Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Yesterday (Monday) I did another MLR, breaking from my scheduled training program again. Things have been so hectic that I've had to improvise and Just Run but the outcome was a 58 mile week last week. The biggest I've had in a long time. The good thing is my body feels great and this MLR was better than the one at the first of the week! Probably not running today (Christmas) but hopefully I will tomorrow. The weather is supposed to get really nasty so I'm not sure, again, what I'm going to run.

Here's my run splints. I'm really happy with my HR and the fact that I could run a 7:02 on the last mile shows I had more fuel in the tank :-)

It was windy and cold today so I went to the gym and ran on the treadmill. I couldn't really do my scheduled workout (Track Intervals) so I just decided to make it an easy day. Ran 8 miles with the incline set at 1%. Started out slow and gently progressed until my HR was peaking above 140.

It's pretty quite and boaring here at work today.

Well darn...I thought I could do better on this run than I did. I was really thinking I could run 12 @ 7:30. I knew I would slow down some on the hills but I didn't think it would be that much. Not sure what the problem was except that I couldn't keep up the effort. I've run this similar run (but 10 miles) before and averaged 7:23. On that run my HR averaged 162 but today my HR of 157 seemed too strenuous.
