Running and ice skating in freezing weather

Thursday, January 12, 2012

I felt better today, not 100% but close. We had bright sunshine but under 30 degrees most of the day. I walked dogs in the morning for about an hour.
We went ice skating for about an hour after that and then I went for a 4 mile run. My heart rate monitor malfunctioned for the first mile or so, I probably didn't moisten the strap enough. After that it stayed around 132.
I went for 4 miles in 57 minutes, average speed was 4.2 mph, not great but I think it was a little harder to run because of the cold. The last mile I was a little uncomfortable inhaling cold air running into the wind. I'm glad I'm back on track.
Overall a lot of exercise in one day.
I'm planning on a trail ride tomorrow.

    I was also out for a frosty run, and am coming back from illness over the holidays. We have snow and -19C - 26C with wind chill. I am still not 100% either, but I therefore take it a bit easy. Hope we are both fully recovered soon.

    Good running and be careful out there.

    Its quite strange that you posted this. We went down to the freezing level last night and boy did i really struggle with my breathing this morning. For some reason it felt like i couldn't catch breath. Thankfully it passed after the first 1/2 mile.

    Good job keeping the workouts going in the cold snap.
