February has arrived and I'm still trying to find some consistency. The legs feel great one day and less than good the next (though, thankfully "less than good" has yet to include pain or injuries). I've been able to sneak in a fair few short runs but haven't strung together long runs.
Still, twenty+ mile weeks are helping to establish a good base for the year ahead. Dealing with the strange footing of pock-marked ice and enduring the cold should pay dividends later. Or so I hope.
Here's the recap (excluding two runs that I included in last week's totals):
|Wednesday, February 2 - Ran a short, icy loop around Manheim Central HS on my lunch break.|
|Friday, February 4 - Short session of post-work hill repeats on Power Road.|
|Saturday, February 4 - Freezing rain and mixed terrain at Middle Creek - The trails demanded post-holing and the roads were treacherously coated in ice.|
|Sunday, February 6 - Microspikes were mandatory in the rutted, pocked ice at the R2T - Even so the footing was still ridiculous - I'd hoped to log more miles but the 7 I managed was work enough.|
