26.2 miles at the Olympic Oval, 8:58 pace.  I'm pretty confused about the results and the math of the laps but it's not like it really matters.  I had absolutely no intent of running a marathon on an indoor track.

I signed up yesterday morning because I wanted to hangout with Becca.  I ran the first 2 hours with her and then she had to leave.  I figured I'd find someone else to talk to and keep running around in circles.  I just ran at whatever pace other people who wanted to talk were running...I did not care at all.  I finished the marathon and then walked around for a bit.  

I thought about seeing how much longer I could go but I'm running 32 miles next Sat so I didn't want to push my luck.  I've basically reached an entirely new level of complete insanity even for me.  But it was fun and I'm not really sore at all which is nice.  My IT band is just a little tight from running 100 laps on a track...

I thought I was on the mend and heaven forbid I spend another day in bed.  I'm like the opposite of lazy-tv-watching type if there is a term for that....crazy?  Yep thats me!  I made it 4 miles on the TM with only 3 stops and then walked it out.  I'm so sick of being sick.

30 miles, ~9:20-9:30ish pace.  Nothing like running a good cleansing 30 miler to kick the flu. :-)

My cutest friend Heather turned 32 and has always wanted to do the Birthday miles thing.  I had an absolute blast helping her make it happen!  Nothing like hanging out with some of your favorite people for 5 hours.  My sister joined for the last 10 mile loop and all of my nieces & nephews were waiting to swim after 30.  So yes I am a total slacker and stopped while the girls went out and finished.  I'm really proud of Heather and glad I have friends that are as crazy as me.  It was such a fun and memorable day.

8.5 miles, 7:15 pace.  Some days I drink enough caffiene before I run to make me fantasize that I can be fast for a day....ha!

10 min WU

16 x 1 min on/off @ 5:56 AP

2 min easy

1 mile @ 6:45 pace

10 min CD

The plan for 2015 is to train for 5k/10k and a 50 miler.  Well at least thats the plan for today.:)  It'll probably change tomorrow.

5 with Megan on the riv trail, 9:00 pace

Hopped on the TM to try out some tempo miles, 6:58, 6:53, 6:48, 6:44, 6:39.  I wanted 6 my body was done at 5 so we comprimised and I pushed it out another half mile at 6:31 pace.  1.5 cd.  This was definitely not easy for me as my speed is lacking right now.  But I really want to expirement with some training and practice going from slow to fast and back to slow.  As I really consider this ultra thing I want to kind of prove to myself that I can transition with pace and keep going no matter how fatigued I feel.

So I will take the hard/hard, easy/easy approach and see how it works for me.  Meaning I'll really push my two workouts a week but the recovery days will probably be 9+ min pace with my sister.  My feet can't really handle more than ~40-60 min at a fast pace.  I'm obviously changing my gait or the way I land when I run fast...so it seems like a good year for me work on improving my speed and try my luck at an ultra.  The way I see it I've basically 'accidently' already done the training so I may as well see it through and just run one. :)  This coming from the girl that has always said she hates distance.  Ha!  Never say never!

I think I may be having another midlife crisis but I'm just going to roll with it.  Phoenix full marathon on Feb 27th and then I'll add some miles and call it my last hoorah!  Buffalo 50 on March 21st.  I haven't registered yet but I think thats the plan ya'll.  

Time to get on the trails!!!

Weights @ the gym

4.3 on the TM in 30 minutes, 6:58 pace.  I was short on time so I did a quick wu/cd and alternated on/off in between.  Trying to get comfortable with the uncomfortable.  Not fun!

15.5 in Provo with a pretty big group, 7:56 pace.  There were a couple of fast miles in there and I was honestly struggling to keep up.  I didn't feel well, low energy and tummy troubles.  Not my favorite!

10 min elliptical

8.5 mi on the treadmill in 62 min...7:17 pace.  I did intervals because the TM is mind numbingly boring.

8 miles with Megan and my sister and another friend of hers, 8:58 pace.  Nice morning but we really need to invest in a light.  We almost died...a lot.  I enjoy car dodging but the others did not.

PM:  3.5 easy.  Just trying to run the crazy off.
