Pretty much the same exact splits as last week but slightly higher effort (~172 HR), as the conditions were some of the worst cold weather conditions I have had in if not ever, then at least in a long time. 33 degrees and raining, which left a good bit of unfirm ice, water, and slush. It was slippery, but workable and mostly an issue on the turns. I was going to run in a pair of screw shoe flats, but I couldn't find the other shoe and my Nano Spikes haven't been tested for faster running.

Weight slowly dropping. Down about 1.4 average or so this week from last week.

I've been meaning to test my nano spikes. That is some great work in what sounds like the worst conditions!
