It was a nice morning to run. Maybe the last warm-ish morning at 37f and pretty foggy. It had rained most of the night so it was pretty soggy on the trails so I was surprised to still see some ice on the trail. It definitely felt more like a spring run than a fall one! I was pretty stiff and sore from all the working out on Weds and Thursday but running actually felt good!
I ended up with 3.6 miles in 34:58.
We got a little bit of snow the last couple of days and we’ve had highs below freezing so the Loppet Foundation is starting to make snow. I’m excited for ski season and got out to enjoy the beautiful weather. It was about 10f with no wind. As the man made snow area expands I won’t be able to run here any more so I enjoyed the scenery. There is ice forming on some of the smaller ponds already too. Some of the downhills were a little slippery and I slid down the hill by the staircase.
I did 3.3 miles in 33:24.
I couldn’t decide if I wanted to go out or not this morning. It was kind of rainy and cold (36 with a “wintry mix”). I ended up getting out and had a nice mind clearing run. The wintry mix was a light off and on rain that I didn’t really feel in the woods. I ran a perimeter route around Wirth and didn’t really see anything exciting. My legs felt some of the hills and my body didn’t want me to force it to work too hard on anything, so I just kept running along at a somewhat easy pace.
I ended up with 4.5 miles in 44:41.
It was a chilly morning and my phone said it was snowing, even though it hadn’t started yet. Shorts were a little chilly, but I’m not quite ready to not wear them. With the Loopet Loppet in less than a week, I wasn’t planning to go too long or hard. I did a regular loop and with the Area 36 loop. It was 5.5 miles in 54:19. By the end of the run it was starting to flurry.
I got up hit the trails on this cooler morning. It was still dark out at 6:30am which isn’t super fun. I just did the longer perimeter loop and I was going to tack on some of the event trails, but they were closed. When I got to my sunrise spot the sun either hadn’t come up yet or was too foggy/cloudy to see it.
I did 5.2 miles in 50:45.
