even though it looks crazy out there!I remember now that it takes a lot for schools to close here. They would literally have to be a minimum of 12 inches on the ground haha. My son wasn't happy I didn't have to work today and he had to go to school. He said it wasn't fair. I told him well it's my birthday. He still wasn't impressed :)

Hope you all have a great day!
