  • I’m glad I made it to the pool this week. I had a slight cold and was worried it would feel horrible, but I felt great! And was able to do bilateral breathing again! Ha, I hate mentioning what other people are up to at the gym, but the guy in the lane next to me was quite the splasher! He smacked the water with each stroke and if I happened to be breathing on that side, I’d get a ton of water in my face. Ha ha, fun times.
  • No intervals this week, but I did do a short tempo. I want to gauge where my legs are at for the half I have in three weeks.
  • I was not planning an indoor long run on Saturday, but we had rain, temps in the 30s, and constant 20 mph winds with gusts in the 30 mph range. Eek! Since I was trying to get over a cold, I figured an indoor run would be better for me.
  • Then we had freezing rain Sunday morning which made me nervous about driving to class, but the roads were fine (phew) and all the students made it! Woo hoo! Then we all got home before the freezing rain turned to snow. This weather, I tell ya. I did a treadmill run and felt pretty great. Yay for that!

    Well I hope your cold goes soon. The splashing is annoying but seems to be common ha ha.

    Man your weather is crazy I hope it improves soon too. I’m ending up more worried about the heat here. At least when I go up on the trails…its hotter up there.

      Thanks! I think it is!

      That person made me wonder if I splash that much. Like, three lanes over, and my towel was wet from them.

      The trails are hotter? Are they not very shaded?
