Its hard to think of more crappy weather than today. It snowed a little this morning which would've been awesome but it turned to rain by 7 but stayed in the low 30s. Had a good run though. Here lately I've been getting uncomfortable (everything from cold to side stitches to acheing ankles/knees) between mile 3-5 and have been cutting runs short because of that. Today I just pushed on through and was rewarded with a few good miles towards the end. Going for a few more miles this week so I'll have to keep on trying to get through that sticking point.

Ran an out and back on some trails near the house. 3mi on road 5 on trail. Felt ok other than some stomach troubles. Never got into a good rythym mentally but that's probably expected on a Monday morning run.

5xt. Went to Jiu Jitsu practice with a friend. I did Judo competitively in college and they're not completely different sports. Its definitely been a good strength day.

Weird day. Spent most of it grading in my pajamas while watching Game of Thrones. Ended up going for a late run.

Skied all day at Sunday River in Maine. It was Santa Sunday so there were 250 people dressed as Santa skiing with us. Made for a pretty unique sight.

Snow run! I was almost first tracks through the trails around campus but I was beat out by some small creature. Saw a blue herring as well. Also got pulled over on my way to the run this morning. The cop said I ran a red light but it had just switched to yellow when I crossed the line. Luckily he only gave me a warning.

There was about an inch of snow on the ground and it was snowing hard when I left the house. Great day for some trail exploration. Wish I'd have worn gaitors but I found some awesome new trails across the river. I kept trying to make my way towards a road after running out of trail, then I had to cross a frozen creek which wasn't frozen enough. With wet feet I turned around and headed home.

XC skiing. Broke trail for 45 minutes in 16" of powder. Tough but enjoyable.

Skiied 3/4s of the day at Loon Mtn. After getting a foot+ of powder on Saturday conditions were pretty good. Managed to get first tracks on 2 different trails. Did my first ungroomed black diamonds which were pretty epic except for the random sheets of ice in places. As the day went on we moved to cruising down the groomed stuff. Then my legs started giving out. My group started ripping down some of the greens and playing on some jumps. I was flying down the bunny slope and must've caught an edge or something and I ended up tumbling on an almost flat beginners hill. I had a good laugh about it and called it a day.

Had to fly out today. A massive clipper syster (no idea what that means) hit the NE and was dumping snow super hard. In order to ease travel woes, my college friend Other Justin (who was home for break) drove me to the airport super early and we decided to run near there. We hit a place called Derryfield Park which is where the NH state cc championships are held. It was kinda what you'd expect after being hit by that much snow. The roads were slick and the trails were knee deep in powder. Awesome. The funny thing about this course is that it crosses a ski resort. The smallest ski resort you could imagine. It looked exactly like my parent's front yard with a chair lift.

Super cloudy muggy day. My allergies still have me in a bad state but I figured I'd try a little speedwork. Was shooting for a quick 10k but I was dead by mile 2 and my headphones quit working which made me call it at 3mi. Still got some decent miles in so its not too bad.

Ran from Furman to the top of Paris Mtn and back. Felt ok on the way up and pretty dang good on the way back. I can tell a huge difference in my downhill running since the start of ski season.

I had 2 dollar bills in my wallet so I only had one option: go run at Paris Mtn State Park. I strung together a few of my favorite trails at the top because I only had 45 minutes to run. Finished up with Brissy Ridge which seems to have gotten even harder.

12x400m @80sec. What would normally be a fairly straightforward workout was made super tough with the gusty winds. Still managed to finish all the repeats on time. Afterwards went to a crazy Christmas party where I stole a bunch of chic fil a gift certificates during dirty Santa. Guess Ill be making the long drive to boston to spend them all!

10x480m @93sec (78sec/400m) Those are weird distances and times because I ran on UNH's weird indoor track. Its 160m. Tough workout and I definitely hit the redline on the last 2 repeats.

XC skied in Maine for an hour and a half. Definitely felt shorter than that but my legs are a little toasted at the moment. 

Almost a 50 mile week. I'll take that.

Just when you thought I wouldn't go for a run, I went for a run. Did a 5x960m @ 3:07 (5:06/mi). Felt good. Had to fight a crowd on the indoor track.
