He is Risen!

What a wonderful weekend...with the exception of the aforementioned snow, which continued to fall on Sunday. I ran 7 miles on Saturday (it was supposed to be 17, but I didn't have it in me), and ate myself into a coma on Sunday, so now it's time to buckle down a bit (I swear I've said that at least 4 times this year already) and get in some good weeks so I can feel like I've earned the right to taper in late April.


Edited: Well, it's not snowing, but it's definitely not going to be confused with "warm" out there either. 8 miles in the books; 3 at "Parsenn Pace" and 5 in 33:22, AvgHR 166, MaxHR 176.

Here, here.

I think we've had our share of snow. And I know I haven't had nearly as much as you.

Just the same, I'm done with it. Go away now.

I think I said that four times last month. :)

Hi Nic

It is funny, but this really is a kind of between time in the training season. I know for me it is a little difficult to be super motivated especially after coming off of (at least hopefully..)the second coming of the ice age!

Don't beat yourself up too much because you have really put in some solid training this winter despite the weather.. I mean how many people are willing to do laps around a parking lot to get in their miles??

Best of luck with your training and that much deserved taper that it just around the corner.

I agree with you. This wind/snow/ cold thing is really getting old. It's gotta end sometime, right. Here's to warmth, and a good taper!
