View from Bear Notch Rd.


Week of February 04 - February 10

02-04 - [Monday] 14 miles total as:

lunch: 8 miles (52:56).  113/41 out and back. Solo.

afternoon: 8 miles (46:37).  Easy run. High St. up and back with Darin.

02-05 - [Tuesday] - 12 miles (1:17:37).  Out and back on the Kanc. Solo.

02-06 - [Wednesday] 12 miles (1:22:28).  From train station. 41 and Ossipee Lake Rd.  Was going to do a bit more uptempo stuff but it's really my first foray into speed in a long time so I kept it short. My calf was also tight at the start so I didn't want to push it too hard but wanted to do something.  I ended up doing a couple miles of on/off quarters just to get the legs used to the speed again.  Definitely did the quarters faster than I was planning, but I had no idea how to run the desired pace.  Without doing this on the track or over a measured distance (where I could do a check at 100/200, etc, it was a bit tough for me to gauge exactly so I just ran hard for a quarter mile. Quickly peaking at the watch pace was useless.  It's not accurate enough in short intervals like that. It bounces all over the place.  Also, the rolling roads made it tougher to figure out and the roads were a little messy in all the wrong places. But at the end of the day, it's a step in the right direction.

02-07 - [Thursday] - 9 miles (1:01:16).  113/41 out and back. Solo.

02-08 - [Friday] -

lunch: 7 miles (50:48) - solo Madison roads.

pm: 6 miles (46:46) - w/ Darin. Up and back High St.

Derrick and I on the way back up Bear Notch
02-09 - [Saturday] - 15.6 miles (2:04:45) - Snowshoe run. Bear Notch Rd. from Kanc side. Up to top junction into Experimental Forest, then looped down onto Bear Notch again and then down to the gate. Then back up and over all on Bear Notch.  With Derrick Hamel. 

02-10 - [Sunday] 6.2 miles (47:17) - Easy roads to cap off the week.  Was supposed to do a longish workout w/ Jeff Goupil in the late morning here, but unfortunately I had to bail on him.  My legs were just a little too banged up from yesterday to do the planned tempo miles he wanted to do.

Weekly Summary:  82 miles.

Good week after a forgettable one last week.  Moving in the right direction and feeling decent.  Legs are a bit banged up after snowshoe running for only the second time in a couple years.  It was a good time on Saturday w/ Derrick.  Perhaps there's one or two of those type efforts left in the season but honestly I cannot wait until Spring.  This cold and snow sh*t has got to stop.
