3.73 morning run
This was one of the days you just don't want to get out the door and find everything to do around the house to avoid it. I managed to at least get a short one in.
4.41 evening run
This was the redemption run making up for the morning. I felt like I could have run all night...but had to get home to get dinner ready!
Friday 2/15 -Trail
8.29 morning run with Matt
This was one of the great runs. Cold, ice covered trail with a great training partner. We jumped into a good pace and good conversation and before we knew it, had run longer than we were planning for the time we had. Out and back with the headlamps before the work day. Couldn't think of a better way to start the day.
Sunday 2/17 -Trail
14.78 (Garmin total) (15.5 total) with Matt
|One of the creek crossings|
My first time exploring a new trail at Green Lane Park. Since my Garmin reset the night before, I got it started late while I turned the hr function back on. I had a great guide and even though it was cold, windy, and hilly, it was an awesome morning. I can't wait to get back and check out even more of the trails. I was more than glad to be wearing wool socks that morning from the wet ground, mud, and ice you couldn't avoid breaking through.

Weekly Total: 42.77
My highest week so far with my longest run as well. I like being out on the trails so much more and am really enjoying training this year more than ever. I couldn't be more excited for this year.
Go get some miles.
(here's a super easy recipe too)
Ahhhh the glory of the slow cooker!!!! Super easy throw together on Saturday before work.
2.5lb. Grass fed chuck roast

Throw it all in the slow cooker, set the timer (I did 9 hours), and enjoy when you get back home!!
