Cold, windy, and snow showers. The park is closed after just a day of being open. I miss my swans.

PM: 7.1 miles on the treadmill. Did a long set of strides. Core and hips after.

12 x 45-second strides

Went to the gym with Megan. The park is open but we had thunderstorms, so we were relegated to the gym.

PM: 4.7 land miles with Megan. About 9:45 pace.

We ran on the River Bends paved trail, which is one of the nicest urban trails I've seen (as far as construction). She kicked my butt mileage wise this past week. I didn't want to run much faster. Felt pretty crappy but it was in the lower 60s and sunny and I always enjoy a run with my wife. She's running the Glass City Half, which I was going to run as a key race before I fell off the cliff, but I will likely run with her. My plan is to get back into a rhythm and focus on the goal of running a fall marathon PR. I have a ton of work to do and will try to do some short, low-stakes racing this spring to get the fire back.
