Somewhere around 7 degrees this morning ( not celsius of course ) with
a lot of wind and blowing snow.

Only 2nd day this year face mask was mandatory but all the layering
knowledge ... not to be underestimated!

Good luck all!

Out yesterday in central Illinois it was 8 and wind chill at way under zero.
Laps in neighborhood going on 200 yards into the wind before turning. It was
the coldest run I have done for a long time. I did the treadmill today.
After 25 years of running 5 years ago I bought a nice one and it certainly
is nice at times. I hit the treadmill today it was 4 degrees and some wind.
The problem with the treadmill is that at times I get balance issues and
really you have concentrate to stay upright. My hamstring ***issue does
not make the treadmill as good because staying right on target and having
decent form. Lucky I can still run at least to keep up some fitness.

BTW I hate face mask and have a neck cover and load up on petroleum jelly on
the face. Thank god for my gortex jacket I don't even think they make them
anymore or at least I don't see them much. A good polypro long sleeve and
the goretex and you are ready to go.

Well ... "one of many issues" ...

Been a long while thankfully since I was on a dreadmill ...

Not easy to stay on these machines for me running at all.  Takes a ton
of concentration.

One missed step ... just a little off ... and blammo ... tossed off
the back of the machine!
