Trails, Snow and Ice

Great trail run in the woods out back this morning. The YakTrax Pros provided great grip on the thin coating of snow and ice and the woods had that quiet, peaceful winter feel to them. Very enjoyable run.

Pace was easy. Nailed down over 40 miles for the week, which was the goal. The ramp-up is very much on track. Goal is to work up to 60-70 mile weeks for the new year as well as incorporating more speed. I'll post the details of the Boston training plan sometime this week.

Ran 6.8 miles @ 9:37/mile pace.
Trails, coated in a thin layer of snow/ice.
Very hilly.
Upper 20s to mid-30s, overcast, foggy.
New Balance MT100, Yaktrax Pro, long tights, windbreaker (shed halfway), long sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.
