Personal:

I decided to join to hold myself accountable for my training and because I love learning from others running experiences.  I just started running a little over a year ago and have a lot to learn.  I work fulltime as a Manager of Telecommunications for Intermountain Healthcare and go to school online through Weber State University.  If you want to know more check out my blog: www.runningfortrevor.blogspot.com

50 minutes lazy Sunday running.  Wore a new pair of lighter weight Mizunos that I bought awhile back and felt fine.

Now to tackle the mountain of laundry that winter running seems to create.

20 min Strength training including ITBS rehab

Treadmill run:  9.3 miles in 68:30.  5.3 easy & then 14 x 1 min on/off.  On's at 10.0-10.3 mph (6:00-5:49 pace), off's at 7.1.  I normally watch channel 2 news at the gym but today I had a treadmill without a TV so I was listenning to the music channel.  Towards the end of my workout everyone on the front row of treadmills turned around and started starring at me and I realized I was singing out loud.  "Life is a highway, I wanna ride it all night long."  haha I was totally belting it out.  Speedwork makes me crazy! 

PM:  3 miles easy.

8 mile orchard loop with Jen.  We set a new CR of 56:54.  Jen & I had both done Speedwork yesterday so we had no intentions of moving fast but just gradually picked up the pace and ran the last 4 miles at sub 7.   6:58, 6:53, 6:47, 6:38.  We were talking up until about the last half mile and I feel like this was a really good workout on fatigued legs from yesterdays SW.  We were both completely trashed by the finish.  Doing a tempo the day after SW is not something I would normally do or recommend but every once in awhile I think it is okay to practice running hard on tired legs.  I added a slower 2 mile cooldown afterwards.  I will definitely be taking it super easy tomorrow.  Anyone up for a recovery jog? 

10 min foam rolling and lower body ST. 

PM:  3 miles nice & easy.  I was dreading this run all day for some reason but it felt great to shake my legs out. 8:20 pace

9 mi easy recovery on Jen's hilly route in Salem, 7:50 pace.  Warm but way windy out in Salem.  My training is all sorts of mixed up right now and since I ran fast mon & tues I decided double recovery days were in order.  I should probably put together some type of structure or plan but the "just go with the flow" mentality sure is fun. :)

I am feeling pretty good and my body seems to be handling the higher volume quite well.  I think I am finally starting to get excited about racing in 2013.

I actually planned a workout this morning but it took me 40 min to drive 10 miles to the gym so I had to modify.  I wanted to do a LR of 13-14 miles with the last 4-5 starting at MP and finishing at HMP.  Instead I ended up with 11.2.  First 6.2 easy and then 4 tempo miles 6:39, 6:35, 6:31, 6:27.  I was a little dissapointed with how hard this felt but I still think it was a good workout.  It is really hard mentally to maintain a tempo pace on the treadmill.

Total run time:  83 min

Total commute time:  75 min....and that does not count the drive home!

12.5 miles on the treadmill in 1:34 I think.  Just a boring progressive run.  Metetarsalgia starting to reappear towards the end of the run.  ugh!
