hardcore.

That's the only way I can describe my day yesterday - 5.5 mile training run @ 8:20 pace, very cold and windy. The wind chill during my run was -3F. And the scary thing is, I had a blast! The only complaint that I really have is not so much due to my glasses fogging over from the face mask as much as said fog then freezing solid on my glasses

Last weekend is best described as epic...Saturday, I ran one loop of the course for the Clinton Lake Ultramarathon - 10 very hilly miles, in pretty cold weather (not nearly as cold as yesterday, but at the finish of the training run, I saw someone with a sizable icicle hanging from one of his sideburns). Ended up finishing the run at about a 10:40 pace, which put me at the front of the mid-pack or the back of the front-runners. Grabbed a quick breakfast (my new traditional post-training/race breakfast - 2 pancakes, no butter, no syrup, with 2 over-easy eggs sandwiched inside). Rested up for most of the rest of the day, devoured the entirety of a large vegan pizza (I recently discovered that Papa John's will make a pizza with no cheese), and slept like a baby. The following day, I set a new PR for the 10k flat indoor time trial at Champaign Cycle I got my time down to 17:30, shaving 21 seconds off my previous PR, and increasing my average wattage to 255!

How often do you need to lubricate your bionic parts?

And in what orifice do you pour the anti-freeze?
