MON. : 4 miles, easy.
TUES. : Another hour on the bike plus a tough ab workout. I'm gonna have start counting my cross training days.
WED. : 7 miles, Tempo pace. First time in a while, probably since last summer, that Ive been able to do my regular loop in under an hour. I made it in 56:22. Good run.
THU. : 7 miles, same as yesterday, but in the snow. 15 more minutes due to conditions. Fun run, then 45 minute upper body and ab workout (shoveling).
FRI. : A choice between an early evening date or a late afternoon run. Love won. Good for the heart.
SAT. : Long day at work. Planned afternoon run. Slacker.
SUN. : 15 miles, solid effort. I planned to run easy with a fast finish. I felt pretty good by mile 4 or so, & I started to pick up the pace a bit. I ran hard till the end. Pace didn't really matter because of the hills and snow cover, but I kept the effort up the entire way. Amazing that with just a little training, 15 miles feels like a short Sunday Long Run.
