Monday: 5 miles w/Jimmy on HRT. Nice cold morning. Starting to get in a groove. The river was iced up this morning. Someone was already unloading their ice fishing shack down by the setbacks.
pm: 2 miles w/Jimmy on roads. I'm adjusting to the lack of sleep.
Tuesday: 3 miles w/Jimmy on HRT. Calves are a little tight, but feeling pretty good otherwise.
Wednesday: 4 miles w/Jimmy up Reservoir Rd in Pisgah. It was a rainy and raw 37 degrees during the run. Felt decent. Right calf is a wee sore.
Thursday: 4 miles at the Brattleboro Turkey Trot. I ran 21:21 which is my fastest time here. I didn't feel particularly fast as I started behind about 75 runners. It took about 5 seconds to hit the start and the first half mile involved a lot of weaving and pace changes to pass people. I got in my groove by the mile. There was a lot of ice on the roads which made for some more weaving to pick the best line. Cold, fun race. The highlight was seeing 4 of my former athletes and 1 current athlete today. I hope they continue the tradition. It's nice keeping in touch with them. I hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving.
Tanner and Cody pre-race.
Friday: 4.5 on HRT w/Jimmy early morning. Another cold run today with temps around 18 degrees. I got an early Christmas present this week from Gina in the form of some Sugoi Subzero Zap tights. They are awesome - nice and toasty. Greg has the same ones, so I stole his flow and made it better ;) My calves were pretty tight/sore today.
Saturday: 0. Parenting duties trumped running today.
Sunday: 4 in Pisgah w/Jimmy. I pushed the first half and cruised the second. My calves are still sore. I probably need new shoes.
Weekly Total: 26.5
