This was probably the hardest run I've ever done, and it's not even anywhere near close to being the longest. Really, it was just ridiculous out on the Ice Age trail this morning. I think we were pretty much the first people out there since the 6-8 inches of snowfall we got the other day so we (me, Rochelle, Renee H. and Sara K.) basically had to forge our own path through the powdery drifts. It actually took us 55 minutes to go the first 3.6 miles out to HWY 18. (It usually takes me about 40-42.) I expected it to be slower but WOW. There really was absolutely no traction on the path at all- what there was of a path! After doing the math on how long it would take us to cover 21 miles at this pace, we decided to do a few miles on the Glacial Drumlin path to help out with the time a bit. I'M SO GLAD WE DID THIS. Becuase the instand we set foot back on the Ice Age it was the same old thing. ANyway, after just under 14 miles we dropped off Renee and Sara and headed back out for our last 7. We started to try the other direction on the Ice Age but got snowed in pretty quick so we ended up turning around and going back out past the tower one more time. Luckily, this last loop the path had started to become clearer as many hikers were now out and about. But my legs were pretty trashed from the earlier miles so they felt very heavy and shuffley. I'm so happy I ran these last miles with Rochelle. I'm usually really good at focusing in on long mileage by myself but today took some extra...fortitude. I feel like my IT bands are going to be screaming for mercy tomorrow!
