Almost forgot to report on my long run today. 19.5 miles at a breezy 10 - 9 - 8 degrees F. The trail looks bleak and ready for winter to be over. Maybe I do, too.
Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
Slow and Steady
It's 89 degrees Fahrenheit right now. This thread is not for me.

I did 19 yesterday morning also, but the cold line was somewhere between you and me. It was a balmy 22 here.
We are fragile creatures on collision with our judgment day.
Well, HI!! I thought I was the only one on this thread for the longest time!! Welcome all you crazy winter runners. I've lost count of this years MMTD Points, but I have a total of 74 from last year into this year. Somewhere around 40 points this winter. My most difficult cold run was -10 with a -24 wind chill. I think that was my limit...beyond that it seems way too painful!

It was 23 below this morning when I woke up, probably a few degrees warmer when I went out for a six mile run. I am really sick and tired of being in this club. The long cold winter has really overwhelmed me.
Ten miles at zero. This club sucks ....
I think we need a club meeting someplace warm. Just sayin ..
I haven't posted every time I've done it this year, cause well over half my runs this winter have qualified me for the this club! However, if there's any bonus points for races, I did a half marathon this morning in 7F temps (-4F windchill).

"Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'" - Peter Maher
"Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run." -Monte Davis
It was a leisurely Sunday, so I had the luxury of waiting until it warmed up to a sultry 0F. 7.5 miles.
And it goes on, and on...
6.5M at -2F this morning.
Cheap and Evil Girl
If someone had told me in early February that we would still be having these temps in March, I think I would have slapped them. Only had time to do 7 miles today, temp 0 degrees. Forecast for tomorrow morning is -10, but they say there will be no wind. Trying to be thankful for small favors.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.
"Mental toughness is built by doing something that is hard over and over again, especially when you don't feel like doing it. Our society has conditioned us to believe that there should be no discomfort, to stop when we are uncomfortable. But the discomfort we feel when we're doing a challenging workout is an important part of the strengthening process." -Jim Afremow, The Champion's Mind: How Great Athletes Think, Train, and Thrive
It got above zero here today! We are making progress. I ran 7 miles in 4° with not much wind, so it was pretty nice. It is supposed to get into the double digits tomorrow and I hope I am out of the club until November after today. A guy can dream.
11 miles today @ 0 Fahrenheit degrees. It was bearable since there was no wind. I still can't wait till Summer though.
-8 degrees, 12 miles. I'd still rather run in 0 degrees than 100 degrees. #tryingtobepositive
I'd still rather run in 0 degrees than 100 degrees.
I agree with you on that, and I grew up in Phoenix. But still i would like to be able to occasionally run when it is somewhere in between those two extremes.
