Whatever gene it takes to sit my ass on the couch I do not possess. And I am equally grateful that this is the way I roll!
This last week had everything from 20 degree long runs, rain and hail that hurt and a few nice days. In pics:
|Misery run! It was so cold and rainy that I couldn't push my car clicker to open the door. I was numb! I had to step on it!|
|10 minutes after the above picture. The show must go on! Again, this ham stretch rocks!|
|Go hard or go home! Clearly, I'm green.|
|The BEST cold weather jacket from my dear friends at Pearl Izumi. Thank YOU! It's called the track jacket.|

Overall, my training is going great. Aside from this week my weeks are right at 80. I think I may be onto something. I feel invincible. Very strong and excited to see how this training plays out.
Well, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! If you are fortunate enough to have a functioning, injury free body then take advantage and be grateful!! Get out there!!
