Reunited with a less hectic schedule for a while now that cross country season is, for the most part, over and I can concentrate more on my own running.

Reunited with Old Man Winter as today was blustery and sleet was falling during my run.

Reunited with my Garmin Forerunner 305. Got it back in the mail yesterday and I finally have one that looks to be in good working order.

Reunited with one of my favorite routes that I haven't done in a while... a hilly seven miler from the school.


Was slightly surprised at how high my average heart rate was for this pace, even if it was over some good hills. I guess I shouldn't be though, given that I'm just a week and a half out of my marathon. I still have some recovery to do.

Ran 7.1 miles @ 7:57/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 157/171
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Upper 30s, overcast, windy, intermittent sleet.
Long pants, fleece jacket, short sleeved shirt, beanie.

P.S. Hope everyone likes the new look for the blog!

Wow, nice look. I typically read your blog through Google Reader and don't see it until I decide to comment though (like now). Very nice. :)

I love your header pic! What a beautiful state you live in!

Lovely new look. It meets my approval.

I would be a bit more careful about tackling major hills so soon after a marathon.
