Saturday, 3/11:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: Easy 8 miles)

What I Did: 6.01 miles in 1:01:55 (10:18 pace) before Pre-Cana with Phil. So much cold!

Sunday, 3/12:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: Long 16 miles)

What I Did: Debated running the half-marathon I had registered for all week, but ultimately decided against it in order to see Wicked with Phil (a super nice Christmas present from his parents!). The show was at 1PM which was inconvenient in and of itself and it was going to be 15 degrees warmer (i.e. real feel of 12 degrees vs. like -5 degrees) in the afternoon, so I opted to run then. Luckily Fiona had been in Lake Placid where it was even colder and hadn’t run yet, so she met up with me to run 8 of my 18 mile long run with me (I think I ran like 3.5 by myself-we were moooving beause we were cold)! 18.04 miles in a blazinnnn 2:23:57 (7:58 average; 8:28, 8:08, 8:07, 8:15, 8:12, 8:06, 8:05, 7:51, 7:54, 7:49, 7:36, 8:06, 7:52, 7:52, 8:06, 7:55, 7:47, 7:26). Really happy with this run and can’t believe I dreaded it all week. Highly recommend the Zim Smith Trail if you’re in the area-the gravel was a great break for these legs!
