Back At'Em

Felt great to run again after taking the last three days off. Saturday and Sunday were by design, to let the shin splints calm down a little and I also had a lot of grad school work to do. Yesterday... well... chalk that one up to laziness, as the wind was cold and biting and we've been spoiled with spring temperatures lately.

Still windy today, but warmer out. Quite nice, actually. I was probably a bit overdressed. I hit a hilly route on the back roads near the school and felt more in sync as the run went on. Good run.

Looking forward to a 50k run with the Trail Monster gang on Saturday!

Ran 10.1 miles @ 8:14/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 150/164
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Lower-mid 40s, sunny, windy.
Long pants, fleece jacket, short sleeved shirt.

Where are you running 50K? Is it the Fells Race? I ran it last year, but can't make it this year because I have one weekend of ski instruction left.

The next weekend, on 4/4, I think I'm going to drive to MA and run either at the Fells or on the DRB course. I'll probably do 20-25 miles or so at one of those places.

Downeastrunning and I were commenting during hill repeats how strong you are--cranking out the miles at a good click--strong! Sorry about the set-back--hope you're able to crank out those miles.

Damon - it's a Fat Ass that Ian, our Trail Monster leader, is putting on at Bradbury State Park. Small and low key.

Eric - Thanks man!
