This is it. Right?

Having just this week made my move to MN permanent (have been sort of on a temp work thing until now) I have obviously come to terms with the winter weather here. But PLEASE tell me this is the last of the sub-zero days??!! It's March. The clocks have changed. The weather people call it Spring...

Still, the blowing snow didn't stop me getting out for a short run last night - it wasn't so bad on the west side of Harriet but the wind coming off the lake on the other side wasn't exactly what I'd call fun. But it was so quiet and peaceful out there that it was worth it. Cutting back the miles a bit this week to see if my knee improves - no pain at all last night in the 5 miles. Will do another short one tomorrow or Friday and go longer at the weekend.

Finally got back to spin class at Lifetime yesterday morning - not having much success making JJ's compu trainer (i.e. bring your own bike) classes these days so I'm going to try to get in the hour class at the gym for a while until it's nice enough to bike outside. Nice enough to bike outside... April? May? Spinning on my own bike is obviously ideal for tri training but since I have none planned for this year I'm happy just to get a good workout on the spin bikes.

Chad very kindly interviewed me for his blog - I don't belong on the same list as most of the runners (e.g. Chris Lundstrom wants to run a fast marathon at some point - his PR is 2:17!) - but it's cool that he's covering ultra/trail runners. Loads of great interviews to read.

Last year, the last cold day was March 10, the year before, March 9. We're about done.

I hope.

I'm totally with you on the weather. This is ridiculous. I sure hope Steve Q is right.

I tried to post a comment on your last post but wasn't able to. I'm not sure ANYTHING is able to be "Hung" and "Erect" simultaenously.
