First entry of my workout journal I'll try to be faithful in keeping this winter until my half-marathon in Phoenix at the end of February, read it if you want ... or not, don't care:
Starting to get back into the flow this week even though I've been fighting off this head cold for a month, and now it seems to be moving to my chest
12 miles Sunday, 8 miles Tuesday, 6 miles Wednesday
Thursday ... 8 mile Tempo Run on Iowa City Hampton Inn hooptie Precor treadmill ... felt like running on concrete blocks - no cushion, I'm sure my hips and ankles will feel it later
Good tempo pace, even though for me a treadmill is no real indication of actual fitness level
9:00 warm up ... 7:12, 6:49, 6:32, 6:23, 6:15, 5:58 ... 7:58 cool down
6:31 average pace during 6 miles at tempo
No way I could do this workout outside right now - treadmill's better than nothing, but it just doesn't extrapolate for me (I think I used extrapolate in the proper context)
Light leg workout after the run, 100 non-weighted squats, banded lateral squat walks, and leg curls
Song of the day ... "Footsteps" - Pop Evil ... "I feel like wakin' up, I've had this dream before, I'll take these footsteps, go higher, go higher
Time to get this going again!
... Be Great Today!
