Our hill workout was cancelled today because of the ice and snow...luckily, I ran on snow-pack on the trail to avoid the black ice. I'm not too concerned with missing a hill workout this early in the cycle considering the conditions.  The runs were solo and really not that bad.

PM: 5 easy

extremely cold (for Virginia), about 19 on the way home but the windchill is 0. I wore double tights, three upper layers and my warmest gloves. Spent the morning dodging black ice and running through snow/ice pack.  Getting it done. Tomorrow the wind chill will be negative. Pretty much impossible to get my drills and strides in with a snow/ice covered track.

12 degrees with a 2 windchill this morning.  Not as bad as the forecast was expecting and I wore enough layers and had vaseline on my face so I was protected.  I'm not saying dodging rock hard ice patches made for a great run but it wasn't that bad. luckily there is a 15 lap/mile track at the gym and I was able to get my drill set and strides inside.

AM: 3.5 WU 5+ tempo run. 1.5 CD.  standard core routine + stretch trainer, dips, etc.

ran to DC to get a tempo in under Whitehurst freeway where there is no ice since the track is still covered. Ran 4 loops of 1.3 mile loop. It's cold, breathing hard, wasn't very fast--about 5:45-5:50 pace. Ran to work afterwards and ad time to get into the gym and do some strengthening and stretching.

12 easy + drill routine and 4x100m speed strides

cold but beautiful out. I dressed properly and was fine the whole run. Ice is finally starting to clear from the trails and tomorrow it will be enough above freezing long enough to melt the rest. 89 miles for the week. Only meant to get in 80-85 but with the missed workout Tuesday, no big deal.  Highest mileage week ever actually. Feel fine.
