Monday: 10mi / 66min in Pisgah w/Griffin. Great run. I started running and it was 5 degrees. The trails were packed by snowmobiles and the snow was cold and crunchy so I didn't need snowshoes. When I finished the run it was 1 degree. My beard was filled with frost. Pretty cool. This morning when I woke up my thermometer said -18F. Brrrr. The only thing about the run that sucked was coming back to my secret hiding spot for Griffin's leash and it was gone, someone stole it. Richards!! Lifted Upper body.
Tuesday: 0mi - Had to ref
Wednesday: 10mi* / 68min Baker St. workout: 200,400 x 4 - (32,64 avg) full rest. Good workout. Stayed nice and relaxed. Legs felt really good on the cool down.
Thursday: 3mi s.s. / 19min on Jen's track @night w/headlamp. Legs tired and heavy from snowshoeing all day at school w/kids.
Friday: 5mi / 33min on Putney Rds. w/Fyffe. Nice and easy ready for tomorrow.
Saturday: 10mi* / 70min Terrier Classic mile-4:26. Crappy race. Legs felt heavy and flat. I knew I didn't have it on the warm-up. I raced how I would have raced if my legs felt good, hoping for a miracle. It didn't happen. I'm very happy for Fyffe running 4:10, Goupil's 9:07, and Lance Flamino's 4:27. They ran great.
Sunday: 16mi / 1:52 on Putney Rds. w/Fyffe, Boj, and Wilson. Good run, nice and easy.
Total: 54mi - Now I need to decide what my next step is for racing. Do I jump back into indoor track and run at Valentine and pop the time I know I'm capable of? Or do I take a break from the track and move on to snowshoe racing and road racing? I'll figure it out.
