The workout this morning was 5x800m. The trails were a mixture of icy and mud. I swear my phone updated and said that it was 40 degrees so I opted for shorts. I realized pretty quickly that it was actually colder as the sidewalks had a thin layer of ice from the snow melt. But it didn’t feel too cold. By the time I got home my legs were just starting to get cold. It was hard to know where the icy parts were since the run started before 5am and it was pitch black. The headlamp doesn’t really provide good depth perception or awareness of puddles! Once I got into the woods it was more about a thin layer of ice on the remaining snow pack or areas of mud.
Looking at the splits you can tell when I was on flatter and better surfaces!
The overall run was 4.63 miles in 49:17.
