My first run on the first day of spring..... (Read 60 times)

Gator eye


    SUCKED!

     

    13 degree's with a 15 mph wind, I froze my butt off. Angry   Again

     

    It's been so cold for so long I think I forgot how to sweat. Where's the warmth? At this point any run above 32 degree's would be a heat wave.

      I made the mistake of looking at the temps at this time last year: 82 degrees. Today's high? 30. Spring, my ass.

      They'll tell you that failure is not an option.  That's ridiculous.  Failure is always an option.  It is the easiest and most readily available option.  It's your choice though.

      Super B****

        Guess I ran in a heat wave then -- it was 34!

         

        I hate winter.  Sad

          Actual temp this morning 9 ... feels like -10. Didn't even bother with outside - resorted to 10 on the TM this morning. Spring? I don't think so...

          Train smart ... race smarter.

            Makes me glad I'm still in recovery mode. Another SRD for me. :-)

              10 miles on a treadmill or 10 miles in -10?

               

              That's a tough decision either way you go

                We got eight inches of snow yesterday and it was still on the ground this morning. Well played, March. Well played.

                So I'm currently sitting with a bag of frozen corn in my ass.

                  And that is precisely why I do most of my runs on an indoor track all winter and into the spring - it's well lit, warm, no wind, music playing over the sound system, and lots of other people around to keep me company... Big grin

                    That was funny!

                     

                    It was so cold here for so long that the recent streak of mid to high 20's we have been getting has been a God send. 

                     

                    My, what wind chills in the single digits and teens will do to expectations!

                        Six months of the year, it's a beautiful 50F in my garage, when I run on my TM. Nah nah... Big grin

                              It's so hard for me to picture you guys having all this cold weather.  It's been spring for a while here now.  Get warm soon!
