noon: 5 miles

PM: 2.5 WU 3 x 10 min cruise intervals, 2 min recovery. 1.6 CD

I couldn’t tell exactly how fast I was going because Whitehurst freeway tends to bounce GPS signals. Doesn’t really matter how fast it was. Went by effort. Started blowing snow in my face but buckled down and got it in. I realized winter sucks because snow and ice take routes and tracks away from the training runner.

My routine has been thrown for a loop this week but I've gotten all of the running in with help from Jenn, getting rides past icey roads to start on a clear trail, or to the rec for the treadmill.  Looking forward to crossing that finish line in New Jersey on April 28.

PM: 4 miles with a few strides

trail was mostly clear but pretty rough with rock solid ice that was slush yesterday and random slippery patches of black ice. Snow, cold, and even wind are not that detrimental to consistent mileage but as soon as ice comes into the picture running can be pretty dangerous.

AM: 12 miles. Arlington county plowed the trail on certain sections so we went there to run after going to the rec center an d discovering that they had just decided to close it. Snow is the enemy of consistent training.
