Jumping in for another edition of the Weekly Wrap with Wendy and Hoho. As we, in the DC area, were hit with a bigger than usual snow storm last weekend, this week is all about surviving “snurlough”. Weather people love to name the storms around here and because so many in this area are also hit with furlough, the storm was named “Snurlough”.
Weekly Wrap Surviving “Snurlough” Week
Sunday- snow shoeing + 10 min Peloton stretch class
We woke up to about 10 inches of snow Sunday morning which is super unusual for us here. While it was supposed to be a rest day for me, I could not pass up the chance to strap on my snow shoes and take a little walk through our winter wonderland.
Monday-30 min Peloton ride + 60 m strength training + 3 mile afternoon walk
Never miss a Monday! Enjoying the bike rides to warm up before strength training.
Tuesday-Snowy 3.2 mile run + 10 min post run peloton stretch + hot yoga 60 m
It was icy and a little dicey from Snurlough but we got out there and got it done. Helps when the sun is shining.
Wednesday- 90 min strength training and boxing + 5 min Peloton stretch + 4 m afternoon walk
Trying to keep up with the RunBet challenge has me doing afternoon walks on non running days. I would not have gone out today had it not been for the challenge and my friend Sue.
[In case you missed it- Rope Assisted Stretches for runners]
Thursday- 4 mile run + 10 min Glute stretch Peloton
The Snurlough snow has stayed on the ground all week long. Thankfully, our trail is in pretty good condition with just a few icy spots.
Friday- 45 min Peloton ride + 10 min core class
These bike classes are challenging but I do love that I can sing at the top of my lungs and no one hears me. Today’s 80’s rock ride was a blast.
Saturday- 5.5 mile run + hot yoga
It was a dreary morning with cold, icy rain on the way. A run with a friend is the best way to brighten the day. Hit up a new Ramen noodle spot with the hubs to warm up post run.
Hopefully the rain tonight will wash away what is left of the snurlough which I now call snirt. Snow and dirt mixed together “snirt” to form that brown pile on the sides of all the streets. Yup it’s January! Who else got a bunch of snow this week? Is there a name for your storm?
