MUCH warmer!

Fresh snowfall is pretty, but harder to run through.

This was another short run, since I’ve been a bit tired lately. Thick snow, especially crossing the lakes, made it a tough workout anyway.

A bit faster, but a lot harder than yesterdays identical route. What a difference a few inches of snow can make!

New Year – new sheet

With this being a new year, I have started a new spreadsheet. I’ve put in a few improvements over last years, and if you would like to use it, there is a ‘sharing copy’ available here. 

It’s a Google Sheets link, so you’ll need to go to ‘File’, then ‘Make a copy…’, then rename it to suit yourself. Also, there is a chance you can delete a few of the tabs, if they are not the sort of thing you track.

Training Tip: Pretend Poop Drill (not to be confused with the poop-needle)

Just like it sounds. Stop in the most awkward part of your route, and pretend you have a poo-mergency.

Where will you hide? (if modesty is important to your ‘good poop’)

How will you clean up? (Protip – sacrificial underpants should be a last resort.)

How will you craft the story so as to educate and entertain?

It is WAY better to think this stuff through BEFORE the actual poo-mergency is putting pressure on.

Aurora Borealis and my old pick-up truck. Running under such a light show is a breathtaking experience!
