    Ugh!  So after one sub-twenty-degree run in the new year, I instituted a policy of no more sub-twenty-degree runs!  At least until I find some gear that protects my nose and lungs while I run, anyway.  Who knew you could freeze your nose hairs?  Also, as it turns out, huffing in really cold air is a really great way to set off a coughing fit…


    This has meant that I got in two runs last week, and none yet this week.  I’m making up the difference with the air-walker, trying my best to keep my heartrate in optimal range, but it just isn’t the same.  Each time I *do* run, I’m getting a little bit slower.  I suspect the winter is really going to set me back!


    Also, it’s incredibly difficult to motivate myself to exercise in the house.  I miss the scenery!  Even while watching video, it’s hard to keep myself pushing…
