Ran 6 in the morning with Kim on a cold breezy morning. The creepy crawly snow flurries from the wind blowing Saturday's snow across and down the road made for a pretty groovy effect. Looking forward to spring and nicer weather.

9:06/160

Later went to the gym for 30 min XT (10 min each stair/bike/elipt) and some core work.

Ran 6 this morning with Kim same route as yesterday and about the same temps but today the canyon winds were insane!!  About as bad as I've ever seen and made the run feel like a tempo run when going into the wind even though pace was 9-10 range.

9:14/164

Later did 30-min XT at work gym similar to yesterday.

Morning 6 miler very similar to the last 2 days, very WINDY!! It worked better for Kim to go later today so I was solo. Legs and hip feeling really good this week so just need to wait a couple more weeks or so for the cardio to catch up so my HR isn't so whacked out all the time.

8:58/168

Later went to gym for 30 min XT. Bikes were busy today so did 15 min each stairs and eliptical.

Nice 6-miler with Kim in the early morning. NO WIND today which made things especially nice!  Been a good running week so maybe I'll try 10-12 tomorrow.

9:11/152

Was going to go to the gym for some XT but been busy at work and I'm thinking I'll get more benefit from a nice nap at lunch.

Survived  my first double-digit run since mid-Jan. Woohoo!  Ran mostly with Kim and Doug B. The wind was back again but it wasn't too bad.
