12/9 - 12/15

Monday:  1.5 w/Jimmy on the roads.  I was barely able to sneak out for this run at about 5:45pm.  The roads were super icy as it snowed/freezing rain for most of the morning.  It was still misting as I ran which was helping to make everything slick.

Tuesday:  0.  I had a lot going on at school this morning which included a formal observation.  The night was a little crazy once again.

Wednesday:  3.5 w/Jimmy.  Monument Rd.  I ran this one right after school, so I didn't have to wear a headlamp.  Felt decent.  New shoes arrived today.  Brooks Cascadia 8, or is it 9?  Who knows.  They felt good.  My calves are still sorer than normal.  It must be because most of my runs have been on the roads.

Thursday:  4 w/Jimmy.  Walmart and back.  I got out at 5:15am and it was a brisk 14 degrees.  It had snowed a fresh, new inch during the night making everything purdy.  Great morning!  This was a medium effort run - probable mp knocked down to a very fast finish.  Feeling good.

pm:  3 w/Jimmy.  Hit the roads at 6:30pm for a rare December double.  Nice frosty night.

Friday:  4 w/Jimmy.  Walmart n back.  Same time as yesterday - a wee bit colder.  We lost power around midnight and it was back on at 3am.  The power line crew was installing a new pole near Walmart.  Thanks for getting the heat on for the babies so quickly!

Saturday:  8 w/Jimmy.  Broad Brook in Pisgah.  It was 8 degrees at the start of this run and 10 degrees when I finished.  I overdressed and sweated profusely after about the 20 minute mark.  I had the park to myself.  Deer season is over, and there isn't enough snow for the snowmobiles.  This should change today/tomorrow.

Sunday:  0.  My only time to get out today was spent shoveling.  We got around 13 inches according to my measurements.

Weekly Total:  24
