Training Log: Feb 16 - 22 (15:59)

Training Log: Solid week of running. Good volume and capped off with a strong pulk run on Sunday. Nice to get some more snow again. Leg felt great this week. A slight twinge in my ankle from Friday's run, but not bad.

Week Ending Total = 15:59

Running 1:10:00
shoes: LS Raceblades/hobnails
(AM) Easy to Steady on north trail to Sandpit. Then ran north along the fenceline and looped back into Sandpit. Very nice loop with good footing on most through marsh trail. Legs were a little tired at the start, but surprised that they felt quite good. Wanted to keep going. Went to Perth after with Duane to pick up dogsled runners for pulk from David Moore (Moore Sleds). Looking forward to getting runners attached and ready to go.

Thursday Feb 19
Running 1:30:00
shoes: La Sportiva Crosslites (41.5)
(AM) Beautiful morning for running. Ran West on Cataraqui Trail on 5cm of fresh snow. Made for a much better trail than just the snow and ice that we've been running on lately. Felt very good running at a steady pace. Added 10mins with all the dogs offleash in the back too. Fun.

Running 50:00

Friday Feb 20
Running 1:19:00
shoes: La Sportiva Crosslites (42)
(AM) Ran with pulk today to test out the new runners. They worked extremely well with very little drag. I just need to do some work on the poles now and all will be good. Felt a little tired today. Wore snowshoes for the first 50mins, then switched to microspikes. Footing was very soft and slow.

Running 41:00

(PM) Easy road run with Sara towards Petworth. Was nice to be on good footing.

Saturday Feb 21

Sunday Feb 22
Running 4:04:00
shoes: La Sportiva Crosslites (41.5)
(PM) Pulk run. Tough conditions with soft snow, so slow going. Felt good at times, but a little tired. Good to get through it. Ran Cat West past Camden East, then on north trail and back breaking trail through Paudyn West trail.Ran on snowshoes for most of the run except the first and last 15mins. Pulk ran great. Pole system is good, but still need to fine tune it a bit. Left ankle a little sore from Friday, but not in the same spot as before. Loosened up after a while.
