Two weeks out from Land Between The Lakes 50 Miler and I found myself still frustrated with the weather. The rain and sleet messed up the local trails thus preventing me from putting up miles and time on my feet. I had two runs longer than 10 miles. One was a muddy midweek run at Eagle Creek. It was a wonder I didn’t slip and fall considering the slop I was pushing downhill and the constant drizzle (later turning into snow) falling.
A good thing about living close to a golf course is being able to run on it when the trails are slick and the roads icy. I was able to get in a couple of nice recovery runs on manicured greens, albeit they were frozen or wet, but much better than running on concrete.
