What a difference one day makes. Monday I was all over the place, just slipping and sliding. Today dry as a desert. Sometime you just got to know make the call to go to they gym. Monday I was slipping as soon as I got on the road. I should have hop in the car and dragged myself to to treadmill. I know if I had gone, I would have run an additional 3 miles in the time it took me to run 4.37 what a dope.

1/5/08- 4.47 miles
1/6/08- 5.42 miles

True, but sometimes running in tough conditions can toughen you up a bit and make good conditions seem so much easier. I know, I'm always looking at the bright side. ;-)

and today sliding all over again. I am too clumsy to run on ice, if I want to keep all my teeth, I have to go to the gym.
BTW, the training runs are every other weekend. Check www.celebratelifehalfmarathon.com. It is probably an hour 10? I'm guessing.

Good going, better than not running at all!

Well at least you didn't hurt yourself out there.

This seems to be a crazy winter in a lot of places. Do take care of yourself.
Good luck with running and wishing you a happy year.

Be careful out in that stuff Dawn You have a lot of good races to run in 09' and a lot of race t-shirts to give away :-)

Happy 09'

The gym provides a definite benefit when it is slippery outside. It may be boring, but at least you can get your run done and not worry about injuring yourself.

I agree with Pamela Ann, better than not running at all. I don't like to see a "white hole" in my log-book.

Ah to be outside!

bill carter said...

It is definitely treadmill time.

Way to go Dawn!
