Damn! Hard week of running this week. Every day seemed colder and windier than the one before. Tuesday I got in 13K on a 52 degree cold windy day. Thursday I got in 8K with 9 short intervals for my goal total of 3K. It was 48, but slight wind. Saturday it was 45 with high winds. Got in 9K with 3 bye 1.25k intervals wind aided! Today was 44 with 30 MPH frigid winds like last sunday. My God did I hate that! So I got in a total of 38K for the week. Next week starts and finishes ugly, but gets to 64 degrees mid week! Two more ugly cold fronts due to pass thru before the new year! Come on snake!

Just completed 40 years of running and racing distances from 1500 meters to 50 miles. After 4 back surgeries, surgeries to both feet, having my knee and ankle broken after being hit by a truck, and having had meniscus surgery in 2011, I have limited my competitive running to races I can complete in an hour or less. I think I have used up all 9 of my running lives, so I am hoping to stay injury free for a few more years! My goal now is to try and run 4 days a week with two days of quality work, and to supplement that with three days a week of weights and bike intervals at the gym. The Combination of Year/Kilometers (40 plus years and over 110,000 kilometers) have enjoyed their full effect on me orthopaedically.
