At least you would think so if you went to the grocery store last night. The shelves were practically bare. The employees were bringing milk and bread directly out of the stockroom in boxes and people were loading up their carts. It was insane. Apparently a prediction of 2-4 inches of snow requires one to have 3 gallons of milk and 4 dozen eggs on hand.
Luckily it was still clear this morning, and I was able to attend lunch at a friend's house. I actually met her through Pilot Wives' Club (our hubby's work for the same company). Hey, if you can meet your spouse online these days, why not a new friend?!
When we first met for lunch last January, she was hoping to be pregnant soon. Well almost a year later, I was there to celebrate the christening of their precious little boy. It was really kind of them to include me and Em in the special day. We had a great time, and way too much yummy cake.
When I got home the sky was already turning gray, but I wanted to get in a relaxed run before the snow started. It must have been the cold temps combined with all the sugary goodness coursing through me because I had no problem finishing 8 miles in an hour.
The rest of the week looked like this:
Mon: 5.2 mi on treadmill (@ 7.2, 1% incline), 15 mins elliptical
Wed: 5 mi treadmill (fartleks ranging from 7.0-9.0, 1%-5% incline)
Sat: 5.5 mi treadmill (@ 7.5, 1% incline), 25 mins elliptical
Sun: 8 mi outside @ 7:30/mi pace
So it was a light week with 3 days off, and mostly indoors. My workout today was solid, so I feel good about that. Looks like the treadmill will be in my future for the next few days. The flakes have already started, and they're going to shut this place dooown.
You stay warm Atlanta. And classy :)
