Week 14/52 Recap
5.13 – 5.08 ladder – 7.45 LSR
This winter is really providing some challenges. An outdoor run in the deep fluffy stuff on Monday was quickly followed by shoveling the heavy snow on Tuesday. Throw in PT and all the regular modeling that strains my back and I was really feeling it all week.
Sunday was very cold again and a light but constant snowfall had the roads covered and dangerous in places for the last of our long run. It was a step down week thank goodness so we just ran tight little circles all around our neighborhood.
I think I blogged about Slap Pappy before. Jim (Pappy) and I play a game where we turn toward each other at a turn around or cul-de-sac. At the point where we face each other, we give a high 5 quickly followed by a low 5 as we pass each other. The video below shows us executing a very bad Slap Pappy because of slipping on the ice and me not being certain that we were going to cross in the frame of the video. Our slaps were fails and Jim starts to walk because of the ice but it was fun anyway
The pace was terribly slow but we had a very nice time together. It was so cold that the snow that was landing on my face toward the end wasn’t melting and Jim’s finger tips were getting numb. It was great to be out and together, singing Mr. Roger’s songs and joking about the ponies being in their fuzzy pajamas. No loose dogs rushed me like on Tuesday so I consider it a success.
