Wednesday I made my way on to the trails in Hartley. After the snow we received on Sunday and Monday I figured that there would be a fair amount of foot traffic to help firm it up. I was correct on that assumption as the trails were decent but far from the condition pre-snow on Saturday. I looped a total of two times and felt super doing it.
This morning was my second "steady-state" style run and I continue to struggle in finding the right pace/rhythm. I figured I had it this morning but a little GI distress ruined my 3rd and part of my 4th mile. I managed to salvage a decent run and with the warm up and warm down had good morning of running. In one weeks time that style of workout went so much better I can only remain optimistic about future workouts of that style. Tomorrow I get a rest day and I think I will take it. My legs were a bit tired today at work and I am looking forward to the extra hour of sleep.
