Pennsylvania is going through the snowpocalypse of 2017. We accumulated over 2 feet of snow and it is still a blizzard outside. I am in the middle of a running challenge. I am trying to run over 29,029 feet of elevation in 30 days. Today would be just another day in the eyes of training. So I gathered some friends and went for a….. Slow trek uphill.
In the last two days I ran over 4,000 feet of elevation. Yesterday, during crossfit, we did a billion pistols (basically one legged squats) and 4 sets of 6 reps of our max of back squats. My legs are in a tad bit of pain. To help recover I did the basic stretches and smashed some sore areas with a foam roller which helps but my muscles are spent. Then the storm came. The shovel is going to be used as todays workout tool. Running (slow uphill trekking) will be the cool down.
The photo on the left was from my run yesterday. Beautiful day. It was warm enough to where the snow was melting. The photo on the right was during the snowstorm. Same spot as the photo on the left but with zero visibility. I have two Goldendoodles (Jake & Vader). They are the best friends anyone could ever have. They would even climb a mountain in two feet of snow during a blizzard to hang out with me. I couldn’t ask for anything more.
