Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't kept up posting....life sometimes gets in the way.
I found a great deal on cold apparrel for anybody looking. Starting yesterday Sear's has Nordick Trac men's medium warmth cold gear on sale for 11.99 each piece! I thought I would buy a small but didn't find any so I purchased a medium pair of tights and mock turtleneck. The shirt is a little big, but the tights fit good. (Tells you which end of me is larger ) I wore them on my run this morning in 15 degrees. I wore the set, a Nike fleece crew neck, a pair of Under Armor socks, a pair of wool/acrylic socks, and a lined sweatshirt hoodie. Oh and my fleece headband and gloves. My body wasn't overheated, but was warm enough that my hands and feet were not cold. Yay! I was worried that just the tights wouldn't be enough but they were. At that price I think I'll will stop over and get another set. I can pass on the higher priced tech clothes.
I ran W3 days 1-3 last week and used my Jeff Galloway 1:1 intervals on Saturday for 3.8 miles. This morning I ran the C2 10K W4D1 which is a run/walk of 8/1. I felt like I could have gone on and on. But I am still a penguin. Saturday's pace on a fairly clear path was about 13:40. This morning in the dark and snow covered sidewalks and streets was about 15:10. But I am after endurance not speed right now and I love running outside.
Hope everyone is having a great run today. Stay toasty!
Hey everyone, how's it going?
I took some time off over the holidays. Not completely off, but I think I ran three or four times in about three weeks. I'm just now getting back to my usual training schedule, which has me doing a long run this weekend of 4 miles. The weather here today was perfect. Gloomy but the rain stopped for awhile and it was 52 degrees. Lovely.
Anyway, I just wanted to check in and see how everyone's handling the holidays and the snow.
Started C25K for the third time October 1st.
