Back to work

5 km on the treadmill on my meal break today.   Not nearly as interesting as the last 5 days but I am always glad to turn a work day into a fitness opportunity.

Trail Sunday

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 ...

Taking it to the streets!

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.

Snowshoe Friday

5.3 km snowshoe run done this afternoon.  Didn't really need the float but the ground was super uneven so I appreciated the stability.

Track at the Y

 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!

Looping Snowshoe Run

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!
