Oh, treadmill. You are no beloved friend of mine, but when it’s 24 degrees out with a windchill of 6, you are somewhat acceptable.

It wasn’t so much the cold today, as it was the wind that made it a little uncomfortable. Brrrrrr. Had a new person join the group today, Jerry. Seems very nice; hopefully he’ll be back for more!

Big thick fog over DC this morning, coupled with a dead GPS watch made a run that felt a bit… shall we say… in the dark.

Well, I had PLANNED on running some more in the past week. But a nasty cold knocked me on my butt, and that was the end of that. Anyway, ran with the guys today and survived the experience. A little coughy/hacky now but not too bad all things considered. I think swimming is still right out, though.

Just realized I hadn’t included Monday’s treadmill run here. Anyway, I’d missed the weekend run due to a leg issue (I blame the three-hour Wolf of Wall Street), and ended up on my own for Monday. Decided it was pretty darn cold out (hello incoming polar vortex) and ran on the hated treadmill, instead.
