I love winter!

OK, it's not 'officially' winter for another month but we had our 1st snowfall of the season last night. It got two very opposite reactions at our place. My wife's response was "Oh no, yuck!!" while mine was "All right, beautiful, can't wait to get out for a run!". She thinks I'm nuts but puts up with me.
The beautiful natural decorations of winter...
Quiet back streets...
And desolate open spaces...

Don't you just love it? I didn't see a soul for my entire 6 mile run around town today.

Meanwhile, it's been a very quiet week with only easy running as I try to deal with the continuing hamstring issue. The stretching and strengthening exercises are starting to help but I need to hold back on the mileage for a bit. Just 34 miles last week in 5 runs.

The old pushup challenge is going better as I just completed the lowest of 3 levels in Week 5. You can log your workouts and follow my progress here. It's time for another progress test but it looks like I'll be repeating Week 5 next week.

That's it for now. Have a nice week!

Awesome pictures! I'm quite jealous, we've only had a few flakes so far this year and nothing has stuck. Good luck with the hamstrings.

I would have had the same reaction as you.

Sorry Mike, your wife is right!

Seriously though, I remember the rare times (we only get snow a couple of days a year, if at all) I've run in the snow, it's been fantastic, and all wonder.

Good luck with the hammy.

I've only run on snow once, at that was only a sprinkling.

We just get rain, rain and rain over here in winter. That sucks.

Snow looks great, but you can keep it mind you. Nice photos!

I think we all enjoy the first few days of snow. But when it starts affecting our workout because it's too slippery and cold, then that's when we start saying "can't wait for winter to be over with". We'll all have to see when we're well into Dec and Jan.
Nice pictures.
