This Is a Protest Song

Hell no! Viper won't go ... run in temperatures of 20 degrees or lower until next winter. I'm done with it. This weather is better suited for single malt whiskeys than moisture wicking fabric.

February is over and done with. It was better than January, but not great.

Here is February's statistical run-down:
  • Total Miles: 56 (10 runs, one race)
  • Highest Weekly: 20 miles
  • Average Weekly: 11.3 miles
  • Average Pace: 9:43 per mile
  • Longest/Fastest Run: 10 miles, 9:55 pace
I didn't get in a long run on Saturday or Sunday. That's not great preparation for a race for which I'm already not prepared.

I would definitely agree that these winter months are more suited towards whiskey. Fo sho.

I laugh that your "low" mileage months are currently my high mileage months. Sigh. However, I completely agree that I'm sick of running in the cold. I'm ready for spring already.

About the only thing I did in February was drink my weight 2-fold in beer.

So kudos to you!

What, you don't want to go run in Akron's currently 8 degree temperatures (which I learned from your handy weather thingy in the sidebar)?? Oh, come on. Where's your sense of adventure?

Oh I agree, I am over running in single degree weather. Plus, if your St. Patty's day race is really about running and drinking, than drinking is part of your training plan.

i would rather drink whiskey over running anytime but that is just me. i support your running efforts viper - cold weather be damned!

The weather here has been great lately and I haven't run as much as you have.

I think that being underprepared for races is what you do best.

I don't know, your little weather thing is reading 21 degrees currently... since you made your "20 degrees or lower" vow the weather gods will surely mock you all March by keeping the thermometer hovering around 21 or 22.
