Monday: 4 miles w/Jimmy on snowshoes at Kilburn. My calves were fatiguing even though I felt decent energy wise. 27 minutes in, I ripped the snowshoes off because my calves couldn't take it anymore.
Tuesday: 3 miles w/Jimmy on Rail Trail. Nice early morning run to try and loosen up before the Millennium Mile later this afternoon. I am tight! Upper back and lower back. Hopefully I'll feel better in the pm. I'm hoping I can break 6.
PM: 3 miles at Millennium Mile in Londonderry. We got their with little time to spare because we got a little lost on the car ride. No real warm-up plus starting with 500 people in front of me equals crappy race. People were actually holding hands and walking in front of me as I swerved, weaved, and juked my way through the throng. Even if I started up front I wouldn't have run too well today. I had no turnover. It felt like I was running 8 minute pace. I ended up running 6:11 on my watch. This has the potential to be a really fun event. Next year it's on!
Wednesday: 0. Meeting after work + I have to go back to school to work the books for the jv and varsity boys' basketball games. Hopefully this zero will make me motivated for tomorrow.
Thursday: I woke up to no heat on the coldest morning of the season. I stayed home to deal with the furnace (it's fixed) then I ran for 20 minutes on the rail trail. Nice and slow w/Jimmy. 2.5 miles. It's cold out there today and should be colder tonight. We had -2, but I know a lot of people had colder temps around the Keene area. Greg probably had -10 in the cruel Pisgah range.
Oh yeah I almost forgot to mention that the run was the best part of my day!
Friday: 0. Just felt lazy.
Saturday: 3.5 on the Rail Trail w/Jimmy. I put this run off until the pm. In the am I worked on chipping ice off the driveway so the oil truck could make the hill. It made it! Upper body is going to be sore.
Sunday: 5.5 on Rail Trail w/Jimmy. I felt pretty darn good on this one. I moved at a good clip. I threw in 3 R paced pick-ups towards the end. 44 min total.
