So I am lying in bed thinking okay let's get going on a run it is 7am. I answered myself with no let's wait til the kids are off to school so I put on my sweats and peak out the window much to my surprise Voila!! a mega storm. Ah No!! I am not ready for this kind of weather running. Not gonna do it. It wouldn't be prudent. (Dana Carvey acting out George Bush). Anyway..... I wait for a change in the weather pattern. I may have to drag my husband to the PG Recreation Center and do a treadmill run.
So we made it to the Rec Center. The weather was on and off flurries to big flakes... so forget outside running. The treadmill speedwork was now on schedule cause if I am going to pay money to use it, it better be a good workout. My husband ran the track for 50 cents while I paid the big $3 for the treadmill and darn it I forgot my ear phones. Makes for a very dragged out focus on something to get me thru kind of workout. Yuck!! I ran a modified Allie workout. She is way too in shape for me. Wish I had a young bod. It was 1x400 (6 min/mi), 1x 800 (6:18), 1 x 1600 (6:40), 1x 1600 (6:40), 1 x 800 (6:27) 1 x 400 (6:00). All with 2 minute recovery at 8:45 to 9 minute pace. First warmed up with 18 minutes at 845 pace then cooled down with 7 minutes of gradually taking the pace down from 9 minutes. Glad that's over mainly because of the cleaners around me. The fresh air outside felt awesome!! Hope I don't get a headache later. I usually do in this situation. But I am hoping to be doing better these days.
