The good news was there was less snow/ice than expected. I'd say around 90% of the trail was bare. The bad news was I forgot how many small, jagged rocks there were in some sections. You see, the trail itself can be very well packed, so these rocks don't have much give at all when stepped upon. A few hurt a little, but overall it still wasn't too bad.
Seven to eight mile runs seems to be the norm lately. That's fine, as another 50k run is planned for next weekend. Good spacing between that and the one we did two weeks ago, so good to keep the mileage in the lower-mid range for now.
Ran 8.1 miles @ 9:02/mile pace.
Trails, sections of mud and some ice/snow.
Mid 50s, sunny, windy.
VFF Sprints, shorts, short sleeved shirt, Moeben sleeves.
