Yes, you read that right. Total mileage for this past week was only 26 miles - and 4 was on the bike. Why do you ask? Because we had 8 inches of snow (I know it is a small amount of snow compared to some of you) and the kids were out of school 3 days! I did not leave my house for 2 days, except for sledding at the neighborhood hill.
Needless to say, I am in withdraw. And as you can tell, did not blog for almost a week! My entire mood has shifted. I was even dreaming of swimming and getting out of the house. When Saturday's long run arrived, the roads and snow mounds made it too unsafe. I tried to run on the treadmill and was SOOOOO bored and I had great company! Only managed to get 8 miles and that was with 5 minute bike breaks every 30 minutes.
So friends... tell me... how do I beat the treadmill blues? And before you tell me to watch TV... we do not have one near the mill and I do not have a portable DVD player. I also listen to my iPod and it still seemed like the miles took forever to go by!
