Cold Runner

There was an article in the local paper titled "Cold Runner" about running in Yellowknife where temperatures hover between -20 and -30C.

I won't complain anymore. Well, maybe I'll complain a bit less.

I did my first quality run using my new t-pace. It was the hardest workbout I've ever done. I didn't reach 5:06/km in all the laps because of the ice and snow, but I gave it my best. T-pace is supposed to elicit 88-92% of maxHR. My last interval had an average of 89% and that's interval where I actually ran at 5:07 to I'm pretty impressed by this whole VDOT thing.
