This was a week of accepting that the Boards are coming, whether I acknowledge it or not. Just over three weeks to go!
Monday: 5.2 miles in the middle of the storm, dressed like the kid in the Christmas Story. Just couldn’t fathom one more day inside.
Tuesday: 6 miles in day-after conditions.
Wednesday: 6 mile progression run on the treadmill. Legs after. Foot a little aggravated from sliding around in the snow.
Thursday: 5.75 mile bike path run with Will. Absolutely freezing. Rocking brand new Kinvaras and I am IN LOVE with the 5. It’s like the Mirage and Kinvara had a baby.
Friday: Previewed Saturday course with kids at Sleepy. Lots and lots of climbing, some of the best skiing of the season.
Saturday: 7.5 mile run with Amy, in the snow and slush again. Arms after.
Sunday: Nothing (well, full practice test but no running). Core routine.
Total Miles: 30.5
1 arm, 1 leg and lots of core between practice blocks.
Since the Groundhog saw his shadow so we only have a little over 5 weeks to go with winter!!! Unfortunately, I’m not convinced Phil has ever been to Vermont where winters can drag on well into April. My big hope is that when studying ends, these big snowstorms will also be behind us so running isn’t quite the slip and slide experience that it’s been.
For this coming week, my pipe dream is to get in at least a 90 minute run and one tempo workout to try to stay in my holding pattern.
How’s the snow where you are? Anyone reading from Boston or Mass with great snowbank photos to share?!
