      Treadmills aren't for wimps... you just need to be a little desperate. Nice job getting it done, Vickie!

      Glad to see you are back into the groove, Vickie. I'm liking the cold too. Let's hope we don't need snow shoes any time soon.

      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.

      The cold is a great motivator to keep moving along. Nice job, Vickie.

      Oh, how I do hate scanning my HR readings for spikes and then wondering if they are a real problem or just some electronic malfunction. I have AF, but luckily it only kicked in when my HR was low eg in bed, and now I'm on pills I haven't had an incident for over 2 years. Not a good memory, though, so I sympathise with your problems.
