moment we caught a pic...looks like a perfect fam eh?
My runs were far from exciting thanks to the 20" or so of snow we got last week. I still got in my speed work, a 29 mile long run and lots of vert. After realizing how "slow" I've gotten I knew I needed to step up the structured training and push the pace a bit. I've gotten back into my old habit of just lah-de-da running which is fun but definitely isn't helping me improve. With North Fork coming up and being a pretty flat 50, from what I'm used to at least, I'm going to need to hone those speed skills if I want to run a good race. So I spent the week focusing on quality runs and pushing myself a bit faster, especially on the speed work. I guess a week of flat-ish running, I still had over 15k in vert, due to the snow was probably a good thing.
Overall a good week of training. I'm really excited for race season and to be back training hard again. I just feel so much better after a good hard run and when my miles are higher. The boys were excited to see the snow melt. By the end of the week it was super warm and the boys were in heaven getting to play outside so much! James had a blast at soccer and I'm pretty sure may never remove his shin guards and cleats. He actually slept in the shin guards one night.

and you then lose a spatula trying to get it...you just try again...and yes it was 65F
and Rob insisted on wearing snowpants...pick your battles
