I had planned on running this morning. Really, I did! It would have been good mental training to get out there in the sub-zero temps. But, I was up in Bangor and the morning got a little busy so I waited until I got home. By the time I was out the door, it was the afternoon and during the warmest part of the day, a tropical 14F/-10C outside.
Looking back on the week, it went well as a whole. I got in the elements I'm shooting for each week: Interval work, tempo, and long. Granted, I wasn't pleased with the splits for the interval work and the tempo run was a bit on the short side, but I'm pretty happy overall and am getting where I want to be. Finished with 56.3 miles.
Ran 4.9 miles @ 7:51/mile pace.
Paved roads, a one mile section heavily coated with pebbled ice.
14 degrees, sunny.
Saucony Kinvara 2, long pants, windbreaker, fleece pullover, long sleeved shirt, beanie, mittens.
