*I am running. I am running quite a bit and I'm running fairly well.
*I've been spending the mornings that Ryan has early morning hockey practice in the gym while I wait for her. Not running at the gym, just trying to ensure that I will be able to continue to run by keeping the rest of my body strong....
*I have been blessed with some AMAZING weather overall this winter for Minnesota. That being said, I am heading out the door here in -6 F/-21 C here in about 5 minutes. My bottom line for outdoor running is generally -5F but honestly I just can't do the treadmill today. This is the coldest temp I have run in since 2010 so we'll see how it goes:)
*I've become extremely flexible with my plan based on when and where I can fit runs in. There are pros and cons to many of my decisions and changes but I'm a recreational runner with 3 kids.
*The only race I am registered for in 2012 is Boston. I would love a HM prior to Boston and then I am making no plans until after April 16th.
I occasionally spell out my training. For the week thus far:
Monday: 9.73 miles outside/8:31 pace-recovery easy run. Gym-glutes, some plyo and core
Tuesday: 13.1 total: AM-4 miles treadmill/8:44 pace. PM-9.1 miles pm/7:47 with 4X6 min. at 6:52 (headwind), 6:28 (tailwind), 6:47 (headwind), 6:26(tailwind). Goal pace was 6:35 but this was HARD and I was gasping in the wind. P90X abripper with my husband before I went to bed.
Wednesday: 10 miles easy/recovery TM/8:34 pace. Gym-arms and shoulders and 15 minute spin
Thursday: light abs in the morning but unscheduled rest day as I went out for Pizza and out to a big HS hockey game with my family and some friends.
Today: potentially 2 miles, potentially 15 miles depending on how fast my fingers fall off or whether or not my eyelashes freeze together and blind me......
I'm MIA in blogworld, this I know. I am MIA on facebook, I am MIA at book club and Friday morning coffee.... I am fortunately still IA as a hockey mom, a runner, and a wife but clinging clinging some days...Seasons....
Happy running! Wish I was in Houston tomorrow!
