First run of the new year, pretty exciting! Well not really just a low mileage run out the murdoc canal trail, but hey we got indoor track season starting up which is actually exciting, ready to kick some butt!

What goes better with a run than snowballs? Shout out to Mini Nugg for catching the snowball I threw... with her head. #aimingworksbetterwhenyoujustdont

Key phrases from today's run: "They aren't called deer they're called bambies" "Im gonna break my femur" "I dont have a femur" "Whose idea was this" "Is it considered poaching if you tackle a deer?" "Im gonna run in the back so no one see's it when I trip" "There's a bush back there you guys"

Definitely the best run of the year, which isn't really saying a whole lot since we aren't even a week into the year yet, but still. Started out on the jail trail, then we must have crossed into Narnia or something cause the run got really cool really fast. Discovered the bambi trail and then crossed back to the Timp highway intersecction by bush wacking through Scotland, well not really, there weren't any kilts, but it looked like it.

So just to sum up the run was dang sweet, I would hate to have been someone who ran on a road, or heaven forbid the Murdoc canal trail, oh wait... @girlsxcteam

Nothing too exciting from today's run, except at the end when Colin had to take an urgent call from... um... a friend of his

We found another one. Who ever said there wasn't anywhere to run if you turn up towards imflash. Ok so half the guy's team did, but turns out that half of the team was wrong. We found some cool trails out behind the parking lot.  They were super wet and muddy but who ever said you need traction to have a good run anyway? Ok so I'm sure somebody did, but they were wrong too. Besides how can you not have an amazing run when it starts out with almost starting a stampede of elk. #Ipleathefifth

First speed workout of track season. Didn't know it was possible to kick up snow far enough that it falls down your own shirt. I guess I'm just skilled like that.

My knee started hurting part way through the rest of the mileage and the little Jamie inside my head kept telling me that finishing mileage wasn't a good idea no matter how much I might want to. So I turned back early and ended with 4.75 miles instead of 6, which is a trade I can live with to avoid an injury.

Ok so my work-out didn't take me anywhere courtesy of my knees that decided they wanted to hurt after speed yesterday. Track season, meet my knees, they don't like you very much aparently. Oh, you dont like them either? Well you'll have to come to terms with each other cause I've got races to run and records to set. Sooo GET ALONG GOSH DANG IT. Please :D

So another bike workout for me today, which means yes no miles to log. running today may not have been a good idea, but I'll tell you what was a good idea: the snowball fight before hand and the snowangels and penguin sliding contests afterward. Shout out to Austin, the mastermind behind our... extracurricular activities. And before you ask yes it was cold. #worthit

Tried running again today with the pickups since my knee was feeling ok (emphasis on was). It felt good for the mile warmup, but as soon as we started the first pickup it started hurting again, so I only ended up going 4.25 miles and only doing 4 of the pickups. And with that i ended my last run with furry legs for a while since I wont be running again till at least Tuesday and the cruel dictator of fate has decided that I must shave my legs... In other words I lost a bet. The funeral will be Monday evening. #wookielivesstillmatter #sendflowers

Shout out to Jamie for being the best coach of all time! #itsagirl

Did a run walk today 1 minute on 4 minutes off, 4 times. Not exactly the most interesting run in the world, but hey could be worse. I foresee lots of icing and rolling in my future... Bring it.

Another run walk for me today. Found a way to make things a little more interesting this time though. Short shorts (no tights) arm warmers gloves and... no shirt. Yes, I took my shirt off in the snow #goals.  Felt like a bit of a tool, but not enough to keep me from doing it again 100% worth it.

Note to the girls who waved from a passing car: Duck tape can't fix basic. It takes the right kind of tool for that.

ANOTHER run walk. Got farther this time, not a whole lot, but hopefully that means the knee is getting better. Also a pretty intense speed work out on the bikes.  Super pumped to tear up the track once I can get back out there. Get ready track season, I'm comin for ya. You arent gonna know what hit you.

Run walk round 5 or something like that. Glad it stopped snowing before we left. Took my shirt off again cause run walk is just kinda boring and if you cant run fast at least you can look fast. #gottakeepthingsinteresting

Run walk agian. Got a little excited on the way out and decided trying picking up my knees on the way back, but they didn't like that very much and started hurting again. Wish they'd stop being so darn tempermental. So in hopes of helping them feel better we're gonna take a full cross train day tomorrow. #gameplan

Cross train day. Not so bad when you've got a great team to spend it with. Then we had upper body workout #2. Don't skip arm day. Turns out the trick to lifting a lot isn't actuallly picking the heavy weights, its just getting the big set of 10's that look a lot heavier than they are. #lifehacks

Guys its a miracle! My knees didn't hurt during the run walk today! There was a tiny bit of tightness at the very end but other than that they felt great so HOPEFULLY (fingers crossed toes crossed eyes crossed) it'll be completely better soon. Real quick explanation about the weird number for mileage. Usually I don't log stuff that isn't at least a quarter of a mile, but on run walk you work hard just to get that .15, so Im gonna log it thank you very much

Did the bike workout after outside with the rest of my injured buddies. It was actually really fun which seems uncharacteristic cause its still a bike workout, but you'd be surprised how much fun we can have with snow even when we can't get off the bikes to pick it up. Didn't know you could have so much fun sitting on an uncomfortable bike seat. We also found out how to stop the bikes from squeaking at the same time we found out it was possible to hydroplane on a stationary bike. #skilled

Shout out to everyone racing tomorrow and on Saturday, yall gonna kick butt. If you don't get killed by a baby cow between now and then @collin_morrison

Run walk again. Didn't have many people left to do it with cause most everybody was racing. Also an upper body workout since me and mini nug missed the lower body one a couple days ago.

Another run walk, but I got bumped up to 3 on 2 off though so that's exciting. Still feeling pretty good, not 100% back yet but definitely getting there. Had to use one of Jamie's retro watches for the workout since mine died. Took me a while to figure out how it worked turns out that to reset the run you hold the button that has the word "reset" next to it. Who knew. Surprised it took so long to locate since it's basically like having a big satelite dish on your wrist. Still not sure how it can be the Forerunner 205 when the Forerunner 15 is more advanced. Maybe the people at Garmin just can't count I know I can't after a run.

no run walk today just a really long bike workout. and when I say really long I mean REALLY long. Like my watch hit 1 hour while timing it long. Sout out to Gan for sticking it out with me. It isn't so bad when you've got someone there suffering with you.
