    Wasn't sure what to do with myself today while I regroup and figure out what is next...so I did what seems to be the natural thing to do on Wednesdays, went to say hi to Delores.

    Rainy Meander 4.39 mi 00:40 09:02 pace

    Raining, which meant it was fairly warm. But the huge puddles everywhere meant soakers galore!

      I had that a month and a half ago... beautiful... the air glittering with ice crystals. Sounds like a great run, and hope you heal up nicely over the next few days!

      Sometimes it's a plus having lower expectations-- it leaves more room to be pleasantly surprised!

    Yesterday 3.01 mi 00:27 09:06 pace

    Supposed to be 6 at 7:30/mi but it wasn't.
    The snirt on the path was awful. I gave up, and also my shoes I swear are getting heavier.
    Guess I'm still not 100% yet...

      Running in that stuff is really good for you, it gives you power and control. I am envious -- I saw a woman doing her intervals in the snow as I drove to work today. (5" of slippery crap the whole way including on the 401 where there were ridges ploughed across the road making the car buck and slew).

    Took myself to the wind tunnel and skated. It was a nice way to spend the time and miles. Though I could have done without the head wind. It's not easy to battle a headwind on ice! ;)
