      I really have to give you high fives over running in this ridiculous weather. Frankly, I give up. I can't stand to be out there, just walking to my car. So, props to you for a really great tempo run, my friend.

      Argh! That cough sounds horrible Barb - I'm so sorry it's hanging on like this. :-( Smart to skip the 10 mile tempo today for sure. I absolve you of ALL guilt for taking a few rest days! Let that body recover! And yes: GO VERN!!!! :-D

      "Doc says I have a cough"... did you say, "HELLO YES, that's why I'm here" ? LOL. I say take a couple days and just give the lungs a break. Or take it easy - if that works. Sorry about the $5. Feel better soon, Barb!

      Yep. Rest. Look after that cough. I'd seriously just stop running until you feel better, but I KNOW that's asking the impossible of you. So. 3 easy miles is kind of a good thing. :)

      Sam and I were talking about how you still manage to get these runs completed in the awful conditions you've had and still have great results. But really take care of yourself, Barb! That cough doesn't sound good. Hopefully the doc can help!

    • Vera L.

      Sounds like you are adapting to the cold weather since you felt warmer today. Could the sore elbows be due to the extra layers pinching at your elbows while they're bent? Maybe try shaking out your arms a few times on the next run and see if it helps. Great work today!!

      I never read a clause for skipping runs because of weather! Aren't you the man that told me all of the work could be done with L in the stroller? Can't see how temperature would be any different. ;)
