Thursday Feb.26

Extreme cold warnings have been posted for almost every day in February. 
Yesterday was brutal. This afternoon was also very cold . I had given up putting in a run today. Late afternoon, I walked over to the Beer Store ot pick up a couple of Heineken Beer.. I was feeling down and in need of some soothing. I realized that the cold was less brutal than earlier in the day. . I decided I should try for a run. 
Ran 6.49K. 

This evening, I am feeling better. The below zero temperatures, ice and snow have  stopped me  on a number of days from training.

Sunday Feb. 22

 My blog has become more of a personal journal. A record of my run training.  

 One of the Blogs that I am following a bike blog written by a local lady. 
Totally Spoked  Check it out. 

I did not run today. I went to  Learn to Curl.   I decided to take lessons with the long-term goal of   becoming a "curler."  Most Sunday afternoons since the latter part of October I have been learning how to "curl".  So far, I like it.  This Friday afternoon (coming) I have signed up for a "real " game. Hoping,  I have a good experience. 

My goals for the week are to get in some training. & hopefully do some snow shoeing.

My training is technically based on distance. I have a  Garmin 10. It register time and distance, however as there is lots of snow and ice and traffic to contend with on my run, I don't bother about my time.
