    @rheddmobile what a frustrating run. I hope every one stays safe from the floods.

    Well it's been a week since I pulled my calf. Going to attempt a run today. Coach is calling for 6.4k... I think I'll just do a couple of km and see what happens, I'm not willing to risk damaging it further.

    @Aine8046 - Your can join the Run the World Challenge at this link
    Once you have joined you can connect to Strava where it says 'APPS' at the top of the page.

    We also have a MFP Monthly Running Challenge group on Strava if you want to join. I tried to send you an invite but it didn't find you even using your Strava name...
    Is this the one?

    @Aine8046 - No Run the Year is a Challenge Hound activity outside of MFP. If you click 'this link' in my previous post it should take you to the site where you can create a login and join our challenge.
    Also I found you easily enough in Strava, Strava just wouldn't let me send you the invite to join the MFP group there.

    Snowed yesterday; still snowing this morning. Since I will fall short of February's goal anyway, decided a rest day would be a nice day.
    I ordered the chipmunks some snowshoes from L.L.Bean...
    @tramboman - Gotta love L.L. Bean!! They have everything! 😂

    @Aine8046 - like others that ride would be a hard no for me too!

    Common, ladies! :)
    I did this ride with my son several years ago when we just moved to Vienna. Scary, but fun!

    I hiked 8.5 miles with total elevation gain of 3,572 feet on the AT today. It was around 35F at the start and started sleeting before we had gone 100 feet on the trail. It only lasted 15 or 20 minutes. The rest of the day was cloudy and it warmed up to 40F by the time we finished. All the creek crossings were fine but the water was running down the trail in many places. I was glad I wore my boots instead of trainers. More rain is predicted for tomorrow. I need sunshine please!
    Looks like a great hike!

    @Aine8046 Are you trying to tell us that you were flying on your run?

    I wish! :D

    I am still debating whether I should run or not today. I don't usually run on Saturdays. Sunday is my long run day. But my last run was on Tuesday and I would like to get out there.

    I do sometimes a short run on Saturday and a long one on Sunday...

    @shesgotaplan I have an iFit treadmill too, but I never signed up for it. My internet is so spotty, I assume it wouldn't do well. I'm glad you got to "go" somewhere interesting for your run.

    Sunny, mid 20s F, and a gusty breeze from the south that wasn't very warm at all. Lots of tracks in the fresh snow -- including muskrat tracks, which I haven't seen in a couple of years.
    Glad everyone is doing well and/or better!!!

    @Aine8046 - Vienna is one of my all time favorite places! I think I have been there 4 times between business and personal travel. When I first saw your latest picture I thought 'Schonbrunn!' but realized it isn't... Is it the Belvedere?
