Mon (7.7 miles)- Ran 3.2 after work just to get in some junk miles, then headed over to meet Darrin for another snowshoe run around the riverfront in Hartford. Did a bridge to bridge run, some postholing on the East Hartford side while most of the Hartford side was about 6-8 inches deep.
Tue (9.8 miles)- Another snow storm, so my "long run" was cut very short. My face was covered in ice and snow and it was starting to get painful.
Wed (8.6 miles)- East 4 immediately after work in the pouring rain. Soaked. Then I met up with Jack, who runs the Pearl Izumi team that I am on, at Fleet Feet for a 4.6 mile run on pure ice. I was only wearing trail shoes and I really should have had on ice spikes, so it made for quite the adventure.
Thu (8.1 miles)- 3 on the mill in the morning, and 5.1 around Bloomfield in the afternoon.
Fri (2 miles)- East 2 on the mill just to stretch the legs before racing tomorrow.
Sat (14.1 miles)- 1 mile warmup then the Colchester Half Marathon. Report below.
Sun (0 miles)- I hit the scheduled miles for the week and my knee is pretty much wrecked, so I took a zero and worked the whole day.
