How Low Can You Go

Get Me Some Jam, I'm On a Roll!

      Maybe it is because Christmas is coming, maybe it is because I am feeling really good after the surgery, maybe it is because the scale is FINALLY going down , but I am full of energy and loving it!

I got up this morning for our group run, it was -5C (-13C with the wind)  when I heard this I wanted to go back to my warm bed. But I didn't.  I put on my newly purchased base layer pants and long sleeved top.  Another pair of running pants on top.  A long sleeved Reebok top on top, my socks, some gloves, a scarf and a headband.  Let us not forget my windbreaker jacket.  I was ready to run with Father Winter.

The first 10 minutes was cold, but that is normal.  I was told that you should always start of a little on the cold side so that you work harder, your body also increases by 10 degrees when you run, so you do not want to be too hot at the beginning.  After that I was sweating.  I was at the head of the pack many times and this was a great feeling.  A few months ago, I was at the back.  I am so happy that I am making improvements.  We did 9.5K!  AMAZING!  The road was super icy, so we really had to be careful.  Some of us treated ourselves to a hot chocolate and a nice chat at the end of the run.

What a great run, once it got started it was really beautiful.

I couldn't find the button to send you a message, so sorry this is in your comments.

Would you mind telling me about your time in Japan, and any tips?
