Running (Treadmill) 36:09 intensity: (26:09 @3) + (10:00 @4)
slept:4.0 weight:177.5lbs

Kansas City, MO. As I drove in from the airport, the temperature was 20F and dropping quickly with 30mph winds, and light snow. It was whiting out and there were lots of little wrecks. You know it's not good when you look in your rear view mirror and a snow plow is bearing down on you kicking up snow while a car in front is slowing down. Though the snow had stopped by the time I was done with work and ready to run, it was getting dark, still icy, getting colder and still windy. I opted to use a treadmill to get a better run. I started slowly and gradually increased pace. There were a couple interruptions when my arm swing inadvertantly hit the quick stop button. I still don't believe the work incurred on a treadmill is the same as running in the great outdoors but according to the machine, I was averaging somewhere just under 7 minute/mile pace. I was running in the 6:20's at the fastest. Despite the treadmill, this was still a decent workout.

Swimming warm up/down (Backfloating) 6:30 [1]

Kansas City, MO. After the treadmill run in the hotel, I took advantage of the pool that I had all to myself. I cooled down floating on my back, kicking gently and using my arms a bit to do laps. These days, I have enough body fat to float reasonably--it's too many cookies the last 2 days. After backfloating, I hit the hot tub for a while. Yes, work trips can be busy.
