Take a look at the picture below and use some sin/cos/tan action to give me the angle I've got my treadmill rigged to!
Not long after that post was taken (you can see him appearing stage left in the above photo), Parsenn appeared, stood in front of me, and wondered why exactly I would waste my time on something like Geometry when I could be outside with him playing in the snow.
Speaking of snow...here's a photo of me being told I'm not allowed to re-enter my home until I get rid of all the outer clothing that was worn while on snow removal detail. Welcome to Wisconsin! Today included a total of 5 hours outside clearing snow from my driveway, my sidewalk, and my neighbors' driveways...
In other news, I got in a couple decent runs this week. I'm battling a bad back--I know...not a good thing for a chiropractor to have--so I've limited the miles in favor of yoga and other activities. I ran 7 miles at sub-3 pace on Thursday, with a couple extra miles for a warmup, and then on Saturday, before the storm arrived, I ran 5 repeats of a local Ice Age Trail hill. I'm very disappointed to learn how little overall elevation change there is on this hill. But, then again, considering the events I'm training for (St. Louis Marathon, Ice Age 50K, and later on, Glacial Trail 50K again), I guess I don't need a TON of elevation. I only need the ability to hold a decent pace while doing a little bit of elevation over and over and over again.
