March 3 - 9 (8:39)

Mon
pm: (1:31) Great run. 10C and sunny. Ran Cat W to grass hill. Footing good on trail. Calf felt fine. Heard today that I may be in Rock and Ice afterall.

Tue
pm: (:21) Short run to shake out the legs. Trails in bad shape. Good day to go light.

Wed
pm: (:45) Another storm. Relaxed run on snow covered roads in Crosslites. Felt ok. Left calf still sore, but babying it. Stretching and massaging lots. Got laser on it today too.

Thu
pm: (:25) Easy run on road. Feeling pretty well rested

Fri
pm: (:20) Ran easy on trails in Pittsfield Vermont after driving all day. Snowshoe marathon tomorrow morning.

Sat
am: (4:42) Pittsfield Snowshoe Marathon. Tough course. 4 x 6.55mi loops. About 1hr to get up and under half hour to get down the mountain. 1700ft of elevation gain each loop. Very steep climbs. Not very runable. Nasty weather. +2C & freezing rain, with heavy rain after a couple of hours. Started getting pretty wet and cold, and slowing down on third loop. Stopped after 3 loops. Good day of training and want to leave something for Rock and Ice.

Sun
am: (:35) Nice easy snowshoe run at Mountain Top Inn near Rutland Vermont. Legs didn't feel too bad.

Weekly Total = 8:39
~ Got confirmation that I am running Rock and Ice Ultra (http://www.rockandiceultra.com/) in two weeks! Thrilled to be doing it and will be writing reports for Breathe Magazine at http://www.breathemag.ca/ . Once I found out I was doing that for sure, it affected somewhat what I wanted to get out of Pittsfield Snowshoe Marathon. Glad I stopped at 18miles and feel like it was a good long effort leading up to R&I.
