|My Amphipod Belt had begun to slip last year, so I duct taped the sliding parts. I grew so chubby in my off season I couldn't get it done up anymore, so I had to go with the hand held. Not Good.|
Monday Jan 3rd- 175lbs
Tues Jan 4th-173.6 lbs
Sun Jan 9th 170.4 lbs
OK, so I had a dilemma. I'm 170.4 lbs. on Sunday afternoon. I KNOW if I hit the whirlpool for an hour or so I could get under 170 and enjoy lots of beer that night. But really, who was I kidding. I wasn't being honest with the only person who cares, me. (Sniff, wipe tear from eye).So I had a glass of wine instead and went to bed.
This morning I woke up and it was -11˚C. Not a good day for a run.The car doors were frozen shut. So I resigned myself to running on the treadmill, but miracle of miracles, I put my run off for so long (1:00pm), it got positively warm out, a blistering -3˚C! I purposely overdressed, hoping to sweat out the extra 0.4 lbs.
|I went with the Inov-8 Debris Socks and the Khatoola Spikes due to all the snow and ice. Sorry Captain!|
So I did a very relaxed first loop in around 50 minutes. Lots to see.
|Stoopid Bridge, I cracked my head on it again, I still stand up too fast after going under it.The not so funny thing is, if you knock yourself out, you're likely going to roll into the Don River and drown.|
So I did a killer quad workout on Saturday. Squatted 150lbs, 3 sets of 5, then did progressive leg extensions, 3X15 @ 90, 100 & 110lbs.
I go to run 2 hours on Sunday, Not Good. I felt like electricity was shooting through my thighs, and had to quit after an hour. Doh.That set up today, and I just took my time and it was B.E.A.U. tiful.
|Mountain bikes? Seiously? It's winter!|
|Watch your head. Doh.|
|We call this section "The Sumachs". Beaver and I once saw a ,well, a Beaver, in here. Or was it a deer? I just remember we saw something.|
|Do you know what's weird? As you run along the trail, ice builds up under your shoes. You really don't notice it until you hit something like, say wood. It would be funny, but then again, you could die here.|
|Hey, some idiot ran over this dangerous platform. Looks like he was wearing Khatoolas.|
|The Khatoolas start to ice up.Yak Traks are for Mailmen and Old people.|
|It's A Beautiful Day|
|Me with my case of "Old Mill" My hair is still sweaty, because when I weiged myself, I went to the Beer Store before my shower.|
|I really, really owe it all to this guy|
|A Bit Of Snow. Three and a half Months To go until the pool is open!|
|This is called "Art". Even Portage liked it, and she's practically a professiomal photographer.You don't want to be wearing the iPod taking this shot, as the trains run quite regularly.|
Next post-165 lbs.
I hope I will be will be posting about buying another case next Monday!
