Overcast, but damn it was bright out. All that snow, snow, snow. My warm-up got a bit long as I searched for a good stretch of ploughed sidewalk. There were some good spots around schools and on hills, but nothing perfect and long enough. So I just did a loop and made the best of it (lots of changing where on the sidewalk I ran).
4x1k @ ~10k pace. Each one was in the 5:30's/mile. Not bad for some slippery running, plus I felt pretty good the whole time. I've been focusing on keeping a good cadence and I think that's been a good idea.
Finished again with 6 hill springs for 30sec. Though my hill selection was a bit limited and this one wasn't very steep. And just like that, I was over 9 miles.
