SOCK IT TO ME BABY!!!

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

And this gets me out of a workout tonight.

It's 8:10 or so this morning.  The sun's been up about ten minutes; the temperature is 18.3 F on my back porch.  Sweats, jeans, t-shirt, sweat shirt, hoodie, coat.  Sock cap, hood up, gloves on.






All the way up the walk to the front of the complex; across the new bridge to the trail.  Five inches of snow, and one set of footprints.


Getting winded...



As I trudge along the path, Scrappy dances through the deep snow, limpy-gimpy and all.




Dig, dig, dig... I know you're down there somewhere...
I'm getting pooped.  Where is that walk-bridge back home?

Stumble down the trail, slide down the ditch.  Trip over the footbridge, march back home.  8:50 AM, 19.9 degrees F.

    Well, that "workout" of yours MUST have done something.

    It was18 degress when you left, and after all that huffing and puffing out that nasty CO2, it was 19 degress when you returned.
    See? It got WARMER.

  4. Funny... snow was always my favorite to run in. :) Course, 18 is a bit cold... at least you didn't have a negative wind chill factor.

    1. Today was 32, the walk was longer... and I think we'll both be gimpy after it.
