Tis still snowing! We've got about a foot and 1/2 here in Highlands Ranch and it's the heavy, wet snow that makes for big slushy messes. It would have been nice to get over to the trails fer some high knees but I couldn't get outta my drive way this morning. Oh well, put in another good workout on the TM. This workout went quick because I was constantly changing the speed and elevation. I did 6 x 1 mile repeats of increasing incline and increasing speed; first mile was @ 7 MPH with 4,5,6, and 7% respectively for each quarter, then onto mile 2 @ 7.1 MPH with the same increasing incline, and so on up through 7.5 MPH. It was harder than I thought but was a good simulation of undulating hills in Sausalito.

Don't wait - people are starting to buy socks.... They are scrumptiously comfortable!
