Training recap week of 2/2 (Pixie Dust Challenge Week 5)

The brutal cold continues here in the northeast.  Although, compared to Boston, we are definitely getting off easier.

Speedwork on Wednesday didn't quite go as planned (pace-wise), but I was still happy with them.  I didn't have the completely dead feeling the next day as I did last week, so that is a definite improvement.

This weekend's long run was a challenge.  The team (I volunteer as a pace leader for long runs for Team in Training in case you didn't know), was supposed to run over the GW Bridge into Palisades Park.  After making it one way over the GWB in brutal wind (totally exposed on the bridge), we found out that the park was still too snowy and icy to be safe for running.  So back over the bridge to Manhattan it was.  We ended up doing the rest of the run on the West Side Highway in a surprise snow storm (seriously, it was not in the weather report!).  The run wasn't ideal, but we got it done!

I did good again this week with cross training.  I can really feel the difference it's making!
