Ice, Snow and Dirt

Short, easy and fun trail run in the woods out back. About a week and a half ago, there was still a lot of snow. Was happy to see a lot of it has melted. Trails were roughly 50% bare ground and 50% ice/packed snow, but those sections were pebbled and soft enough to provide good footing without being deep enough to posthole. Nice to know the trails are a sound option again without any special gear required.

Obviously, a very light week ahead. Will go something like this:

M - rest
T - 3-4 miles easy
W - 4-5 miles w/ 2-3 miles @ MP
H - 3-4 miles easy
F - 2-3 miles easy or rest
S - 2-3 miles easy
S - rest

Ran 3.5 miles @ 9:53/mile pace.
Trails, 50% ice/snow, 50% bare ground.
Very hilly.
Mid 40s, mostly cloudy, breezy.
New Balance MT110, shorts, long sleeved shirt.
