A Frigid Morning

I did not want to get out of bed this morning. It was cold and I haven't turned on my heater since .... well last year sometime, so it was cold in the house and it was 48* outside! Last week when I visited my LBS, I bought a pair of gloves to go under my bike gloves. Well they work for running also I found out this morning.

My run was the normal Tuesday Thursday loop through the woods. I did find with it being cold, well cold for me, that it was more difficult to get my muscles loose. At the two mile mark I had shin splints. I pushed thru th e pain for the next two miles when finally the pain subsided. What is that a sign for,new shoes? I'm hoping it was just the cold.

I'm going to try to swim today at lunch time it is supose to be 76* by noon. Then I'll hit the weights at the fitness center tonight.

And here we were hoping that the trip up north would toughen you up a teensy bit.... ;-)

46 is not cold. Come to Minnesota. I'll show you cold. :)

Maybe it's time for new shoes? I thought shin splints were usually caused by increasing your volume too quickly. How many miles do you have on your current pair?

I found that in the cold, it takes much longer for my body to warm up. HR takes a lot longer to drop back to normal.

I love the way you are now qualifying the temp by saying "cold for me"! Good job

Oh stop it! 48* is a heatwave in WI in January. Good for you for getting out there in the "cold" and doing it though!
