The storm gave way to a glorious morning. I did a swan dive into the snowbank before I shoveled some more. It was fantastic. My 4 year old loved it. He played in the snow while my husband and I dug out. He was where we left off on the drive way and I started to chip away at the wall of snow from the street.

My trail running friends were posting videos and photos of the Forbidden Drive Sunday afternoon. It looked like some kind of arctic wilderness. I saw one of them tromping through the powder like it was nothing at all. I had to do my own version of that because it looked like some kind of God kissed winter heaven that only a body in peak form could traverse.

I shoveled some more when I got home to widen the driveway since it was a bear to get out that morning. I took 3 Alleve when it was all done. I did nothing at all yesterday.
It is Week 4 and Day 1 of my Uplift training plan. I did something that would not have happened at Week 1. I ran a slow three and a half miles on the road AND my UpLift training. Today's workout was an Abs/Hiit combination. Google tells me that hiit training is high intensity intermittent (interval) training. I worked on my abs for three rounds and a plank circuit. If each plank based move were any longer than a minute it could probably be used to gain intelligence from me. I hope to continue both running and weight training towards peak-ish form so can eventually play a game of exploding heart with friends, aka winter trail running.
