Looking at West Point maps (I can't go though because I'm moving from PG to Medicine Hat that weekend) with Pia and Will

Lovely temperature out but the ground is still a mix of soft snow/water/slush/ice and I really didn't learn from my run 2 days ago and so made the decision to wear shorts despite the knee to thigh deep abrasive snow in some places. Ran out of energy (too hungry?) partway through so was super slow. Walked parts of this due to the snow & tiredness.

Supposed to be warmup, 4 x( 5 min @4:30/km, 5min @ 5:30/km) but I really struggled with this one and didn't make the paces very often. Partially because I went a different route this time, with more snow/hills/uneven footing which slowed me down. Breathing was pretty bad at some points, probably since I was sick and then didn't train much for a while, plus bad nutrition/hydration beforehand. Was nice to run in shorts for the first time this year! (even though there was a lot of slush and also sharp, knee-deep snow in some places) I think next time I'll do a different route with more packed snow or cleared roads, and probably do 5:45 for the slower ones?
