|Have you ever LAID DOWN on a treadmill|
after running?? Yeah, it's HOT like a heating pad!
I've been avoiding the Garmin or anything that times my runs. I know I've been slow on the comeback. I can feel my body moving slower and don't need to see the numbers to reinforce that. It's depressing and I'm trying not to let it mess with my head. With Old Man Winter being nasty this year, I've been forced onto the treadmill more than I'd like. I cover up the time/speed displays, but as a veteran runner, I know by the setting what speed I'm doing (6.0mph is 10 min/miles). Through the weeks, I've noticed a slight increase of pace which is encouraging to keep on keeping on.

When it comes to biking, I really miss my rides outside. I don't have an indoor trainer (yet) so Spinning classes fill the void. I am a Spin instructor at my gym, and it has been my happy place this winter. I love the ability to ride with friends of all fitness levels. We have a lot of fun in the Spin room, plus it's a fantastic cross-train for running. I'm hoping come spring, I'll be able to smoothly transfer over to rides on the road bike.
#RaceAll50. I've got 19 states done already, but it's getting expensive to say the least. So when the opportunity arose to win a trip to a state I haven't raced yet, I jumped at it! I've received some nasty messages about it, so let me say this... By no means do I think I'm better than any other blogger or deserve it more than anyone else, I would just love the chance to run Napa Valley in CA! In fact, I've been voting daily for my other friends in the contest. The 'Run to Napa' voting runs until Feb. 24 and I would greatly appreciate your daily votes. If I win, another trip to ZOOMA Napa Valley will be given away here on the blog, so there's a bit of incentive for you too. Click here to vote. Please know that I appreciate it more than you know!
