Well, I got my day off at Retro's expense. Not that he wanted to run, but he's been struggling to get out the door and I should be here helping him with that.
We started pleasantly on the dike before getting into town where things got sketchy. We hopscotched our way up a giant hill spotted with ice. So at times, we were barely moving. Things got better after that, though there was still plenty of hopping through the snow.
Returning to the dike and having 2 miles of known clean surface, I could tell Retro was ready to gun it. I appeased him as I felt fine and we finished with a 6:30 and a 6:07. My groin did start acting up so this will be the last time we do this.
