I had actual brain freeze running in this cold! -14 the temperture said, and I THINK that was with out the windchill.
I had a 13km on tap - 8 km of that was tempo. Being so cold, I wore a long sleeved tech and a heavier snow board coat. 1+km into my run, I knew that I was overdressed for a tempo, and I knew that 10k was for tomorrow, so I mentally decided to switch them.
Turned left off the road and headed into the feilds. 9.75k done, just over an hour. It was windy and I do have to go slower in the fields from the frozen ruts and ice. But the intensity is there and I really just love it.
I had figured in the fall, that one lap of the corn field was 1900metres, so I did 4 laps today, and made it kind of an interval workout.
One lap I did headed in the other direction, and it was frigid and against the wind, and just 'felt' backwards.
On Strava.com, I have received my 75 mile blast for the month so far!
