Weekend update

My run went better on Saturday. It was cold - about 20 - and it took me the first half of the 9+ mile run just to feel warmed up. But I got that good feeling I've been missing on a beautiful morning. I know the cold scares many people off of running but I think if the fair-weather runners gave it a chance they would see how great it is to generate one's own heat on a freezing day!

I also managed a 135 bench on Sunday. It could be more even (left arm lags) but I got it, and did so pretty confidently. I wasn't feeling all that chipper walking into the gym either so it was a surprise. We are thinking that the time off last week probably contributed.
