-2 degrees in Payson according to my phone. Geez Louise! Off to the gym I drove.
25 min weights - I have turned into a noodle and had to decrease all of my normal sets by 5lbs.
9 miles on the treadmill. 2.2 mi warmup, 4 x 1 mile repeats with 800 recovery in between 6:22, 6:22, 6:18, 6:15. 1.8 mile cooldown. I actually felt really good for this workout which was a nice change because my confidence as far as speed goes has been completely waning.
PM: 15 min elliptical. Random thought while I was ellipticizing for 10.5 seconds that seemed like an eternity. Is 15-20 min of easy recovery pointless? I often do really short recovery jogs or xt after a hard morning workout because I feel like it really helps after sitting all day. When I am not working and walking around more I do not feel it is as necessary. But after sitting for 8-9 hours I think it really helps speed recovery. But is 15-20 min enough or is anything less than 20 min just a waste of time?
