Ran the neighborhood loop today. Still plenty of snow on the lawns, the fields and the sidewalks, but the roads were fairly dry other than some puddles which I managed to leap over at every chance. I attempted the sidewalks for about a quarter mile, but they were just a mushy, slushy mess, so — back to the road I went.
Legs feel really good (other than a lack of speed) since my mountainous 16+ miler over the weekend. I have another fun weekend of running in the foothills to look forward to this upcoming Saturday. A running friend is celebrating his birthday with a 40k run in the mountains and several of us are joining him. That’s my idea of a great party! That takes place exactly 3 weeks prior to my first 50k this winter, so it’s a good peak workout for me too. Yay!
