<i>In the bleak midwinter,<br>
frosty wind made moan,<br>
Earth stood hard as iron,<br>
water like a stone;<br>
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,<br>
snow on snow,<br>
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.</i><br><br>
Well, not so long ago. Try today. Snow on snow on snow. We don't get the big storms, we get 5 days straight of a couple of inches. Christmas snow. And they don't plow here, they wait for the Chinook. It makes for slogging.<br><br>
A bit more than 6 miles today in a pokey one hour. Slower than recovery pace with hills. The bleak midwinter indeed.<br><br><br><br>
Hope the lucky socks work for you Meri!

Nose was ok <img alt="icon_cheers.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif"><br>
Grizz- the socks are SealSkinz. They are waterproof, 100%. So i did the elliptical with them, with a sock under. Then i put my feet in the tub! I thought my feet were wet (i think more steamy from the warm water) and i was all pissed off (these were very expensive) so i took them off and my sock was dry! lol. So then i was confused. I stuffed a sock with paper towels and then put it in the tub and under the faucet and it was dry! so i guess they work <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

nothing...I'm feeling pissy and lazy.<br>
I don't want to lift, and you can't make me.<br><br>
It's just as well tho, since I'd have to lift-eat-shower-beautify-turn around and head back to school for more p-t conferences.<br><br>
By not working out, I can overeat during lunch and sit on kickrunners.com lurking and posting without having to rush around.<br><br>
so....not pumping iron today is a good thing, yes?

8 miles on the treadmill, made myself stick to my easy pace. For whatever reason I enjoyed this run more than any in recent memory. I just felt happy and relaxed and loose.

Last night I went to put in an hour on the TM to make up for the fact that the AM got cut short to 45 minutes. Somehow I just didn't have it in me, and my legs were tight - I bagged after 30min and did some pre-hab (tendon health) leg lifting stuff. Meh!<br><br>
This morning I got in the full hour, though I backed the intensity off a little bit.<br><br>
I have (and use) Sealskinz too. I'm convinced that they actually do soak through when I go through open water a lot, but they're better than any alternative I know. They feel a little like wearing wetsuit booties.

I just don't have it in me to run in sleet and wind

Ah, I see a mix of nice runs, recovery days, and a fella fighting an illness. Get well, soon.<br><br>
Today is the third straight day of above-freezing temps. Finally. 45F and breezy at 6:30pm. Lucky to find a break in the rain and ran outside.<br><br>
10 miles total<br>
5mi warm-up (46 min)<br>
3mi @ tempo pace (6:45/mi, or 20:20)<br>
2mi cool-down (18 min)<br><br>
Ran on the outdoor road course with one training partner. Feel real good now.<br><br>
The hammy was barking today. Going back to diligent PT stretches/exercises for a few days to loosen it up.

7 miles in the chilly clear evening air. The group ran by the marina around. After the time change on March 11, we will start the loop to Seal Beach again. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
Hamstrings feel tight, I need to stretch them while I watch American Idol. <img alt="icon_farao.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_farao.gif">
