In like a lion; out like a lamb?

Well, March seems to be holding true to the first part of that old saying and certainly is coming in like a lion.  We had 2 feet of snow today, and although if it hadn’t snowed I would have taken … Continue reading

80 minutes on the trainer; will shovel snow tonight.

I didn’t get to the gym last night, but did manage to do some lifting in my basement: mostly squats with some variations.  Weights in my basement aren’t as beneficial as at the gym because there is only so much … Continue reading

Soiled my new Brooks T7s!

I decided not to wait for clean roads before breaking out the Chrissie Wellington Edition Brooks T7s.  They were nice and clean before this run, but after 7.5 miles of snow, slush, and slop, they look well used. The conditions … Continue reading

The kids have a snow day today, so I took the day off too.  I got in a 75 minute spin, in which I mostly took it easy, but also got in some speed work. Now we’re headed out to … Continue reading

Wow, this is the first time in a while that it hasn’t snowed.  Of course the price I paid for this lack of snow is measured in single digit temps.  It was about 3 degrees when I went out for … Continue reading

More running on sloppy, slippery roads

It’s still snowing.  Seems like it snows everyday, but that’s OK.  This is Vermont and I like it like that. It does make for difficult running, however.  The roads looked clear when I looked out the window, but it started … Continue reading

Lunchtime run; playing chicken with the snowplows.

I went for a 33 min run at lunch (4.25 miles, 7:46 pace) in the snow.  It wasn’t snowing hard, but the roads were sloppy.  Twice, I played chicken with the snowplows.  Wasn’t much of a game as I chickened … Continue reading
