Post-Blizzard Run

Ran 7.0 miles @ 7:44/mile pace.
Paved roads (icy, snowy)
Slightly hilly.
Temps in mid-teens, very windy. Windchill around 0.

Yesterday's blizzard left over a foot of snow in it's wake... not a heck of a lot, relatively speaking, but with today's high winds, the roads were far from clear. Just had to be mindful of footing and keep an extra close eye on traffic since the shoulders of the roads were narrow to non-existant.

The second week of tapering comes to a close this weekend. With the lighter schedule, my legs are feeling quite strong and raring to go. The knee sprain lingers, but I don't consider it to be much of an issue. Just have to be careful with it, and keep icing it. Bring on Hyannis!

What happened to snowshoeing or x-c skiing? Glad to see you are staying healthy. I think the Cape got less than us. We are expecting more snow on Sunday.

XC skiing was out since it wasn't packed. Snowshoeing... well, got lazy, truth be told. Did get in lots and lots of shoveling though.

Good luck!

The snow pictures look fun, though I know I'd be pressed to make a first step out there before having good time:)
Heal the ITB while tapering, and nice to hear legs get a perk back!
