    Marching On...

    Hi guys,
    thought I would get the March thread going. We had 6 inches of fresh snow yesterday so it covered up all the uneven frozen footsteps on the trails where we run. We did a run this morning and had to break trail the whole way. Nice to not have the frozen footsteps, but tough, tough going on the legs! But what a beautiful day to be out. Six miles of snowy goodness.

    Gorgeous photos, R-n-R! Almost makes me long for snow. Almost!

    I've been enjoying my runs on the track. I set a PR for my 5K time last Tuesday, and on Thursday, I did a run/walk at a slower pace, 4.5 miles total, 3.5 of that running. I hope to start increasing my mileage now that I am back from having a wretched cold that kept me out of commission for almost four weeks.

    RnR ... wow, looks beautiful, but my Raynaud's-afflicted toes are turning blue just looking at it ...

    Emily, so glad you're getting back on track!

    Wednesday was just as brutally hot as forecast and I was just as unprepared as I expected. Being hydrated isn't enough to prepare for a tough run in 30 warmer than what I'm acclimated to. I had to stop and nearly puke halfway through the marathon pace segment and couldn't even finish the threshold pace segments, and even with a partial workout I was trashed for the rest of the day and into the next. Bleh. It's supposed to be back to normal temps for tomorrow's tough workout, and thank goodness for that considering the time change ...

    Now see, as soon as you mention warm temps of any kind....I turn blue. Well you get what I mean. I do NOT do well in heat. I would much rather go out and run when it is 9 degrees.

    Oak, that sounds like tough going, and I do not envy you.

    Great job Emily!!!

    The only time I've been able to engage in running for a few months has been in cooler weather. It took me years to acclimate to riding in hot weather, but running in anything over 70 pretty much did me in. The one race I ran was 98 degrees and humid. Worst possible situation for me.

    We suffer through it from May-Sept. I try and get out as early as possible to beat the heat as much as possible. Don't like at all though. Blech. The past two summers we have spend most of our training time running and biking, in the woods. Sometimes better because you are out of the sun, sometimes worse because it can be very close, no breeze.

    Blech just thinking about it. Blech.
