Ironman Florida in...T - 317 days...?? hours....

No run today!  Was going to try to get one in even though it is an off-day per the sked.  I had good intentions, but the ice storm that we are getting right now is putting  a stop to that.  I can run in the cold (and hate it), but not going to be stupid enough to run in this weather.  Maybe tomorrow  will be the snow that they promised us.  A snow run would be fun, an ice run...not so much!

Forgot to pack my HR monitor((hehehehe), so I just went out for an "easy" run. Nice temp today..probably was a bit too cold at the start (wearing only shorts and a dry-fit top) but I warmed up fine by the end and was very comfortable even with the cool wind blowing.

Nice run through town (I live in a small town outside of Memphis). I forget what it is like to be home and be known by so many people. Had numerous people honking, waving and cutting me off to talk to me as I was running...all wishing me a welcome home and a Merry just got to love small-town America!!!

Maybe it was my own modern day/fitness type of "Its a Wonderful Life" as all the people waved and called out to me as I ran down main street! It's good to be home!

Made it home to the Memphis area.  Damn is it cold!  Hating the cold already, but there is a hint of flurries for Christmas Day and the day after, so I will bear with it if that happens.  After that, I need some warm more cold!  Send it North where those whackos enjoy it!  (Yeah, you know who you are!).  I will never complain about the hot New Orleans summer days again...well, atleast not till May!  

Scheduled off-day.  Run is on the sked tomorrow...have I said how much I hate the cold, yet?

Was supposed to be another Zone 1 run(55 min), but I could not keep my HR down, no matter how slow I ran. Maybe going to that smoke filled bar last night was not a smart idea. Boy do I miss San diego and their no-smoking policies!. I tried to go off of feel and not the HR today. Ran "easy" not slow.

Last day of work today.  Half day then it is off until after Christmas!  I leave for Memphis on Monday.  Haven't been home in two years, so I am looking forward to it.  I am sure the workouts will suffer a bit; too cold to take the bike and no pool.  Oh well, I will get in what I can with the runs and enjoy the holidays!

Too much fun enjoying the start of my workout gonna happen today.  I will make up for it tomorrow with some extra miles!
