I hear ya man, I randomly volunteered for a 6.5 mile race and the cold made it really hard to keep my breathing in check. Not to mention all the damn hills. This race took place in Selinsgrove, PA. Came in 63rd out of 140 ppl with 55mins completed. Brutal course through the country side.
Week 2 day 7. Scheduled it for yesterday but the late stay at the drill hall messed that up. Work has a laundry list of problem machines for me today. Didn't want to skip another day of running so I ran on my lunch break. 3.25 done outside. Cold as shit!
Week 3 day 7 with new GPS Watch. My garmin forerunner finally bit the dust after 6 years of hard use to include the desert of Iraq. I am addicted to GPS watches. They make running so much easier. Didn't want to wait for one to come in the mail, so off I went to Best Buy. They had the garmin 405. It doesn't come with the option of not having a heart monitor. So I bought it with the heart monitor. Don't know if I'll ever use that. Maybe some day. Anyhow, the watch was around $260. Did not want to spend that. Not sure how I feel about the watch yet. First use and a lot different than the 205. It does have wireless link to my laptop though. Like that.
Week 4 day 7 half done. Yes, I said half done. Without going into the discusting details of today's events, lets just say I had flue like symptoms. My wife was pissed that I even attempted to run. Well, got half way done and had to call it quits. Feel like crap. At least I tried. This week is a cool down week and tomorrow is a rest day. Hopefully I won't have too much trouble sticking with the schedule the following week. If I have problems, I'll have to repeat this past week. BLAH!
