        So tomorrow should be fun.

        35F with 80% chance of snow and 9 mph winds. I’m probably going to over dress with a cold gear top and tights. Plus headcover and gloves. Checkers or wreckers.

                  Great run there, darkwave!

                   

                  44 miles this week.  Did 10 miles out in the rain this morning (give myself an A for effort there, I did NOT want to get out of bed for that!) and 2 X 1.5 mile hilly intervals yesterday morning, everything else was easy.

                  I have another 5K, on the roads this time, in a few weeks.  I'm hoping to show considerable improvement from the 22:20 track 5K I turned in last week.

                    Thanks, though you're omitting that I got beat by not one, not two, but THREE women in their 50s....  (not sure what emoji belongs there...)

                     

                    I was pretty happy with it.  I felt like I competed very well.  Would have liked to have broken 25 minutes, but I'm just not in that shape yet.  Gorgeous day, so I'm glad I came up.  If only NYC would have more races in Manhattan that started at 9 am or later, with same day bib pickup (those being necessary criteria for me to be able to race there as a day trip).

                     

                    Race report is here.

                      Awesome job. Maybe those women hang out in the “I’m hitting all these major PRs later in my life. It’s all due to my training” circles.

                       

                      I canceled the race, then tried a hard effort. The warm up showed uncleared roads. There must have been an excessive amount of traffic after that because it was somewhat runnable so I tried to pick up the pace. I couldn’t get below 7 if I tried and 6 miles actually felt longer and harder than a workout. Tuesday workout is back on. I do agree that Racing is a good skill to keep sharp.

                            After a pitiful January of only 84 miles, I'm likely just doing Cherry Blossom as a fun run. Today is the best I've felt in about a month, still congested, but finally don't feel sick. A poor January and need of a mental brake from training has led to taking some time off from coaching. Just going to run on my own for a few months, probably only on my off days, so 4 days a week. Hoping to just stay in some kind of shape and enjoy running. Planning to get on the trails a little more. Will still try to vary the paces throughout the week too.

                                DWave - Killer 4 miler! The travel/sleep/eating arrangement seems so odd to a person from my area of the country.


                                Rovatti - Best of luck with the surgery and recovery.


                                Brew - Bummer on the road conditions. Course looked like a nice little 5k loop, with some decent hills. Some of it right on the border with that state to your left.

                                 

                                Ace - Glad you're not feeling sick any longer. Hopefully that upward trend continues.


                                Me - Last week was largely a bust, which sums up the running year so far for me. Two good runs early, then I missed a couple days with silent migraines (nausea + vertigo, but no pain). I planned on pushing my LR from Saturday to Sunday so I could be home that morning since DD1 had a friend stay over for her birthday. That didn't pan out when a GI bug hit me early Sunday morning. I'm over that now, but still feeling a bit weak, if that's the right word. I'm now hoping to get in a workout and one, maybe two, easy runs before heading with the family to go skiing for about a week. It may be wishful thinking, but I'll at least have my running gear with me so maybe I can get a couple mountain-ish runs in while I'm there.
