  1. RUN
    Runch! 6.22 mi 00:51 08:16 pace

    Sweet runch. Just a little runaround. Nothing fancy, just enjoyed some tunes and ignored the watch as best I could. Felt better than I'd expected after yesterday's intervals. Good stuff!

    Frosty Meander 21.5 km

    Trees were all frosty looking this morning, managed to freeze my toes and my fingers, but whatever, the road is still fairly clear. Definitely icy patches on the path to be mindful of, but nothing ... read more

    Snowed last night. I decided to greet what is the first moment of actual winter with a show of force - every other 800ms I aimed for a 5k race pace or better. Take that Winter. I am ready for you! ... read more

      You are so speedy Barb! Excellent work today! I'd say you slapped Winter in the face! Good for you! :-)

      Yes, the ice creaks and groans a lot. As for warming your hands, you can get these hand warmer packs, in fact I saw an article in Popular Science about how to make your own using common household chemicals.

      Of course, that should read "loved that *show*..." although I'm sure there are lots of loveable sows out there.

      Saw the articles during the anniversary of his run. At the time I couldn't understand why he didn't have a better artificial leg than that thing he suffered on for so long!

      Nice ride and educating. I think its good for kids to know about the realities of life and death, even if it is sad.

      Nice warmup to the day, Barb. This whole L thing could go on for a while...this is still my life and my youngest is 9. Seems like he still winds up coming into our bed at sometime during the night every night. :-)

      A close friend had the same problem... kid needed more attention than your usual kid but got it and is fine now (adult). But exhausting for the parents... mother had to work hard to wean him off constant demands, because she said that "he's too needy. I won't always be around. He has to learn." But that's after the age of about 3-4. Anyway, glad you got some exercise!

      Nice run (OK, ride), except for the appetizing sight and the prospect of snow to come! Though I kind of like snow, the first couple of runs in it. After that though, it gets old.

      Nice meander miles, Barb. Ice already? 24C and very humid here this morning, I peeled off my singlet after 1.5 miles and ran the rest of my run shirtless.
