Per the taper plan, another easy five miles on tap for today. Decided to switch things up and hit the woods out back. The trails are still coated in 80-90% snow and ice. Bit more than I expected, but looking at the forecast, there should be substancial melting in the next week.
The icy sections were pebbled though so the traction was very good, especially with screw shoes. Easy mentally to keep the pace slow, as not to risk anything stupid. Was hoping to catch some early morning wildlife, but no luck. Just a few ravens and a guy walking his border collie (neat dog).
Ran 5.0 miles @ 9:45/mile pace.
