Germantown to Roxborough - 10.5 miles, averaged 7:48

Did a little exploring on the other side of the creek. Plenty of hills. Not sure how much as both Strava and Garmin Connect are being crappy. Crappy like my Garmin 610. The pin popped out twice on this run and it has done it before. Not super impressed.

AM/Lunch: Forbidden Drive (SE) - 10.7 miles, averaged 7:48

First day in screw shoes of the season. Not much snow but I worried about the downhills.

PM: 50 minutes on the bike while Megan was on the treadmill. My butt is sore. That grandma comfort seat just ain't cutting it. Got a decent sweat going even though my breathing wasn't super taxed. The New Years Resies were slamming the weight stacks. In jeans.

Chestnut Hill College Hill Loop - 8 miles, averaged 8:01

Around 8:10-8:20 pace until I came down Germantown Hill and ran after 8-minute Guy. Trail was icy and I didn't want to wear my screws because they get too much wear in the ~2.5 mile jaunt there. Looks like Philly police caught so more jerks breaking into peoples' cars (they wait for people to go into the park, then strike) as I was exiting and getting ready to climb the College hill.

I am sore from yesterday, which is embarrassing.

PM2: 40 minutes on the bike while Megan ran on the treadmill. Ace Ventura came on and I almost continued, but I had a long enough warm up for weights. Did a set of weights.

The apartment complex got a new treadmill to replace the one with the broken plug. Bad for them, good for me! It goes faster than 6:00 pace, has a new taut belt, and feels pretty accurate. What more do I need?! I gave it a quick stride at 5:12 pace to test it.

Lunch: Treadmill - 8 miles in 62 minutes. Did some strides for the first time since before Philly.

The newer treadmill goes faster than I thought. Put it down to what I though was the top speed of 5:12 pace and all of a sudden I was staring at 4:24 pace. I finished up, hopped on the sides, and put it up all the way to 14 MPH. Sounds like a jet taking off, but it is nice to have for something for hill sprints, strides, etc, when I need a treadmill.

PM: 30 minutes on the bike while Megan was on the treadmill. Then ab bench, pushups, and stretching
