Nose Hair Awareness

Yep, it's been chilly around here lately. How chilly? Well, you know those mornings when you can hear the snow crunching under your feet and become acutely aware of your nose hair freezing as soon as you step outside? That kind of weather. On the upside, the ticks and mosquitos haven't been bad ;) Not that it matters much when you're a weather wimp and run on the dreadmill.

I didn't accomplish as much as I'd hoped to this week, but it wasn't a complete wash out either:

Mon: strength training + bike (intervals) for 30 min
Tues: treadmill run 3.0 miles
Weds: nada
Thurs: nada
Fri: very short strength circuit + 4.0 treadmill run
Sat: barefoot kettlebell circuit

Planned for Sun: 7 mile run
Hoping that STS-122 space shuttle Atlantis launches if they can get the bugs fixed.

Also did some X-Mas shopping this week - mostly online. In case you didn't already know, REI is offering $20 off purchases over $100 until 12/24. Coupon code = HOLIDAY7

Thanks for the comment! We at Toots and Sally do not know if we know you, but we'd like to link to you, if that's okay.

Toots fared splendidly, and will, hopefully, be back in MN before the snow melts.

Feel free to link up. Congrats to Toots on her marathon and a PR! I've probably passed you out on the trails (the names Toots and/or Sally don't ring a bell)...I remember you posting about your spur of the moment half marathon at Afton on the MN Dead Runners list. Oh, and I shop at REI a lot ;)

So why do some days feel so much colder than other days when the temps and wind (or lack of) are comparable? I think humidity might be a factor. Anyway, today I experienced the "nose hair freezing" sensation for the first time this year. I didn't really like it. :)
