04032018 – Run

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.

PC124752Minneapolis 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:
