Give Me a Freaking Break!


It's *&#$ing March!!! I'm so sick of the negative temps that I am ready to go balistic on someone...Minnesota sucks!!! I haven't liked it, but I've been tolerant of the freaking cold temps this winter, if it doesn't warm up...I too cold to even think up a good threat. I went running outside after work yesterday and had to wear my balaclava, which isn't good when trying to do any type of speed work since you can't breath quite as normally through it (and I tend to clench my jaw to keep it a bit further off my mouth) all that said I still managed a respectible tempo run, 7 miles, 4 at tempo, wanted 8:15 pace, first tempo mile was 8:14, then 8:09, 8:05 and 7:55, oops...it was cold, I wanted to get done!! Averaged an 8:21 again which wasn't bad, especially considering how cold it was (not quite as cold as today, but defintiely single digits).

What an incredibly cold winter it has been in Minneapolis. Good for you for getting out and running, though.

Good Lord it is cold in MN!! We are having almost 60 degree weather tomorrow. Where did you find that temp. info to add to our blog. I love that idea.

Hey, spring is only a week and a half away! Or, at least that is what the calendar says... :)

This is why the M states need to go or the ground hog needs to be eliminated. I personally think we should grind that ground hog up for the extra winter we are having.
