Snowing pretty hard out this afternoon and 15 degrees out to boot, so I took the safe but boring option of running multiple 4/10 mile laps around the school I teach at to get in 7.5 miles. Roads were in bad shape elsewhere, but the parking lot was pretty well packed down from the traffic of the mass exodus of students and faculty once it was time to go.
Took the pace slow for recovery, which worked out well since pushing the pace in these conditions generally isn't a very good idea. Was glad I got it done, but obviously not the most exciting run. This clip pretty much sums up the experience.
This was the first of two rounds of snow, the second and much bigger wave is supposed to roll through tomorrow. Looks like it'll be a snow day, so I'll likely take the 36" snowshoes or backcountry skis into the woods out back for some cross training.
Ran 7.5 miles @ 8:44/mile pace.
