AM: Took the morning off. Should have got my glutes out of bed. Beautiful sunny day. I'll make up for it this afternoon. I'm thinking a 5k pace workout. Either 3 x 1 mile or 4 x 1 mile in an effort to test my fitness a bit leading into my April races and to make lower 6-minute range feel comfortable . . . ish. Hope the trail is cleared by now. It looks like they cleared the section under the bridge, which is encouraging because the town rarely plows my alleyway (only access for most houses on my road).
PM: 11.5 miles. 4 mile warmup, then 4 x 1 mile w/ 90ish seconds rest (~91-92), 3.5 mile cool down. Splits were 5:40.2, 5:38.9, 5:44.1, 5:42.6 or 5:41 average.
Trail was in pretty good shape. A bit wet, but it kept me on my toes.
