Chooin' Out Back

Got home and strapped on the snowshoes for a run in the woods out back. Quads feel fine now so was glad to get to chooin' again. However, it was quite thin on the lesser traveled snowmobile trails. On the wider fireroads where it was more packed to begin with, not bad. But the rest? Pretty thin. 

The jutting rocks and thin snow barely covering large chunks of granite slowed me down quite a bit in some spots. It was doable, but just had to be very careful, as not to damage a cleat. Still, I think I'll simply YakTrax on the trails until we get some more snow, which should be soon. 

Good run to have in the bank. The increase in mileage the past several weeks has led to a further reduction in weight and an increase in hunger. Metabolism is getting pretty jacked. Nice that I've been having great energy lately also. All things very much on track for now. Pretty stoked. 

Ten miles on roads planned for tomorrow. 

Snowshoe ran 7.4 miles @ 10:03/mile pace. 
Trails, packed and thin snow. 
Very hilly. 
Upper to mid teens, sunny. 
Dion 121 snowshoes, New Balance MT1010, warm-up pants, long tights, windbreaker, short sleeved shirt, buff (for neck), beanie, gloves.
