More miles than degrees club (Read 3875 times)

    Maybe squeaked another one in today.  7 miles with 5 F at the start but the temps were starting to climb with the south wind.

     

    NO!  I think I gain weight when it's bitterly cold.  I think I must eat more for the comfort!  Wish very much I had your "problem"!

      Yesterday I did a pretty uneventful 8 miles in 2 degrees.  It was pretty windy (gusts up to 28 MPH) but I didn't die or anything.  Unfortunately when I woke up this AM I realized I had frost bitten my nose.  Nothing major but damn you winter!

        Symptoms?  Peeling skin or something?

        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

          Got another. Just a bit 8.8 in 6 degrees. Also got some quality comments not fit for public forums from some poor sucker walking down the street. Made me feel good. Haha.

             

            Symptoms?  Peeling skin or something?

             

            Tip of nose is all red and hurts to the touch but it's too early for the peeling to begin.   Not really a deep burn or anything, probably only a couple of layers of skin and no permanent damage once it peels off.

              All 520 finishers of the Securian Half Marathon in Saint Paul, MN. 5 degrees and falling at the start. The wind was pretty stout as well. The winner came in at 1:14:08.

              One of the regulars from this site won the 50-59 age division as well in 1:23:19. I won't name names, but he can raise his hand if he'd like. Nice job.

                Set out to do 9 miles at 6 degrees. Watch froze from the cold and wasn't sure how far I was, so I turned around. Ended up being 7.5 miles finishing at 5 degrees.

                    Ten miles, ending temp 6 degrees.  Plus four inches of fresh snow on the trail.  Slow time, but judging by how my legs felt when I got done, it was a good workout.

                    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

                      Yes Mandy, it's a thing! 

                       

                      I guess I did it yesterday - 16 miles, ending temp 14. Would not have been too bad if it wasn't windy, but of course 20-25mph wind & blowing snow the whole time.

                        BTW, I think we ought to occasionally keep this thread alive in the spring with race reports.  I would be interested to see how our club members fare when it's time to race.  I've started thanking God for the bitter cold days with the sub-zero windchill, reasoning that my competitors stayed in bed.

                              I tell myself this as well.  It should work as long as you or your ilk are not my competitor! Smile

                                My 6.5 @ 3F puts me in but sounds paltry when thinking about our Minnesota friends who have a projected high of -8F today.
