Well March came in like a lion in Nebraska. We had a lovely dump of snow yesterday, and some wicked cold. I made it outside twice last week despite snow and cold, we'll see how this next week shapes up!
Monday - CXWORX 30 minutes and Body Pump 60 minutes. I normally always run on Mondays. I decided to mix things up a little this week and take my cross training day on Monday.
Tuesday - 6 miles, 7:47 avg. I think I blacked this run out for a reason, it sucked. I mean it was hard.
Wednesday - CXWORX 30 minutes and 8 miles outside. SLOW and easy. I seriously felt like I could have ran forever!! The sidewalks had some snow and ice on them in spots, so I slowed it way down and just enjoyed everything about this run. I went out after work, but luckily it's staying light later into the evenings, and one more week until we get to spring our clocks forward!!
Thursday - Cross training 30 minutes on the elliptical and a few weights. Kept this really easy.
Friday - Long run 17 miles. It was 13 degrees when I started, so I was prepared to loop home after 10 and finish out on the treadmill, but it actually was perfect outside! I had to loop back after 10 because I didn't carry any fuel because of the cold. I grabbed a Gu and ate half and some Powerade and headed back out for the last 7. It felt really tough at the end. I think I tanked out so bad because of poor fueling.
Saturday - 6 recovery miles on the treadmill. It was -1 outside, and snowing... It is really hard for me to stay disciplined and run easy on the treadmill. I want to just crank up the speed and get it done. But I cooled my jets and ran easy.
Sunday - 40 minutes elliptical and Body Pump 60 minutes. I'm so glad I got two full BP classes in this week!! I always feel better when I strength train!
