I haven't been up to all that much here in the frozen tundra. It's SO COLD! Mornings have been in the negative numbers. Without the wind chill. Ugh! This was when I went out to tuck the ponies in for the night yesterday:
Gross is an understatement. Come on Spring, where are you?! The good thing about being stuck inside is that I'm getting all caught up with things in the house. Laundry is under control. Closets have been purged. And I finally put the treadmill together!
They say it's a two person job, but I got it done by myself. The hardest part was getting the base out of the box. I'm really happy with it! I haven't yet found where it will tell me my pace per mile, but I'm sure it must somewhere. I should probably read the manual...
Since this thing is finally up and running, so am I! (Pun fully intended) FINALLY! My first run was just a 2 miler. A slow two miler. With a little walk break in the middle. I'm so out of shape. My second run was better. I ran slow still, but did two full miles, walked for 2 and a half minutes, and then ran one more mile. So 3 total running miles. Baby steps friends!

I took a break from chores Saturday evening to make myself a Valentine's present or four:

It's nice to have some down time, but I am ready to get back to riding horses and seeing my friends. It's getting lonely in the house! What have you all been up to?
