This morning I took a break from the snow and ran on the treadmill. Oh what a feeling! I can't believe how good a that felt to have grip and to be able to stride out without the fear of ripping a hip flexor.
I did a four mile warm up and then proceeded to work into the 8 X 200 meter at 5K pace workout. At this point in the training cycle it feels very good to do some easy up-tempo work and it allows for my legs to break the monotony of the easy runs. Overall a very good run. I ended with a three mile warm down.
Monday: 53:30 6.6 miles
Tuesday: 1:05:00 9 miles ( 8 X 200 meters, 200 meter jog)
