Ran about 6.5 miles outside today - here is the entry from my log:

Outside running. Temperature was ZERO degrees F when I started, now it is 3 degrees. Current wind chill is -7.

This was my coldest run ever. I got really sweaty. My eyelashes were freezing together, because of the moisture from my breath into my face mask. I learned that my sweat-wicking gloves actually do wick sweat - little sweat ice crystals were appearing on the outside of my gloves.

This run was miserable. Was supposed to go longer, but I just couldn't. Too, too cold. I will run again tomorrow. High tomorrow is 14, maybe that won't be so bad!!!!!

6 mile run on the treadie.  It was -1 yesterday morning (-11 windshield) plus too much ice/snow on the road.  Don't like running in that cold of weather and will not risk injury.

Set treadie at 1% incline, started playlist, started at 8 min/mile increased speed each mile, finished in 43 minutes.  Respectable start for 2010.

A computrainer class yesterday that rocked me hard. I'm supposed to go run 4 miles here in a few...but it's so cold, and frankly I'm enjoying the comfort of my snuggie right now.

I did a couple of hours of skiing the steeps at Beaver Creek.   I'd planned a run today but my body is feeling torn up from coaching all day in the powder yesterday then getting into my car and being stuck in traffic coming down the mountain for 5.5 hours.  This drive normally takes me 1 hour 45 minutes.  We'll see how I feel in a few hours then decide.  I hate taking a rest day on a Sunday but sometimes my body just begs for it.

Met up with several other local triathlete friends for a dip in our favorite lake.  Our first annual New Years Eve polar bear swim.  We had a great time!

I ran 13.04 miles of forest trail in the wind and snow.  It was my longest run yet.  I loved it out there in the quiet snowy forest.

About 3 hours of surfing.

I did a hard 6 miles New Yrs Eve. Weather was sloppy, cold freezing rain mixed with snow. I was going to do the bike trainer on the 1st, but saw the wind had shifted...logged onto the surf cam and that was it. I put on my wetsuit and drove to the beach. Clean waist to head high+.

It still beats a swim workout, I tend to paddle harder and push myself to get beyond the break. I swam yesterday and my arms were still sore.

I swam for about 45 min. It was great.  I couldn't remember my drills though so I did a lot of pulling and legs only.
