Met up with a pretty formidable group for a run at Pineland Farms that consisted of Ian, Jim, Erik, Jeff, Dora, Chris, Lilly, Dom, and Valerie (I think I got everyone?). Plan was to do 15 miles, and I stuck to that plan, though I almost bailed out a few miles short (thanks to Ian for opening a door to get in the miles by suggesting a shorter loop to end the day).
Run went well. I was definitely feeling the effects of this week and was behind the group for most of the run as a result. However, energy was pretty good, unlike last weekend's trail run. In fact, pace was actually pretty on par with what I normally do on these trails, I guess the others are just getting faster. :-)
I'm on track to end the week tomorrow with a good mileage total, so I'm stoked about that. And end it in grand fashion I will, with a Hash House Harriers run... something I've been wanting to do for a while and should be a blast!
Ran 15.1 miles @ 9:11/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 146/162
Trails, muddy and icy.
Upper 20s to start, around 40 degrees at end, partly cloudy.
Clothing varied, shedded down to shorts, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, beanie.
