Catching up...

Man, it is COLD out there...

Tuesday 10 Mile run Statistics...

High Temp = 16 degrees F.

4 - Layers on my upper body.

1 - Set of ear warmers.

1 - Full head mask.

2 - Sets of tights.

2 - Pair of gloves.

1 - VERY COLD NOSE and some compressed lungs...

After 18Miles indoors over the weekend because the temperature was in the single digits, I told myself that after that experience I will try everything that I can to be outside as much as I can when possible. So, last Tuesday I went out there and put down 5.75Miles outside and I finished the rest inside. At least running inside got my body and nose to warm up pretty fast...

I was reading the FIT CHICK's Blog at Bycicling Magazine (you know she participated in IM Cahmpionships in Kona this past October after winning her age group at Louisville's race) during the first part of the year and she was talking about breaking her new year's resolutions very quickly. I thought, at the time, that mine of posting more often would be no problem... but as you can see I am not doing it as often as I should. If you want an excuse I have one...! Because my last post was about January's Athlete of the month and you know as well as I do that the more exposure I can provide to these inspiring stories the better... YES! That is definitely the reason why I've fallen off my new year's promise during this first part of January.

Just returned today from a 15 Mile run from my house as we had the first HEAT WAVE of 2009 come through. We climbed up to a balmy 47 degrees and it was all I hope for... slush fest as the snow is melting and we have no choice but run through it. Needless to say I had to treat my cold feet with some nice warm water afterwords... man that felt sensational.
So, between diaper changes and watching after almost crawling Junior I continue to fit in my trainig when possible. It is been a challenge but one I take on with great pride. I have to get those STOP THE CLOT red-polka dots out there to spread the word... believe me last Saturday the people working out at my gym saw nothing but polka-dots throughout the first 10 Miles because after that I had no choice but to change my dripping wet shirt as people at the track were complaining about drops of my sweat all over the place... If you don't know this about me already you should know that I can sweat like there is no tomorrow...

I have a couple of interesting posts coming up so stay tuned!

Thanks for reading,

The Clot Buster
