well there's cold and then there's cold. There's the saying "freeze your balls off" and then there is the actual freezing your balls off.  It was 16 this morning but with all winter weather, it's really the wind that that dictates the true cold.  It was -2.  It went from the 40s-50s the last few weeks to single digits pretty much over night. uncomfortable and breathing was tough. The lungs aren't used to the cold and dry and doing a workout I felt a little ill.

in the teens with lower wind chills.  Ice crystals form in my beard from breathing.  Oh well, high is 55 on Saturday. I expect to see some crazy weather swings this winter. As long as the wind/ice/snow behaves I'm game.

PM: nothing. I don't want to go over 90 this week

good workout this morning. We decided not to do the additional mile since it's still pretty early in the season which is probably a good idea. Most of my workouts have been light in volume with emphasis on consistent easy running and strides/core--perfect for base season. Come closer to February the stretched out long runs and workouts will get more intense.  Funny how easily 5 teens came on the track this morning though which is a great sign.

PM: off

I only wanted to do 10 this morning and then do a short hill sprint/stride session in the evening but my teammates pulle me out to 12 and with 87 on the week I didn't want to put mileage over that.  I'll probably hit 90 this coming week though
