Hey it’s Sunday and I am on top of things this week. Working on my training log early. We are in Bloomington right now visiting Lindsey’s mom, Lori, who had knee surgery this week. Have you seen her knee? Look at my twitter if you want to see it. I won’t put it in your face on the blog. It is intense.
Another good week. Lots of snow and cold again so lots of treadmill running for me. I mainly go to the treadmill out of ease of use. It is a lot easier to get my work on the mill as opposed to layering up and dealing with crap conditions sometimes. I know I could run outside a lot more then I do but I’ve been lazy with it by taking the easy way out. I don’t mind it and I don’t have to worry about ice or anything when doing my workouts. I think there are advantages to both the treadmill and to ‘manning up’ and going outside but either way at the end of the day the work needs to get done so do it, whatever it takes.
Don’t let the weather, the treadmill, getting up early, or whatever it is stand in your way of working toward your goal. Enough about winter running and the treadmill.
Here is my log:
Week 5 – Feb 3rd – 9th
Monday – 5
Recovery 5. Easy 40 minutes of running to shake out the weekend. Feeling good with running everyday lately so I use Monday as a fake rest day and run super easy.
Tuesday (Another big snow storm) – 12.5
Easy running with some pickups the last 2.5 miles. Finished at about 5:40 or so. I am really enjoying this type of run lately. Little bit of stress but not too much.
Easy 4 around 8:00 pace. Another week of adding a secondary run.
Wednesday (Stupid Cold Out) – 10 Miles
Easy run with some hills thrown in for fun.
Thursday (Stupid Cold Again) – 10 Miles
6 miles Wave Tempo – 6:27,6:07,6:27,5:56,6:27,5:49
1 mile cool down

You remember My Buddy right?!
Did you have a “My Buddy”? Were they this creepy when we were kids?
