So, doesn't look like Nordic skiing will be happening until we get another good snowfall. Hopefully it'll be soon. I'm really enjoying the skiing and it's kicked my butt in ways I didn't know were possible. I mean that in the most complimentary fashion.
I tried to think positive and embrace this evil warm weather with a road run in the Vibram Five Fingers this afternoon. I told myself this winter that whenever the temperature gets above 40 degrees, I'd take advantage of it and run in the Vibrams even if it meant sacrificing distance and/or pace. I'm still only comfortable doing a little over five miles in them on the roads slowly until I can do more runs in them regularly and ramp up properly, so that's what I did today.
Ran 5.2 miles @ 8:33/mile pace.
Lower 40s, partly sunny, windy.
Vibram Five Finger Sprints, shorts, windbreaker, short sleeved shirt, cap.
