Weekly Log 9-Feb to 15-Feb-2015

Guess I'd never be accused of
wearing parashorts.

1,000 yards in the pool. 

9 miles. Frigid early morning run on the beach.

8 miles. Needham, MA, buried in feet of snow.  Ran 4.5 miles outdoors between 6' high snowbanks, using sidewalks when I could, otherwise, skirting cars.  Came inside to run 3.5 miles on the Dreadmill.

6 miles.  Lunchtime Misquamicut run with Crutch in unusually balmy 32-degree weather, while fat snowflakes fell around us.

4 miles.  Cold run in the teens Friday afternoon.  Wilcox Park, plus part of Schonning 5K run.  Caught up with FiveK and Muddy, both of whom opted for an indoor run.

6 miles.  Originally was going to run long with the group, but couldn't turn out a request from Matthew's coach to run a workout on Narragansett hills instead.  15 minutes warm-up, 5 x (hard up Narragansett, jog down), 15 minutes cool-down.

6 miles.  White-out windy snowstorm run with FiveK and Matthew.  Soon after running from FiveK's place, a woman shoveling out her driveway yelled out to us, "Are you crazy!?", to which I could only reply, "Yes!".

at times)

5 miles.  Tacked on 5 more solo with Yaktrax in the afternoon.  11 miles running in the snow today.  I'm wiped.  Long live winter!
