Wow - these paces are depressingly slow for the effort they are requiring.  My mileage is really been down, too... these up coming 4 hr trail races should be awesome... :)

am: easy jog testing out new tights for 50k this weekend.  willneed warmer socks and maybe something to cover the face if its this cold saturday. single digits is a bit much. 2 mi. - 14:30

early pm- using the christmas present from the wife - mag bike trainer.

no bike computer yet, but i put in a moderate effort for 30 minutes. good timing, weather wise - indoor cardio is preferable when its like 5 deg. outside...

later pm: mag bike trainer - moderate effort for 30 more minutes - I'm assuming 15mph

this race turned out well, but not as expected. 

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/420905810

40 degrees, but snow on the trails in Albion, IN this morning.  The course is a 2x15mi. loop with a little bit of road running, one water crossing, but about 80% of the trails were non-technical/manageable.  Partly due to the Saloman Speedcross 3's, I think - they get an A+ rating for trail running from me BTW.

Very good pacing hleped me today.  It all worked out - went out at right about what I thought was manageable, given recent low mileage in training.  Think the splits from 2 laps were almost identicle: 1:55:xx for the first lap, 1:55:xx for second. 

Lap 1: 8:03, 7:39, 43, 34, 29, 31, 38, 33, 34, 38, 45, 53, 8:16, 7:44, 7:34

Lap2: 7:59, 32, 46, 42, 50, 51, 50, 32, 8:02, 7:47, 7:26, 8:04, 8:09, 7:55, 4:31 for 0.62mi. ?  Second lap I moved up about 10 places, and was literally blowing past people - again the correct pace was planned and dialed in from the beginning (I'm very proud and surprised with myself :) )

Yeah, I don't know what was going with this course, but, it was likely that my Garmin was just losing signal.  I also stopped to use bathroom twice and a couple times required stopping at aid stations.  Much different from road races - less aid stations, and they almost require you to stop at them... at least in this trail race :(.  I hit every one - mostly just pounding about 3 gatorade cups and a water since the aid stations were at about every 4-5 miles and I carried 5 GUs with me.  Nonetheless, it worked out for my GI system for some reason, and I managed to not really ever crash.  Prob also attributed to running a manageable pace (especially in the beginning of the race)

Good race - well organized and decent enough swag/food/aid stations and directions.  The 3 hour drive wasn't too bad either.  Might do this one again if I can get some company next year.
