Haha, it's nothing like that, but I'd like it to go that way one day. For now she is keeping me in line and helping me a lot with some of my...quarks.

Running today sucked. The cold air burned my lungs, and I ate shit on the ice, twice. I powered through after a few thoughts of quitting.

Dropped the weight on curls and I am getting nice, good, and controlled form. I'll bump the weight up till that starts to suffer, then hold. Added super close grip chins at the end of my workout, for fun. Rest tomorrow, funny, seeing as how it's the last day of the year.

Btw I weigh 145-150#, so if add my + body weight exercises you can see I am moving considerable weights. Nearly 200lb chin ups? Yes please.

Rested today, sorta. Spent most of the day shoveling snow, parking cars, directing people, and doing chores for the rangers here at the park. I start my heavy circuit tomorrow. I am getting a bit burnt out, I am headed for a week off in the next couple weeks.

Ended up lifting late, and with food in my stomach, tired as hell from busting my ass at work. But I am too far into this to miss a day unless absolutely needed. Gonna eat some pancakes, a protein shake, and crash early.

Despite slowing down A LOT to avoid and carefully maneuver ice I manged to run in good time. With no ice on the ground I could have easily gotten 46 minutes. I have almost integrated that extra half mile into my runs and when there is no ice on the ground in a week or so I will try and add another half mile.

I just checked, re-checked, and triple checked my running route. I'm unhappy to say I miscalculated the mileage, it's only 4.6, not 6.1 like I had thought, I guess I made an error before. Which means I am slow as hell, at least in these conditions.

But here is the thing, when I ran at 400ft above sea level at my sisters house in San Diego on the running trail that is 1.5-1.7 mi for 4 laps (or 5.5 to 6 miles), I did that in 48 minutes, the same time it takes me to run the 4.6 up here at 2,500+ ft.

My guess is the altitude and the steep hill that I run up along RT. 243 really destroy my endurance, speed and time, coupled with the cold weather makes a 4.6 mile as challenging, if not more than the 6 mile I easily ran in San Diego.

Time is irrelevant at this altitude, and on my course, it's all about distance I am finding, because it's so fricken hard to run at this altitude and on these gradients.

I will redouble my efforts to capture 5 miles, and then 5.5, and then 6 miles, in my environment, over the course of my next few rest periods.

Running at altitude is a whole different ball game !!

Hope you had a great New Year, all the best for 2013. Make it count MF.

Ran 5 miles in 48 min. It's hard to run up here in the cold.

I'll have to train my abs later as the ranger is being a dick and insists I go pick trash up. Why now and not later? Who knows.

I should have lifted today and rested tomorrow, but I am having issues in my personal life, so I decided to rest today and lift tomorrow.
