Once the extreme cold temps left Colorado, we were blessed with gorgeous weather and sunshine. But… even when it was only 5 degrees, it was still beautiful to get out there and run! There isn’t a day that goes by I don’t consider myself super lucky to live here!
Sunday: 12 chilly miles in 5 degree weather, but we were blessed with bright, sunny skies and no wind. (It was still cold, though). About an hour of weights and core in the evening.
Monday: 2,650 yards in the pool. Ahhhh…. the legs needed that!
Tuesday: 8K workout with a balmy temp of 1 degree! That’s right, 1 degree, but somehow I managed to run the 2*2K at goal half marathon pace. Easy shakeout in the evening to total nearly 12 for the day.
Wednesday: Weights/core, 30 mins in the trainer in the morning. Coaching in the evening for 7 miles total. Paced two ladies on a 35 minute tempo run starting at 10 min/mile down to 8:30, which was just awesome!
Thursday: One hour in the trainer; 5 mile run with the Newton group in the evening. Damn, these runners are fast!
Friday: Weights/core in the morning. Just a wee bit over 6 miles in the evening with 50 degree temps and clear skies to see all of the stars. All I kept thinking about was “Starry, Starry Night!
Saturday: 50 minute tempo run consisting of 30 mins then 4*5mins. Started at 8:00/mile, ended at 6:58 pace. About 9 miles total.
Running: 50.4 miles
Biking: 90 mins in the trainer
