Flippin’ Cold + This Week’s Workouts

Go home, Hercules, you’re drunk.

It “feels like” -39 degrees outside, according to my oh-so-accurate friend, Weather.com.

Winter Storm Hercules weather from arctic air


BRR. I think this is the coldest weather I’ve ever experienced, in my life.

I would take one of those cliché pictures of my car dashboard thermometer to further show you just how cold it really is…

Except it’s so cold that my car won’t start, so I got nothin’ except that dandy screenshot above.

On the plus side, I get to work from home today, in the warm cozy confines of my blanket & cup of coffee, so I’ll take the trade-off. I won’t be able to get to the gym for my workout tonight (and you can bet your sweet bass I’m not running outside) so I guess I’ll switch my “off” day for this week to today.

More time to binge-watch Boardwalk Empire tonight, I guess.


Yes, Matt and I are late to the party, but we’re finally watching this fabulous series. I love the time period, the acting, the fashion and drama of the show. We watched the entire first season since last Wednesday! If I did a weekend recap, it would be: grocery shopping, cleaning, and watching Boardwalk Empire. So there you have it.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to stupid winter storm Hercules and this arctic air blast leavin’ town over the next few days. Hopefully I can leave my house tomorrow, but it’s supposed to still be pretty frigid (like, still -35 in the morning tomorrow) so only time (and my car battery) shall tell.

In the meantime, I’ll look forward to these workouts for the week, in hopes I can leave the house soon without losing a finger or nose or vital limb to frostbite:

• Monday: Off
• Tuesday: 3 miles easy
• Wednesday: 3 miles med-hard
• Thursday: 4 miles easy
• Friday: Off
• Saturday: 6 miles (heat wave—high of 36!)
• Sunday: Cross Train/Strength

Are you battling Hercules as well? How are you handling the snow/cold?

What workouts are you looking forward to this week?

  1. holy moly! That is freezing! It got pretty cold where I am last week, but things seem to be warming up today. Now everything is melting. Good luck surviving the cold!
