Icy Lashes

Yesterday my training was snowed out but today I managed an 8K in the -18C weather. The wind chill was actually down at -26C and I had a problem with my eye lashes freezing together.

It's pretty hard to breath through a frozen balaclava and on the way up the last hill I was sucking pretty hard to get enough air.

It's surprising how warm you can be if you layer correctly. After my run I stood outside and stretched and watch all the smokers freezing themselves looking at me like I'm crazy. Not only was I warm but I had just done something that was good for me.

Tomorrow I plan a short run and Saturday I'll be helping out at the Pickering 1/2 marathon. Sunday I'm planning 30K.
