I haven't done any specific training this winter but run a mix of long and short distances. I'm at the point where I know I'll finish but don't know how well. Most years I complete Colchester between 2:00 and 2:10. This year was 2:17. Don't know why and don't care. My new attitude about finish times doesn't let me worry. Finishing is the only goal. I wore my "old guy" shirt for a few laughs.

Start of March
The warm weather at the end of February melted all the snow. It's amazing how in onbe week the trails are clear and dry. There have been some beautiful morings for running. Yesterday I went fro a long 15 mile run up the Farmington River Trail. Very nice sunny morning althgough cool. My time was 2:55 which is an 11;41 pace. Need more of these before the Lake Waramaung 50K at the end of April.
Today was a simple 6 miler out to Sessions Woods. Basically a recovery run. Ended the week with 56 miles.
