I'm a big fan of rest and recovery and days off from running. Following last week's nearly 60 miles I wanted this week (at least the middle part) to be easy, and I ended up only getting in two runs for a total of almost 12 miles. I wound up taking an extra day off due to busy worky stuff, but it meant that I'm going into the weekend feeling well rested and ready for a couple good workouts.
Trails were super-icy this week which was a good way to ensure that the runs were kept to a slow, easy pace.
Tuesday -Pratt's Brook Park
