Decmber 9th through the 15th

As the cold weather continues, so does the lake effect snow, in fact i'm pretty sure it snowed every single day this past week. By Sunday night we had 20" of fresh powder. It be shoe'ing  time!

Mon: 4mi easy. A date with the treadmill.

Tues: 4mi total. 3x 400. (83, 79, 81). I was tired from being outside and cold all day, somethings better than nothing.

Wed: 3.2mi easy on snowshoes. Bitter cold. Heart rate up there.

Thurs: 6mi total. 1 easy, 5mi fartlek. On the treadmill 6:41 pace.

Fri: Early training meeting, bad roads equals no running. blah..

Sat: A bit of a workout. 7mi total. 3x1mi (6:06, 5:57, 5:47) plus 2x400 (80, 81) 3.5 miles in 20:31 (5:52 pace)

Sun: 13 miles total. Finally some solid miles and time...10 miles on the treadmill at a moderate pace, than took the dog out for 3 in our lake effect blizzard. ( We got dumped on, another 10+ inches).

So it continues to snow, making it nearly impossible for good workouts on the roads which has turned me to the treadmill for now. Good news it i can get plenty of snowshoe running in and not be worried about not getting in plenty of hard work.
