Changed up for a long run and out the door at 12:20ish. 14++ miles (1:39:54) on my own. Calves were tight for the first 9 miles or so. Stopped and stretched. Stopped again quickly a few miles later for a bathroom break. Snow works well as toilet paper. It was a magnificent day because the weather allowed me to rock shorts. Felt epic. Back to stretch, foam roll and make a diesel protein shake. Protein powder, milk, ice cubes, spoonful of peanut butter, chocolate syrup, white chocolate chips and a whole banana. Magic Bullet to blend that right up.
Kimber and I made creamy apple oatmeal in the slow cooker before I left for my run. I had a bowl of that and followed it with a decent sized bowl of Honey Combs. The spoon is an standard size spoon for eating. You can use that for a comparison.

Look what we found at the laundromat (Chelsea puppers!)
Home by 9pm. Chilled and bed by 10 or so.
The week was almost exactly what I planned for. 70 miles. 2 quality workouts, a couple quick paced runs, and a long run. The only thing was I only lifted twice this past week. It will be another 2 day lift week because the Greater Boston Track Club Meet at Harvard in Massachusetts is on Sunday. Mile/800 double!
