I eventually did get out of bed this morning. 🙂 And out the door we went!
It was a total winter wonderland!
We walked to the Downtown Mall to run some errands and see if the town was still operating. Along the way we got a little extra cardio in by giving a stuck car a push up the hill! I was very grateful that I didn’t have to be anywhere today.
The Mall was quieter than usual but most businesses were open.
We then decided to walk to Matt and Kath‘s a couple miles away. A few blocks before we reached their house we
ran walked into them, all suited up and headed downtown for lunch. So we went back downtown!
We ate at Eppie’s, a pay-at-the-counter lunch spot that I have been wanting to try since we moved here. After being obsessed with soup for weeks I actually was craving a salad on this snowy day.
Check out the Collard greens and mac n’ cheese in the background, they came with Tate’s lunch but lucky for me, he’s a good sharer. Yum!
After 6.5 miles of urban hiking and lunching we headed home for some R&R and work. Just before dusk we wanted a little more snow action and went back out for Downtown Mall walk Round 3. Whew! We covered over 9 miles todays! It was good for my spirits to spend so much time outside, even if it was (below) freezing and sometimes slippery.
Since I committed to yoga this morning I did this 20 minute routine. I was only lukewarm about the sequence and instruction but it was just the right thing to stretch out my walking muscles.
How did your workout go today? Running? Tae Bo? I want to hear all about it!
I’m off to eat some soup. 😉
LOOOOVE the second shot of downtown!!! So cozy!!
Can’t believe you guys walked more. I guessed we walked about 6 miles too!
I didn’t do much besides walk today! Well, that and an episode of GG 😉
What a great workout! I can’t motivate myself to get outside when it’s that cold. The picture of downtown is beautiful.
It’s all about the layering and keeping moving. If you have the right clothes it’s not bad, give it a try!
I had to get out early this morning in 4 inches of snow, the roads were horrible. So during the time spent at work, I was sulking that I was not at home enjoying the snow 🙂 This afternoon I took my two shar-peis out for a long walk in the snow and they loved it! And I loved seeing them bury their faces in the white powder too!
That downtown picture is gorgeous.

That mac n cheese looks good. I could go for that!
I ran six miles with my husband rather than our planned four. We were having such a great time and the weather was perfect so we kept running.
My evening exercise TV plans got lost in holiday events.
I love it when a planned run gets longer, that’s when I know I am really listening to my body and pushing it appropriately. Enjoy Exercise TV!
