      Corporate cutting back. We have several weekly staffed run events & our club was told to cut back one. Plus they're constantly cycling classes in & out. We're hoping to restart with daylight savings time when we can run in daylight & outside again.

      Strength is the last to go in the progression of lost fitness. You will lose speed first, then endurance, then strength. So although you missed some classes, your strength is still there! Good for you!

      Although the day started out at 7 degrees I didn't run until noon when the wind had disappeared and the temp went up to a balmy 40! Turned out to be a beautiful sunny day.

      You'll figure it out, Vickie. I believe some people, me included, go through a change as winter sets in. Maybe you are fighting an instinctive hibernation mode... or something like it.

      Thanks Alan. Never thought of that but that kind of makes sense to me. That would explain also all my "nesting instincts" that have come into full force recently - cleaning closets, cooking - hope that keeps up!

      That was a really fine workout, Vickie. Hill Repeats are tough. And for sure the gloves when it's below 40°. When 20° and below, I also wear a handkerchief around my face to cover my nose and upper lip. Helps warm the air I breathe.
