Training - Week 2

We completed week #2 of training. We are already at 9 miles (technically 8.94 miles). We only planned on doing 8 today but we accidentally did a little more. I prefer to do a little more at this point because you never know when winter weather might hit and set us back. (I admit, I'm kind of sad we haven't had any winter weather at all at this point.) But, it's a blessing. We only have 4 more miles to add and we'll be ready to go for our spring race. Then we will have a solid base for summer runs.

Our runs are incredibly difficult. Unfortunately, the 20 foot GIS elevations google bases the elevation maps on aren't accurate and they don't show all the hills. I mean, there are at least 3 hills that are as big as the big dip in the elevation profile below yet it only shows one?

The kids were champs and slept pretty much the entire way. The high was about 24 today (near record cold) thanks to the high pressure air mass hanging out in the southwest. While I'm not complaining, I wouldn't mind if that high pressure made it's way back over here!

9 miles already, that's great! And no snow? Finally, it's warm enough here that our kids can enjoy the snow. I'm sure you'll be getting some white stuff soon...

Thank you for inviting me to view your blog, too fun!
