Back home and rested again. Lots of travel and happy to be home... although.... that means cold still. 29º w/ 19º WC that  was brisk.

Not many people on the bike path today at all. Only 3 runners and a few dog walkers. No bikers, but that is to be expected. 

10 Miles. 4 steady and then 11x30s striders. The first few were steady and then I let it loose best I could. (over a 1/10th of a mile in 30s). Active recoveries and then the last few full miles at 7:24.

Afternoon run. 29º with some cold wind. Steady run, with only 2 other runners and 1 slow biker on the bike path. I did see 8 deer though. Totally graceful in how they leapt through the woods. I thought about racing them, but with the whole family there I did not want to embarrass them.  14, a few fast, last mile 6:47 into the wind.

Bike Path to Tadmor to Kyle Park. 10 Miles. 2 WU then 2 MP+ (7:24, 7:09) , 1 Easy, then 4x400 Intervals with active recovery. Did I mention a slightly uphill? What about into the wind? :) Good resistance. Last 3 easy.

Cold and windy - No I did not copy and paste that. Add some very cold rain and you have your basic base building Saturday run. Just a steady run slowly increasing the pace each mile. Last mile MP+. Fisburg to Kittyhawk to Island to Riverscape and back.  

Did come across a good number of people walking 25 miles.  They were doing a warrior walk to support the Veterans.

On the way back home stopped at some nice trails in Columbus. 10 Miles, lots of trails and hills. Sunny afternoon, lots of people out. Ended up passing one lady a few times, she said "You just keep going don't you?" I stopped.

Last Sat I waited to run so it would warm up to 30º, this Sat... 69º and sunny. It warmed up from there to the mid 70's. My legs were and are shot from 2 days of hard trails. 12 easy/recovery miles.

Sugarcreek Trails in a heavy rain. Made it muddy and the hills tough, but I was able to hit some paces I did not think I could on these types of trails. Good run.

73º windy and warm. Ran from the underpass, to Kyle Park to Troy. 12 Miles, 2 WU and then E.O. MP+ 7:24, 7:21, 7:15, 7:15, 7:07 Considering the last ones were with a semi-strong headwind, I will take it. The front changed part way into the run as we were under a tornado watch.
