What a difference a day makes. Yesterday at this time it was -25c / 13 below F. By nightfall it was about 0F. This morning... 33 or 34 F with some wind. SOME wind. Gusts of 60km/h or more than 30mph. The Chinook has arrived!<br><br>
I ran 5.3 recovery miles at a deliciously pokey pace.<br><br>
Have good ones all.
Tonight's conditions really made me question my sanity for even attempting it. But, I was out there.<br><br>
Nice efforts today everyone. Keep up the awesome work.<br><br>

Course: Normal 10 mile loop, but instead of turning left onto 62 at Carter, I turned around and did Carter, Brookside, Park loop again. Was forced to because once again, Burlington did not plow their sidewalks.<br><br>
Cold night for a run, and sidewalk conditions were nothing short of terrible. Not plowed in Burlington and in Wilmington they were icy and snowy.<br><br>
Felt okay but tired after the run. Literally felt like I had done 15 miles instead of 10 and change.<br><br>
In the data below, some description is in order. First, I missed the mile 3 marker, so I combined 3 and 4.<br><br>
Second, about 1/3 of a mile after the mile 5 marker, I hit the point where I had to alter the course. I was going to run to my normal mile 6 marker, but of course forgot to stop the watch at the normal mile 6 marker. Then I was forced to stop for traffic between my normal mile 6 marker and my normal mile 7 marker. I've measured it, and it is at mile 6.81. My nomal mile 7 marker tonight is at 7.43 miles due to the course change. I also missed my normal mile 8 marker, and went straingt to my normal mile 9 marker. In this case <b>normal</b> means based on my regular 10 mile loop. Normal in this case has nothing to do with the runner! <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br><b>Run Segments<br>

30 minutes on the treadmill. I meant to do more, but the combination of being distracted about needing to get packed to go to my mom's, and I think my little spill on the ice hurt me a bit more than I realized... I have a sore butt/hip that is givning me a funny little hitch in my get-a-long. I noticed I was limping more than running, and decided to end it early and go pack.
Thanks for the compliment!!<br><br>
truth be told, I've sold all of my Firm tapes, because NOBODY does it like cathe friedrich...honestly, she is an incredible instructor for anyone interested in getting in excellent X-training:<br>
weight training/core strength/flexibility/x-t cardio stamina, etc etc<br><br>
btw, my buttcheeks are killing me this morn from the leg drills<br><br>
My sis and I discovered her website via posts on the WWers fitness boards...and we're glad we did!
