    Hi guys! 

    Its been really cold here again, my long run on Sunday of 3.5 hours was at -6°c but thankfully it was a clear, calm day so it ended up quite enjoyable.

    @GlowGirl that's great to hear I hope you continue to feel those gains!

    @Fmeindabrain nothing worse than a forced break from running, but never too far from getting back to it.

    @NewfieintheUSA great stuff, what goals have you set for the race?
    Wow. That is a long time to be running in the cold. At least it wasn’t windy. That is the worst. I’m glad everyone is doing well.

    If the wind isn't strong, you get nice and warm, if dressed warmly, after a mile or two at that temp.  First mile is usually not awesome.
    If the wind is blowing, that is cold.
    Was 43 here this AM, which feels toasty for this time of year.  Sweat a lot, which felt good.
    3 miles ans pushed some toward the middle, feel good.  My VO2 is still down, need to get my wind back after two weeks of rest.  Calf feels 👍. 

    Need to pick my calendar for this year

    GG, do you want to join me for a NYC area run?  Would pick a 5 or 10 k?
    Thinking about that GW Bridge run again in June.

    Glad the calf is feeling better. I would do a 5k - is that what the GW Bridge is? Let me know. That would be fun.

    Thanks.
    They have both, I believe.  Ran the 10k last year but could do the 5k or we could each do one of the races....they run at around the same time...one just obviously takes about twice as long.  :lol:

    Will check out and let you know.

    Thanks. I am sure if you run the 10K and I run the 5K, the time we finish won't be off by much :)

    Had a good 15 mile run today, with 2 15 minute intervals at HM pace. It was 45F and misty, actually felt really good. 

    Hope everyone else is having a good weekend.

    Bet that was nice, good work!
    Went 5 yesterday with a few fast miles to start and then coasted.  Was 30f and felt good.
    Calf seems to be cooperating.

    That's great, hopefully you can put that calf issue behind you.

    just 7 weeks until my race around the beautifully rugged Snowdonia national park in Wales. Training is tough but going very well.

    Great to see everyone still getting at it

    Wow! That is gorgeous. Looks like it will be a hard, yet amazing run.

    Last year's race was snow covered so I'm expecting anything. In terms of mountain ultras this is going to be my biggest challenge to date, and possibly my slowest 😂

    Snowdonia is probably my favourite part of Britain. Its just so beautiful. The mountains are not massive (especially buy U.S standards) but they can be very rugged and technical.

    That's a nice environment to run in! Cool!

    Beautiful. I will be in Arizona for the Innings Fest later this month. I was going to run at the hotel gym, but maybe I will do an outside run instead.

    It's a gated trailhead that open roughly 30 minutes before sunrise.

    Feels like 5.
    A little chilly for the first mile, was good for the rest of the run.  Had to walk the last mile, though.  Was going up a decent hill to end mile 5 and the calf started barking.  In the past I would change my stride a bit until I finished the hill and keep going.  Instead, I finished the mile (carefully) and walked mile 6.
    Better safe than sorry and giving a soak right now.  
    However, about halfway through that mile walk I was cooled down and then was a guy walking in sweat soaked clothing for another half mile in this cold weather.
    Hah.  Just thought of other stuff and was fine....but it is chilly out there.

    I can’t believe you ran outside yesterday. It was the treadmill for me. I met some friends for brunch after and walked 20 minutes each way to the restaurant. That was enough of outside for me.

    You all are hardcore. When the weather gets like this I am perfectly happy on the treadmill at the gym.
