|A quick look out meant it would be a rough run. Sleet was starting to accumulate.|
The number of runners yesterday morning was down, and I think that is directly related to the messy weather and messy roadways. Over the course of the morning, we saw sleet, snow, freezing rain, rain, and wind. It was a mixed bag throughout the morning, with some beautiful patches of big fluffy snowfall.
In addition to the weather challenges, we ran quite a hilly section of our course this week. I will not lie, the hills were a big challenge and really left me exhausted and discouraged. The positive here is that the actual racecourse on April 13th is incredibly flat so my hope is that I will feel the benefit of training on hills when race day arrives...if in fact, I live that long.
My next solo training run will be an interval practice tomorrow morning. Later this week, I will do a write up of the entire twelve-week schedule and I will discuss the concept of the interval runs.
Thanks for reading! I hope that you have a good week and that you will come back often to see how this goes.
