Recent Activities

Training is going well. Sunday I did 15.25 miles at North Shore. It was muddy in spots but overall the trail was great. I got there early again and walked with my headlamp. I love walking in the dark.

I fell once--my first fall ever on trails! I managed to tuck and roll and end up on my back with no injuries. It was a beautiful day with weather in the 40s and 50s and sun. After the walk I got my usual Soy Latte from Starbucks.

After the walk I painted the dining room and sitting room, took down the outdoor Christmas decorations and raked the leaves! Ugh, I was tired......I sure slept well Sunday night.

Distance: 15.25 miles
Time: 3:19:44
Pace: 13:05

Today I did some Acceleration Tempo training. It went better than I expected. My mile splits were:

12:18 (warmup 1/2 mile)
11:01 (cooldown 3/4 mile)

Distance: 6.25 miles
Time: 1:05:07
Pace: 10:25

In my last post I talked about about a cold front coming through. Well, it came and went. Today at 4:30 am the temperature was 66 degrees!

I hope everyone is having great training and a great new year!
