The run: I managed to get up early one day, had a nice run in the snow on another and a long run Saturday.
Thursday we got about 11 inches of snow. I had a doctor appointment in the morning then planned to run on the treadmill then go in to work in the afternoon. Well, with the snow, I planned on a treadmill run then working from home in the afternoon. Before heading to the Y, I was reading some forum posts and ran across one about running in the snow and decided to give it a try. It was beautiful but brutal.

Like I said, the run was brutal. It was like doing intervals with leg weights on. I would run until my heart rate hit mid zone 3 then walk until I hit zone 1. I almost quit after 2 minutes, but the thought of changing again, going to the Y and changing again, running, changing again, motivated me to keep going.
For the first part of my run, there was one set of tracks, then none.

I was bored during the recovery period, thus the cool pics. And a bonus video :-).
Oh, and to cap the week off, Go Steelers!
