    I did 6 miles this morning... 38 and a cold wind in some parts, but it felt invigorating. I wish my time was better (1:10). Perhaps I will attempt to grow taller this week, I'm getting tired of running on stubs!

    So that's 98.55 miles for last week. That's 3.76 maris.

    Ran last night after all - 5.6 miles. Blech.

    RnR - once upon a time, a long time ago, I was a dirty girl too. Still have my last cross-country mtb (1999 specialized stumpjumper M4 with a spectacular yellow paint job named Sally) and I take her out once in a while. I can't believe how chicken I am now on descents.

    Had my first run in freezing rain today! I just couldn't face schlepping to the gym and . . . I'll be honest . . . I had new running shoes. There's no better motivation for me than the chance to wear new shoes!

    Anyway it was raining very lightly, and this morning's snow and sleet (first of the winter!) had melted off the sidewalks. So perhaps not as badass as I make it sound.

    Only made it 30 minutes (probably 3 miles or more) - my non-high-tech tights were getting pretty damp and cold. But I'm glad I went - now I have cute pink cheeks for the rest of the day!

    Three for me tonight in 36 degree pouring rain. Just lovely. Better than the 17 degree mountain bike last night. My feet were frozen.


    Rock On!

    Nice work RnR. How you feeling today?

    I ran hills on the TM at work. AAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHH! I must get outside soon. But it's too icy right now to run safely outdoors. First priority is no injuries.

    I ran 5.35 miles for 55 minutes (10:30 minute mile) today! My longest run yet. Too bad I wasn't outside!

    Got on the treadmill at lunch and ran.

    Told myself I would do 3-4 miles. I was feeling pretty good so went on to do 5.35 miles.

    I would have done 5.50 even, but the dang treadmill stopping working on me.

    Yea, about 2.50 miles into it, my pinky toenail dug into the side of the toe next to it... there was blood afterwards.

    It hurt to run on that foot, but I reminded myself the difference between pain and suffering and tried to block it out.

    I also got this weird chafing under my arms I have never had before. Luckily, I noticed that pain once I stopped. What can I do about this problem? Body glide my underarms I suppose?

    My legs held strong running, but gosh I'm hurting now!

    Hi Wahine. I am not feeling too bad today. My legs are a little tired, like if I run up the stairs. The important thing was that I felt good during the run.
    I am taking off today.

    easy run, and swim tomorrow.

    Be very very proud of the underarm chafing. It's because of your huge lats!! And yes body glide works well for this.

    Hhhuuummm... really? Cause I thought it was from my flabby triceps.

    Next time, body glide goes on. I guess I never got it before, because I have been running outside with long sleeves on, vs. just a sports top.

    BTW- Wahine, if you could please start the new running thread starting for 1-22. I will be out of town in Floride from 1-20 to 1-24 and the laptop is staying at home. THANKS!

    Ummm... if we only count the "run" part of my run-walks, I think I did about 1/2 mile this week. Plan to do another 1/4-1/2 tomorrow.

    Got new shoes (beloved Brooks, the best running shoes in the universe for my goofy feet) and want to break them in tomorrow with a GOOD run-walk.

    Edit: Saturday a.m. Did about 1/4 mile total run this morning in my fresh Brooks Ariels. Happy Knee, Happy Knot!
