12/4 – 12/10: 19 miles (actually 19.4 but half my warmup didn’t make it onto Strava), including the Ted Corbitt 15K in Central Park. I started off too far back (runners from other corrals had already moved up to where mine was), so the whole first mile was off. But then I got into my groove and was able to hit some goal half pace miles! The snow started really coming down at mile 8 but I was able to hammer it in.
12/11 – 12/17: 23.1 miles. I was hoping to make it a cool 30 but skipped my Sunday recovery run due to seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi late the night before then having earlyish brunch plans. I had some cool runs, namely 3 miles in the snow in Williamsburg (2 of them around a half-snowy McCarren Park Track), the Pace Checker workout from Kara Goucher’s Half Marathon plan (8 x 800m at goal half pace, done on the treadmill since sidewalks were slushy and icy), and 10.1 along Brooklyn Bridge Park and across the Williamsburg Bridge to Manhattan.
Can you believe I took no pictures of my food for two weeks?
