    40 minutes on TM this morning, early so I could get in a run today.

    I seem to recall at least two ramps at the end of Dark Side last year. Luckily I train on hills (doesn't mean I like them). Passed up a bunch of runners on those ramps.

    Bike today

    Yeah, exact number seems to vary a bit by the exact course, but they always seem to stick them in the 75-80% completed part of the course, not at the beginning when everyone is fresh.

    4.01 miles at 1%.

    Agree with @dreamfinder and @Texas84 about those Disney "hills" - seem to show up at about Mile 10-11....cruel.

    @Texas84, think the route for this year's Dark Side will be the same as last year? Will we be graced with a run by the Waste Treatment Plant? :eek:

    Ran a 5k race today - was afraid the entire way I was going to turn an ankle. All gravel and sand with larger rocks everywhere. And talk about hills - there were two hills that stretched a quarter mile each as well as smaller ones in between. I so prefer running hills on solid ground that won't shift under my feet.

    Easy 3 miles in the rain and wind - and of course the wind was against us as we ran up hills and with us on the return! Despite the bad conditions it was still enjoyable because I ran with a good friend while both our respective pre-teens were at other activities. I think I'd rather run in bad weather with a friend than good weather with a moody pre-teen ;)

    8 mile run on Saturday in what was definitely the coldest weather of this winter here - it was 20 degrees but felt like 10 with the wind chill. I dressed properly so my core was warm enough, but I think the cold air was causing my diaphragm to cramp because it felt slightly painful to breathe almost the whole run even though I had a fleece **** around my neck and lower face much of the time.

    Ooooh Paris! Sounds like fun!

    I did 6 miles today for the first time since I was 22 yeare old (to give you an idea of how long ago, I'm running the star wars half for my 28th birthday)

    I am nursing a back injury so I was really anxious to run but I ran and did pretty well! Beat my mile time by a full minute :)
