Lots of fresh powder for this morning’s run! I think there was about 4 inches of fresh snow, but I still wanted to hit the hills of the trails. There was enough snow that I ran with a skier and his dog for a short bit! Look for him in the one picture!
The workout was a 6×300. Given the snow it was more about effort level than a specific pace for me. It was fun to play in the snow a little bit too! The total run was 3.94 miles in 43:33.
Minneapolis got 17.5 inches of snow on Saturday. That’s quite a wallop we are still collectively trying to dig out of. Up until now, I’d been quite content without a snow blower, but now I’m thinking about it. My dad offered me his, but its 10 hours away in Ohio. He also offered my his 4 wheeler with a blade on it, that’d be fun!
So the question is, how do you count snow shoveling as a workout? I spent almost 2 hours yesterday scooping and throwing snow and another 45 minutes today (thanks to the townhouses in my alley for destroying my awesome shoveling job). My shoulder is a little sore and I definitely felt it in my core. So is it a cardio/core workout? Or just core?
How do you record snow shoveling in your training log? Do you record it at all?
I could just get one of these:
