Cool Cool Runners - January

Today I started the new year with a 6k run, it felt great...

Anyone else run to start the new year off right?

I finally managed to go round my course here twice and managed just under 6 miles. It was getting HOT on the second lap though, so I decided not to go for a 9 miler. Maybe another day! It would have helped if I'd remembered to put sun cream on, but it's not something I've had to do before a run for so long it slipped my mind and I thought I'd better go in to get some.

Here's to a good year of running for everyone!

I got a Garmin Forerunner for Christmas! I ran my neighborhood three miler today, which turns out to be a 2.85 miler I looked at my run on the map, and I'm clearly turning short on the cul-de-sacs

I was a slug over the holiday. Ate too much and worked out too little. I've been looking forward to getting back to normal.

Dee - remember also the Garmin can be off by a tenth or so. Lol when I ran TO the gym it was 3.08 and when I ran home it was 3.17...

I find my garmin will fluctuate by about 3% on repeated routes.

And did I mention the time I ran to a playgroup and left the garmin on the jogging stroller outside? Over 90 minutes it had "gone" 0.5 miles..lol

but I love the thing..addicted

It is absolutely gorgeous in New England today... full sun, mid 50's. I start a new running program today and was going to work on the treadmill, but I'm moving it outdoors. So after my weight work, I'll be hitting the track for my FIRST run of the new year. Wish me luck. I'll post the results later.

On New Year's Eve I did a fun run called the "Resolution Run". I only did the 5K, but it was nice to be out...

I was asleep by 10:30.... Neither me nor my DF are big New Year's eve party people.

Cheers!

Ali

I did an easy 2 miles yesterday, then proceeded to get really sick with chills, sweats, sore throat. Didn't go to work today. I'm supposed to run 6 on Sunday, and my dad had this same thing and it was a 48 hr bug, so hopefully I'll be well in time.

Ali, how is that baby? Does she run with you yet?

I have strep throat so the weekend runs are off. Hoping to be well in time for my half.

ohhh feel better Anne

Have a 10K this weekend,,,the forecast is cold windy and rainy

So if a damp cold feels colder than a dry cold and
a damp heat feels hotter than a dry heat..

when does it flip? at what temp does damp feel equal to dry?

Thanks, Anne. The antibiotics and anti-inflamatories are already making the throat feel better, and with luck the fatigue will pass soon.

I'm guessing the answer to your riddle is 68F. But damp always feels yucky to me. One of the great things about living in Tucson!

Hey I have a running buddy in Tucson (I was supposed to do the Tucson marathon in 2005 but I sprained my ankle) so there is a chance that someday I'll get down there for a race or something. I will do Tucson someday. I might do the half at Phoenix this year if I can convince dh, but you'll probably be preggo by then.
