          We are fragile creatures on collision with our judgment day.

            I only run indoors when it's "more miles than degrees" temps around here. I'm not going to risk falling to the same fate as this poor frozen dead fellow:

                I finally got the chance to post here!  8 degrees this morning, and I ran 12 miles Smile Fun times!

                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

                  Finally got a chance to join the club! Ran 6 miles, it was 0 F when I started and 2 F when I finished.

                    At 6:00 this evening as I was pulling up to the trailhead, the weather came on the radio and said the temperature was 11°F; I was already planning on my typical nighttime 10 mile trail run so I thought, "What the heck..."

                     

                    The first couple of miles were good in that the new snow was pretty well packed and made for decent speed, however, beyond that the top couple of inches, while reasonably dense, were fresh/untrammeled, and that slowed my progress.  As I approached the 5-mile mark I almost turned around as I was becoming aware that the snow cover was causing me to expend a lot more energy than normal and I was going to be approaching my limits fairly soon.

                     

                    The next mile beckoned and I kept going.  As I was approaching the 6-mile mark I started worrying if Mr. Murphy and/or Mother Nature were going to pull a fast one on me and cause it to warm up a degree, so I put in an extra quarter of a mile before I turned around.  I got back to my car at 8:17, cold and fully spent and anxious to get home and check the weather to see if I qualified for this club.

                     

                    It seems Mr. Murphy got the last laugh, according to both weather.com and accuweather.com, the OAT was a balmy 17°F at 8:30.  Grrrr.  Looks like I need to "trust but verify" when it comes to the weather forecast on NHPR.  Sad

                     

                    Maybe next time.  Smile

                      You'll get it next time Shipo.  NH may be a small state, but the temperature fluctuates wildly.  And then there's that weird thing where the snow stops at the Hooksett Toll.  Sometimes NB and sometimes SB, but always at the toll.  But I digress...

                       

                      I'm getting closer. 11* when I headed out this evening.  I'm not up to 11 miles yet, and I'm not about to start while I'm streaking, but I'm now confident I've got the appropriate clothing to join the club once I get a single digit opportunity.  And I did do more miles (4.3) than the feels like temp (4*), so that's something.

                       

                      Bring on the cold!

                        It was 11°F when you went out tonight?  That's what I thought too (per the 6:00 PM NHPR weather report); what was your source?

                          Grrr.....  was hoping to join you this morning, but it was 8 degrees and I was only running 5.

                            Returned to northern MN last night from balmy DC!  DC was  mostly in the 30s, the weather channel made it sound worse than it was, IMO.  I ran from my hotel to the washington mall area but those miles don't qualify for this.

                            Today:  -2 degrees, 5 mph wind, feels like -8 degrees at 11 am; ran 3 miles around the neighborhood on the snow-packed road.  NICE!!

                              15 in 8 this morning, I think this is my first qualifying workout.

                              Know thyself.

                                This is my first time in the club but since I got rid of my gym membership it won't be the last

                                it wasn't too bad it was just annoying when my water bottle froze and I couldn't get any water to come out.
