  1. RUN
    good Heat(ish) Wave 4.02 mi 00:43 10:37 pace

    37 degrees! Only needed a couple of layers on top and bottom and I was a happy runner. Chris and I met up in the late morning and did an out and back route that has us splashing in puddles. It&#... read more

    good Yeti Hair 4.1 mi 00:45 10:53 pace

    About 4 degrees this morning for my run with Melissa. We were sporting Yeti hair (a term I got from Chris; it's when all the wisps of hair sticking out from the hat turn white when the sweat ... read more

      I love Yeti hair. I, however, did not have it for my run on Saturday. Not to brag or anything, but I was actually SWEATING. It got up to 22 whole degrees by the time I started!

    good Proud Turtle 3.5 mi 00:40 11:21 pace

    Problems on the app reading system + the boys having a 2 hour school delay because of heat broken in the school = topsy turvy start to the day. I spent an hour on the phone with the U trying to ge... read more

    good Bonus Run 3.5 mi 00:37 10:27 pace

    I wasn't planning to run today but the temps bopped up to 30 degrees and the sun came out and there was some melting on the road, so around 4 p.m. I shut down the application reading for the d... read more

  5. RUN
    alright Taking Over the Road 4 mi 00:46 11:30 pace

    Almost no one out this morning, so Chris, Melissa, Cooper the dog and I spread out across the road for our run. I had the yak trax on and needed them. packed snow and ice for most of the way. A ... read more

  6. RUN
    good Hello Sunshine! 4 mi 00:44 10:54 pace

    Warmest day in a long time, so Chris and I moved plans for a team-up Thursday run to today (because naturally it's supposed to snow 8 more inches tomorrow). It was around 20 degrees, the sun ... read more

      great attitude. Glad you got this one in. The snow needs to go someplace where it's welcome (like Utah!).

    good TM @ the Y 2 mi 00:19 09:35 pace

    Desperate for a run today so I went to the Y. Unfortunately the cardio rehab class had decided to take over the card room (usually they do exercises on the basketball court, doing calisthenics and... read more

      now THAT's a zippy run! I like how you opportunistically approached this whole affair!

    good Holy IBC, Batman! 3.61 mi 00:40 11:02 pace

    I knew the really cold temps would make a run easy to skip. (How did I know this? Because I was planning to run yesterday and decided to skip it because it was too freakin' cold.) So I wise... read more

      IBC!!!! I understand, though I've been mostly spared that condition this year due to our bizarrely warm winter. I am glad you broke up the cabin fever with this run.

  9. RUN
    good TM @ the Y 3 mi 00:31 10:13 pace

    Woke up super stuff from yesterday's arc trainer workout and I was still feeling tight at the start of this run. So I started slowly at 5.2 mph and worked my way up to 6.5 mph before cooling ... read more

    alright Like Running on the Beach. B... 3.5 mi 00:40 11:23 pace

    It was really nice to run outside so that's a plus. But running on packed snow in yak trax is kind of like running on the beach. My legs were exhausted from the addl tension and muscle work.... read more

  11. RUN
    good Yep, TM@ the Y again 3 mi 00:30 10:00 pace

    Did intervals on the TM today, alternating between 5 and 7 mph. I liked the variety and I liked "beating" the rude dude who was running on the next TM.

  12. RUN
    good TM @ the Y 3 mi 00:30 10:02 pace

    Too much snow to run outside so getting the runs in any way I can, which usually means the treadmill. Lots of people in the gym this morning so I had to sign up for a machine, wait and then start ... read more

  13. RUN
    good Pre-Yoga TM Run 2.25 mi 00:24 10:26 pace

    Busy day today, fitting everything in but just barely. Short run, then shower, then yoga in order to make a school board-related meeting in time.

  14. RUN
    good Back to the TM 2.25 mi 00:23 10:01 pace

    Snuck in a quick one this morning while the boys were at Sunday school. Left time to do strength training work (mostly abs) because I've been so lame about that. Run felt good and 2.25 miles... read more

  15. RUN
    good Group Run 4.49 mi 00:50 11:09 pace

    A group run this morning, with Chris, Melissa and Misha. Nice to start off the weekend this way (esp. with Finn's pre-b'day dinner tonight of grilled cheese and short rib sandwiches) and... read more

  16. RUN
    tired Get To The Point (And Back) 4.28 mi 00:45 10:25 pace

    I felt like I never got warmed up during this run. My joints felt heavy with cold and I struggled to breathe. It was around 20 degrees so it wasn't super cold, but when I had the neck gaiter... read more

      oh how I understand the way the desire to not have your sweat freeze on your back can overcome the burning desire to walk! Well done.

    Alleluia! So good to be back outside after a couple of weeks of running on the TM. It felt hard but in a way that felt good. Happy to have clear roads and temps warm enough that I just wore capr... read more

  18. RUN
    good TM @ the Y 3 mi 00:31 10:23 pace

    Hoped to run outside this morning because the temps are creeping up just above freezing. But it was black ice city, so I packed my TM running gear and went to the Y while C. was at Sunday school (... read more

    good TM @ the Y 4 mi 00:42 10:22 pace

    I am really missing long runs. And while 4 miles isn't that long, it's longer than the 3s that I've been clocking on the TM lately, so I'll take it. I got on the ARC trainer a... read more

    good TM@ the Y 3 mi 00:30 10:01 pace

    Sneaking these Y runs in when I can, as the roads are still not safe for running. I had a brunch date with friends later in the morning, so it was fun to pound out a few miles knowing that there w... read more
