Yesterday, Monday, was a rest day.
I did not get to rest like I wanted.
|On my way to work|
It snowed. A lot. And when I got to work, the first thing that I had to do, for the first two hours of my shift, was shovel snow. Non-stop.
|Thank gawd for good Sorel boots! I shoulda tucked my jeans into my boots!|
I had to look online and see how many calories shoveling snow burned. I guess Livestrong says 200 calories per half hour for a 140 pound person. I am over 140 pounds and I shoveled for 2 hours. So a guesstimation of over 800 calories? I sure felt like it by the end of the night!
I was a sweaty mess, and all I wanted after was a really good hot chocolate. Not the sugary Swiss Miss crap.

I had a packet of apple cider, so it had to do to warm me up.
I was tired by the end of the night. My upper back really felt like I got a good workout. I was praying for no DOMS because I had a run to do today – Tuesday. I slept amazing Monday night.
Luckily, thankfully, I had very mild muscle soreness. My glues and my upper back needs some foam rolling and stretching love.
I went to my clubhouse and slogged out 4 miles.

Are you on Instagram? Do you like to shovel snow? I don’t mind it but I have to have the right gear, like snow boots and quick dry clothes. What was your workout today/yesterday?
