Return to Pineland Farms

Ah, a true harbinger of spring: The changeover of weekend runs from Bradbury to Pineland. Nice. Trails still had some icy sections, but most of them were easily skirted around. Lily, Ian, Chuck, Blaine, Jim, Erik and Al were in attendance.

Felt quite energetic today due to taking the past four days off from running. First two days were to rest my foot (result of stepping on rocks wrong) and shoulder (pulled it pretty badly from sleeping on it wrong, I think). Both are fine now. Foot still hurts just a little, but today's run didn't aggravate it so that's a good sign.

And the last two days were taken off so I could help out with a school competition (SkillsUSA) up in Bangor. I had students in both media competitions, and both teams took home the gold!!! I am super proud of them!!!

Ran 8.3 miles @ 8:47/mile pace.
Trails, some icy sections, some frost heaves on the trails.
Very hilly.
Upper 30s to mid-40s, partly cloudy.
Asics Trail Attacks, shorts, short sleeved shirt, windbreaker (shed after first mile), cap.
