A brisk 37 at the beginning of todays run. I used the $1 wal-mart gloves that Kelli suggested and they worked great. I actually took them off around mile 7 because my hands were too warm. When it gets to single degrees, I will evaluate again :)

4 Base miles (8:20/)  followed up with 6x1 mile intervals (7:05 pace) and 1.5 mile cool down (8:30/).

 PM- 2+  miles, easy pace

There it is! The best thing is that if you take them off and lose one, no biggie to replace!

Kelli- I was just messing with you, I am sure you were in hurry :p They did work well!

Rattle- Thanks for the tip, I have seen some of those and wondered if they were any good.

I still like my Wal Mart gloves, Mike! But I have had frozen fingers a lot, so maybe I should invest in some for January and February!

Dan, you can mess with me all you want. I can take it. Just do not mess with my cookin', I am such a gourmet chef.
