Thurs: Took a rest day and avoided the worst of the snowy weather.
Fri: Core class and pulled forward the second session of the week. Fast km's were fine but the recovery back to 140 HR took longer as the session went on.
Sat: Felt fresh - easy 17km in 75mins. Right knee was a little tight afterwards which is odd.
Sun: Hooked up with the sportsworld sunday run. Kept it below 140 HR for the 19km in 90mins. Tried at the end and will take an easy day Monday. Knee was fine.

All in 122km for the week.
