I’ve tried to run at least once a week during this ski season. It works as a quick workout, for recovery or some cross-training. It should also help with the springtime transition from ski season, the ramp-up in road miles, and will hopefully stave off the inevitable injuries that come from not having run for 3 to 4 months.
The day after the Bogburn, I ran an easy 50 minutes. My legs were tired but felt better throughout the distance; my arms were ready to fall off from the previous day’s race. I consider it “distance” because this is typically the longest I’ll run even during the running season. It has been reassuring to be able to carry that through the ski season.
