I know, three-weekly is nonsense grammar, but you know what I mean.
I also know it’s been winter for a while in most places, but ours has been unseasonably warm and dry. It’s still warm, relatively speaking, but it’s at least finally snowing.
1/20 – 1/26
Tuesday: 5 miles. Warm enough that trails were very muddy and gross in places.
Wednesday: 4 miles. There was a tiny dusting of snow overnight, and I got out early enough that it hadn’t melted.
Saturday: 3.75 miles. I took Kara up into the mountains to find some snow.
Sunday: 8 miles. Went to find snowy trails again, except this time I did too well and found deep, unpacked snow before I wanted to turn around. So I went back up the highway a bit to a closed Forest Service road for the last ~2.5 miles.
Weekly totals: 20.75 miles, 2 strength workouts, 1 cycle class.
1/27 – 2/2
Tuesday: 3.6 miles.
Thursday: 6 miles.
Friday: 3.5 miles, ~1.5 with Kara.
Sunday: 7.75 miles. It had snowed several inches, enough that I didn’t attempt a trail run because I knew nothing would be packed down enough yet. There was still some shuffling through snow around the neighborhoods though.
Weekly totals: 20.85 miles, 2 strength workouts.
2/3 – 2/9
Wednesday: 3 miles.
Saturday: 2 miles with Kara. The snow and wind picked up shortly after we left the house; Kara was happier about it than I was, since she was dressed for it.
Sunday: 4 trail miles. I planned on 5, but had forgotten how steep this trail is.
Weekly totals: 9 miles, 1 strength workout, 1 cycle class. An intentional cutback week because I’m starting a training plan this week – maybe I’ll get myself together enough to post about it later this week.
