I can’t believe it’s actually Friday. This week has flown by. This time next week I will be enjoying myself in the warmth of Phoenix, Arizona and honestly I can’t wait. I haven’t had a lot going on this week (never a bad thing). This last month has honestly taken a real toll on me. I’m cold, miserable and just want to stay inside. Each year I don’t think it’s possible to dislike winter anymore and each year it proves me wrong.
On the cold note, does anyone else feel like February really brought the winter? January was a cold month but it feels as if February has just been brutal. To my knowledge, a negative degree windchills is not normal for this area of NJ/Philly. It doesn’t make me miss Upstate, NY and I feel for my friends in Canada. Hopefully March brings warmer weather. As you can tell, going to college in the arctic tundra of New York state makes me not miss that climate.
How I ran outdoors yesterday:
Incase you wondered my layering system:
Bottom: Tights and sweats
Top: Tank, knit sweater, Gore wind resistant jacket, puffer vest, arm warmers and mittens
Head: ear warmers and Burton hat (Burton hats are actually made for skiiing)
Here are some articles I have been enjoying without leaving my house.
Inflammation (A great and information post about inflammation and if runners are relying too much on NSAIDS)
12 Ways to Avoid Burnout (I think this can be applied to any different topics and activities. There is a lot of great advice here).
Forget Barefoot, new Trend for Minimalist shoes I love my max cushioned shoes so I can completely relate to this.
Blogging: The State of Blogging Great post on how blogging has changed in the last few years. It really makes you think.
10 Signs You are a Retired Swimmer (Yes on all accounts…I don’t miss swimming at all right now)
15 Most Expensive Places to Live in the US (I was lucky enough to run through a few neighborhoods in the number 1 spot and holy moly. I will say I had assumed NYC and San Francisco would be in the top 5!)
That is all I have this week, enjoy your weekend.
