Computer trouble and warmer weather

Thursday, January 05, 2012

My computer crashed 3 days ago. After taking it in to a repair shop I found that the problem was not just a virus, which I knew about, but also a dying hard drive, which I suspected. The computer was getting old, over 4 years and was stilling running with Vista, so it's time for a new one anyhow, unless I want to buy a new hard-drive for the old one which may not be worth it for a laptop. If anyone has advice I would love to hear it. emoticon

Still no chance to try out snowshoes, but I'm happy with the warmer weather and the sunshine.

All this distracted me from my running a bit. I did run two days ago, Tuesday after I needed two days off after my long run.
My feet and legs were still a tiny bit sore so this run was slower than expected. I hope it was an exception.
I went 4 miles on a chip-sealed road, nice warm weather, no wind with a big uphill and downhill section in 55 minutes, average heart rate of 133, average speed 4.3
Come to think of it, I didn't run on a bigger hill in a while. I also suspect that even the smaller stressors in life will affect my running more than they would some people.
Yesterday I just walked dogs and then also talk the horse for a long walk around town. Because the weather has been so warm there was fresh green grass everywhere which she loved.
I'm planning on 90 minutes of ice skating in the morning and then a run this afternoon.

    Just from experience with my own laptop both my IT administrator sons said to replacing it was less expensive AND would get me more for less since technology is constantly upgrading.
