Snow Days

Well once again the Yaktrax came through. I was able to run twice with them this week so far. I ran yesterday and today. The snow yesterday was much heavier then what we had on sat and it was definitely harder to run since the winds are stronger. The Yaktrax did the job. I did have some trouble on this once huge hill since it was not plowed and the snow was like 8 inches deep so it made it hard to run but once a truck drove by I ran in the tire tracks and I got traction. As for today I also used my Yaktrax but it was not as snowy in some areas so I had to run on road that were clear and this is hard to do with the Yaktrax since you have metal under your shoes and you are running on a hard surface it does make your legs a bit sore. My legs are sore from the two runs I did this week since I had to work harder in the snow. My pace was not the fastest but considering the conditions I was glad I was able to run. I have read stories about people in the New England states training for Boston with crazy amounts of snow. Well I think that I will be able to say that I trained in the snowiest winter of all times 70.3 inches and I am sure there will be more to come. Well if you got snow enjoy it and be safe shoveling. I somehow have to do a long run this weekend. I may end up doing a 5 mile loop a couple times we shall see.
