I was on the fence yesterday about what to do and today I accidentally did both choices. I had to go in to Boulder to buy a thing so I stopped at the South Boulder Creek path and ran 8 X 800 with the easiest one being in 2:41 and it felt like 3:30. Very relaxed. I am feeling the benefits now of training high in the hills and then running flat at low altitude.
I bought the thing and headed home to our 4th day in a row of heavy snow. I headed out for the second run intending to cruise easy and enjoy the blizzard. From the first step I felt amazing so I went with it. Never pushed but never jogged either. 10 miles in 1:13:55 with 1754ft of climbing. 7:23 pace and it felt great. Solid day and very enjoyable day. The snow is coming down hard in huge flakes and no wind which makes for easily my favorite running weather. The silence up here is amazing in these conditions. Love it.
