Snowshoe for 2.5

The Denver area got hit with another snow storm Tuesday night. Tough commute home last night and snowed all night into the next morning. So I worked at home. I had Yoga on my schedule, but with 8 inches of snow on the ground and no Yoga classes at my house. I decided to go for a lower impact cardio workout. Running with Snowshoes. Plus I finally got to test out the snowshoes I got for Christmas.

In the afternoon the sun came out and it was melting quick. Gina and I took the dogs to the fields behind smoky hill high school. There's 2 football/lacrosse fields that are usually empty. I ran a figure 8 course (about a third of a mile). Lucy ran laps with me, Levi stayed near the trees and chased bird shadows.

Good workout, I was breathing hard, especially in the deeper, wetter snow. I almost tripped a couple of times, when I'd get fatigued and not get the tips up. After a couple of laps, I had a nice packed path though and it made it easier. I was concerned my quads might be sore if I did too much and it would impact my running the rest of the week.

2.5 Miles - Snowshoe Running.

It's warming up and melting quick, Thursday and Friday look good and Sunday for my last long run before Boston.
