Trail Run long (Long hilly run) 2:45:00  12.5 mi (13:12 / mi)
I started and it was about 40 degrees. The snowy spots had a nice crust and the sunny spots usually had a dry line, so the first 90 minutes were close to normal. The creeks were running fast and cold and I picked my way around because I just didn’t want cold, wet feet. The last hour was worse. The snowy spots started to melt and it got very slushy and slick.
I’ll send a separate email about my week and why I didn’t have any other runs. I’d planned to do the progression run yesterday but as I was coming home from work, I was exhausted. It finally dawned on me that I’d worked over 12 hours on Friday and over 11 on Thursday and with very little sleep. And I still had grandkids who were staying with us, so I took the night off.
