What you can't see in there is the conditions. This week was another cold, dreary week of running. Well, except for my long run on Saturday, that was just cold. Haha! It was actually nice to see the sun come out during our long run. I wish I had brought my camera because the sun made the snow sparkle.
Mid week was not your average cold and I ran in sub zero temperatures again this week. Wednesday was especially cold! I was really hoping to get out on the trails soon but with the way the weather has been, it appears that might be more difficult than I think. Since I'm also training for North Country Full in addition to Bayshore, I really want to hit those trails. I even purchased a couple pairs of new trail shoes.
I've still been able to keep up with my weights and yoga routines and they have continued to help me keep fit and get some cross training in. As soon as the weather breaks, I'll also add in some biking too. I will say that I do feel less pressure this marathon training cycle. I have no goal but to finish and feel good - well, as good as you can feel - after the marathon.
Hope you also had a great week of training. Four down, 14 weeks to go!
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
