A snowy route, and I love it

Most of my waterfront route was covered in snow this weekend and I really enjoyed running it. Luckily, enough other runners had ventured out so all of us managed to trample down the snow so that there was just enough of a path.

I ran 5 miles yesterday afternoon in 47:45.

Today, I was going to do 10 miles, but I was enjoying the run. I almost felt I was out there on a ski trail. So I streched it out into a full 13 miles, done in 2:01:15, not the fastest 13 miler I've done but it was a lot of work given the snow and the pair of YakTrax I was wearing.

Weekly mileage: 42 miles (67.5K)
Year to date: 182 miles (293K)

Marathon training in full starts in one week, so I may take this as an easier week before I launch into the 12 week program.

Twelve miles in the snow is an excellent start-up for your 12-week program. Sounds like you have a decent base.

BTW, that's a really cool training calendar you posted . I need to figure out how to do that!

Snow sucks!! I cannot wait till it rains and we get rid of this! yak trax does help, I have another no name version called get-a-grip.
