Newtone - 8.1 miles in 70:15. Did 15 x 1 minute on/off descending paces for the first 10, back up and then down for the last 5. It will serve as a bench mark for now.
2 mile walk communute to the gym.
Converted my Newton Trainer 4s to screw shoes. I went with stainless because water and salt will probably eat away at the regular zinc plated ones after a while. I tested them out and tried a short uphill in my ice-covered alleyway, toeing in as much as possible. They work remarkably well. I was having so much fun I ALMOST didn't notice the 3 degree temps.
