Monday: Ran 3 miles on the treadmill at the Blue Springs Y during a lunch break from a class on the Foundations of Strength and Conditioning. After failing hard week I was worried about making this week a repeat. We got out of class early because there was another snow storm on the way so I went home and changed into my cold weather running gear. The class was supposed to be 2 days long so my daughter was spending the night at my parents house. It was cold outside and not a lot of side road thanks to the first snow storm but I wanted to take advantage of getting to run outside by myself since that doesn't happen that often. I ran 7.5 miles out on the streets doing laps around a block of houses with cleared streets but no traffic.
Tuesday: Ran .5 on the basement treadmill to warmup then 4.5 miles outside on the main road by my house none of the side roads had seen a snowplow but there wasn't much traffic so I didn't have to jump off the road that much. Then I shoveled all the snow off the driveway.
Oh more snow, not excited about that.
Wednesday: Ran .5 on basement treadmill to warm up then 9.5 miles outside. I wore my safety vest and found some hilly side streets that had been cleared so I did a bunch of back and forths on them. Two different people shoveling their drives called me hardcore when I was running past. Just saying.
This picture does not do the ridiculousness of this hill justice. It was crazy steep and long but cleared off.
Thursday: 6 miles on the the treadmill back at the gym ran at a 8:34 pace
Friday: 4 miles on treadmill at a 8:00 pace then went to bootcamp class.
Saturday: Ran 9 miles on gym treadmill.
Sunday: No run day.
Weekly Totals: I ran 44.5 miles which is good but no long run. Long runs are a must for the next 3 weeks.
