Workout: Recovery run (overall average pace - 10:20)

  • The temperature hovered in the low 30's this morning which was a big dip from yesterday's run in the mid 60's. Yesterday I beat the torrential rain. Today I ran in snow flurries. Fortunately, the snow melted by the time it hit the ground. I wonder what weather I'll run in tomorrow. It's anyone's guess!

I have not been a member for 20 years, but the health club celebrated its 20th year anniversary by purchasing new spin bikes! The bikes are AWESOME!

I've been listening to the podcast, The Happiness Lab during my treadmill workouts. I've really enjoyed starting my day contemplating the idea of happiness. Today's podcast was about silver medalist winners. They are the least happy podium winners at the Olympics and on average die the soonest of any medal winners. It is all about perspective. Highly interesting and engaging data research to start my day.

I listened to the podcast, The Science of Happiness. It helped pass the time in the gym since the outdoors consisted of steady, cold rain.
