Oh My!!! What a weekend in the high country. Those first glimpses of spring came to us with glorious 50 degree, clear sunshine skies!!! These are the types of weekends that really pay the winter running dividends! It'll make you feel like "Superman and Green Lantern ain't got nothin' on me..." or you, as the case may be.
Of course Lynnea and I woke up to a snow squall this morning... another inch of the white stuff. But this week calls for more of 50 degree highs ALL week:) So, I can leave the tights and long sleeves cautiously close, the gloves and hats stowed and in their upright and locked positions as I soar into spring. Just have to be careful to keep the easy runs easy. This weather tends to make the winter runner a bit excited.
As far as workouts logged: 9+ miles Saturday in a comfortable 59 minutes. Then 11 miles on Sunday afternoon in 1:12. Broke out the new racing uniform as well, to test it out. (Not sure what could go wrong in a 5k though, concerning wardrobe malfunctions). Today calls for 10 at easy easy easy EASY pace... recovery is key today with the big race coming this weekend. I am looking forward to getting the racing season going again.
Also,garnered the first bit of tan in the face this weekend and so I will need to be fetching sunscreen to protect the shoulders and face. It is feels so good to know that before too long, the trails will be clear, the creeks will be full and 12 miles on the trails will be finished with a soak and a sudsy cold one!!!
BTW- I only had one extra part after assembling the weight bench... nothing has collapsed as of this morning:)
