Long Run this morning in the returned cold weather. 

10x (3min. On / 2min. Off) fit within the last hour.  The "On" was only about 7 min. pace at best, but, was definitely flirting with TH effort.  Almost got my 100 mile week in the books (Mon. - Sun.)  

21 mi. total - 2:52:41

Boy, that winter weight is slow to come off - I mean, it has been almost a whole week.

7PM - easy 7.4 miles to finish out the 100 mile week.  1:05.  Cold and Dark.  Had to stop at 3 miles to really motivate myself to get that last 4mi.  Ate chips and a lara bar, with some sweat tea.
