Another day off from work and another visit to Bradbury before the next big snow storm. Today we planned on 6 easy miles and that's what we did. Conditions were better than on our Saturday run, but still a little soft underfoot in places. We ran an out-and-back up the Link Trail then north on the Snowmobile Trail.
About two miles into the run we came across two men with guns and a dog, I guess it's always hunting season for something in Maine. We didn't stick around to find out what they were planning to shoot today, just hoping it wasn't us.
My hamstrings have been tight ever since cross country skiing (classic) for the first time this year on Friday, and all the hilly miles since then haven't helped. At least today's run didn't make the situation any worse. I just hope they loosen up by Sunday.
Overall a pretty casual run with most miles at around a 10 minute pace, until we hit the gradual downhill leading back to the park when Emma picked it up and we got in an 8:35 final mile.
