Tough workout from Daily HIIT -- lots of plyo. Opted for this rather than a run out in the cold.

The cold snap continues, 24 degrees at 5 a.m. That's justification IMHO to not get up to run. I think tomorrow will be better.

This might be the winter that I lobby to get a treadmill.

Supposed to run with Karen at the park, she called around 3 and said she was feeling like crap. Went ahead to the park and tried a new route that went through some neighborhoods I had not run in before. Really enjoyed it, good mix of long slow climbs. When I got back to the park I ran into Carol, the wife of the local tri race director, and she ran the last mile with me.
