After enjoying a few weeks of spring-like weather, winter is back!! We all knew it was too good to be true as there are frequent snowfalls in April......but I for one, had been lulled into the false notion that maybe, just maybe, spring was around the corner. But yes, the great weather was just a tease. I should have known better! To think I was in Diablo a week ago and it was 90F!!
On Friday morning, I woke up all confused and sleepy. It was so dark in my bedroom and so quiet. I had been planning on doing a long run and was quite looking forward to it, so I got up and looked out the window and there it was: a foot of snow!!! Hmmm. That could make for some very challenging running!
My front yard!
I decided to go out anyways, afterall, it was a beautiful snowy day. I just modified the program a wee bit. There was just too much snow to actually run on the trails, so I decided to do the Leslie Power Trudge for 4 hours, followed by a indoor bike ride with my hubby. A date and a movie and a bike ride - woohooo!
The Power March. The Power trudge. The Power hike! (Sometimes, I call it the death march.....) Whatever you want to call it - I went out trudging around in the snow on my favorite (snow covered) trails. It was awesome! Nice and quiet and very pretty. I managed to run a few bits and pieces, but mostly I was just walking really quick, there was just too much snow!
