without the joy and satisfaction of ben & jerry.
Normally speed work is indoors at the university track on a Tuesday night. This week it was outdoors.
When I was packing my bag of running stuff, it was deceiving sunny out, making me think it was warm. So I didn't pack a hat or headband-ear-protector-thingy.
When we started the run it was (-18/-4).
We had a warmup (which made me colder than before), then 3 loops of a 1.5 mile route around the park.
At the end of loop one, my ears were throbbing, so I ran the second loop with my hands on my ears, screaming ".... la la la la can't hear you"
By the end of loop two it felt like an axe was impaled in my forehead.
When I got back to my car I put the heater on full and stuck my head as close to the vent as my lack of flexibility would allow.
The non-ice-cream headache lasted til almost 11pm. My head must be pretty dense to take that long to thaw!
