Taking a bit of a rest week this week. Went out at 6am with Kim & Janae in a light drizzle for 4 miles. Roads were mostly ok but had a few slick/slushy spots that were hard to detect in the dark, but thankfully nobody biffed it. Later got to the gym for 30 min XT + pushups to go along with my 5 minute plank last night.

Got out around 9:30 on an overcast but pleasant running day. Light rain off & on. The main excitement for todays run was 6 hill repeats.

Nice to get the first 16 miler in the books. Pretty warm morning most everyone had shorts but there were a few chilly spots by the fields. I was very bummed to see Kim trip and go down hard toward the beginning of the run. That's 3 times this year and twice in 2 days! Hopefully that's enough of that nonsense. Felt pretty dandy during the middle of the run so I picked up the pace for a few miles.
