Cutting it Short

Had planned on twenty miles today but stopped at fifteen. That simply felt like enough. Part of me is disappointed but - being logical - this is a pretty high mileage week and it's not too surprising. I could have pushed on but it just would have set me back. No regrets though. And it does set up a nice seven miler in the woods tomorrow to still get me over 70 miles for the week, which is the main goal.

Much warmer today with highs in the upper 20s, and thankfully the high winds they predicted never blew. In fact, this was probably the least windy day of the entire week. That was a nice treat. Very comfortable running conditions.

Worth noting I got a late start, due to having to wait for a friend to come over and do some maintenance on our other property. Otherwise, would have loved to join the Trail Monsters and run the beautiful loop.

Ran 15.1 miles @ 8:08/mile pace.
Paved roads, patches of snow and pebbled ice.
Moderately hilly.
Upper 20s, overcast, intermittent light snow flurries.
Saucony Virrata, long tights, windbreaker, short sleeved shirt, buff, gloves.
