Up Before The Sun - Had a blast over the weekend getting up before the Sun having my first Coffee in the Shack. The 6th was the best ... 40m was open and 17m was nothing. ...

5.7 km running on the backyard trail this afternoon. It was a bit of a dry run in prep for the -20C Oracle on Saturday. Tights , Ski Pants and Knee high gaiters were in order. Even wore my Balaclava and Ski Helmet ...yes I was hot but that was the plan. Everything worked out really good so I have a plan for the cold cold cold Oracle and I am really looking forward to the 25 km in Arctic like conditions. Chilled afterwards in the forest and had a few brews before heading home. Just a few pics from the run ...

Real mixed bag of running this week, Treadmill, Track, Snowshoe Trail and today it was the back roads of West Grey. Did a little out and back on the 2nd logging 10Ks. It wasn't cold just around the freezing mark but there was a biting SW wind on the way back. Didn't overdress wearing a long sleeve tech T and a shell and of course tights.

43K logged at the Y in Owen Sound today. More or less just like last week...averaged around a 5:45 pace though 40k then did a 3k cool down. Did no calories just 2.5l water and 4 eload zone caps...would have done 3l of water but someone swiped a bottle ....strange. Figured next time I would lay some underwear across the top of the water bottles ...doubt anyone would touch them!

The planned long run turned into a short one thanks to a little car trouble that required my immediate attention. Logged a lovely 5.4K Snowshoe Run looping my backyard trail. Its more like April 3 then Feb 3 ....the SAP is running with temperatures in the high single digits!
