12/22 Monday - 3.65 miles late int the afternoon. Pete and I ran around the reservoir in the local park. I kept my pace up for the duration of the run because I was feeling pretty good. I didn't have my watch, but Pete said I hit the 3 mile mark around 23 minutes. Later that evening a friend and I drove up to the north shore for a spin class at Soul Cycle. I heard and read about Soul Cycle in Manhattan. I was psyched to learn there were a couple of locations on the island. The facility is pretty slick, clean, and state-of-the-art. We were lucky to get into the sold out class. There is no membership, you pay per class which is $34 a pop. Newcomers pay $20 for their first session. There are 52 bicycles in the room and the class is 45 minutes long. They loan you special shoes that clip into the bike pedals. After we were locked in, Jo, the instructor turned out the lights and turned up the music. I felt like I was in a scary nightclub. I expected a hard core workout and that's exactly what I got. Not only do you ride to the max, but you also lift dumbbells while pedaling. The class was fun and I would definitely do it again, but it's definitely too expensive for me to be a regular in this particular life.

12/24 Wednesday - 9.8 miles that was supposed to be 10. Not timed. The temperature was a balmy 48 degrees at 9:30 in the morning. It was misting and drizzling for most of the run, but toward the end the rain started to come down hard. I wore shorts, a long sleeve tech with a short sleeve cotton t-shirt on top. I was soaked by the time I came home.
I hope to run through the weekend. We'll see what happens...
