A tougher run on the forest trails this morning to give my legs a hard workout.
Just a pain for the initial 3 miles that were along a busy road that seems to go on and on and on uphill for an eternity before finally coming to the trailhead. At least the trails made up for the tedious road with all of the exhaust fumes.
I had the trails to myself so I could really enjoy the natural beauty of the forest. Just a little snow lingering along the trail so the footing was good.
Overall it was a harder run although running the up and down single track did slow my pace down quite a bit so have to take the conditions into account when I'm looking at my running metrics.
It's also nice to see the days ever do gradually getting longer and the afternoon getting a little bit milder. It would be nice for some beneficial moisture but I'll be happy not to have any real snow.
Hoping tomorrow is a good day and my workout improved once again. Then I just have to see if the February ultra is approved in a week or nor.
