Sick boys and 20 inches of snow were not kind to my running this month. I fought through it all, but did have to do a rather gnarly 14 mile treadmill run one day. Not my idea of fun, but easier, perhaps, than trying to run 14 miles in twenty inches of snow. The following week, I chose to brave the conditions and do a 16 miler outside in pouring rain and wind gusts. It was a long, slow run. Also not my idea of fun. But I was glad to be able to run it.
Needless to say, my treadmill broke the 1,000 mile mark this month. I was happy to have the treadmill option, even if I am tired of running indoors. Paul was kind enough to get me an Ipod Nano for Valentines, and it helped to have some new music along the way.
Total mileage = 136.
I also had quite a few "unscheduled" snow shoveling workouts which lasted a couple of hours in duration. Fun, fun, fun.
