Figured it was my turn to initiate the weekly thread again.

I didn't technically run today, that is reserved for Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday, but I decided to test the legs at the gym after coming off the bike.

Yikes. I forgot what the transition from bike to run felt like. Prior to today I had just been walking 5 laps around the track after my bike to loosen up for my swim.

I will definitely be switching up a few things in my training to allow for more post bike run. Need to get my muscles familiar with that again. Should be fun!

Happy Monday to all, how were your training runs?

Got in a 3.5 mile run today. I was planning to a longer run but I was not feeling very well. I think I was just dehyrated. My plans are to run 3x/week and bike 2-3x/week and use the stairmaster to get ready for my duathlon. I have to really focus on stretching as my hamstrings get so tight during my runs I think I will plan on one long run on the weekend and work on speed/intervals mid-week. I will have to see how that goes. I don't have a track nearby so I will have to do intervals using the timer on my watch.

Have a great week everyone.

I was still a little stiff from the ride Saturday, so Karma and I walked it this morning.

1x2 intervals, 30 minutes. It was alright but the trail was creepy quiet tonight. That is what happens when it creeps below 60 in Texas, everyone hides in their houses.

I had to be up really early this morning to play for a (music) competition... I put on my running shoes, barefoot, and ran around my block five times in my PJ's to wake up (about 10 minutes total)... does that count?!?!

I took my New Balance 1063's out for their inaugural run/walk and they felt grrrrr-eat! My shins are still tender but hopefully that will go away. I cannot believe what a difference a half size makes. No wonder I've been suffering. Sheesh....

How about 8 hill repeats in 10 degree weather and a wind chill of -6...

13 inches of new snow on the ground.....that woke me up this morning!!!

now I need a nap!

I am convinced the longer I live Texas the bigger weenies we are when it comes to cool weather. I was fine once I got going in shorts and a tee shirt but like I said no walkers, joggers, kids playing. Then again I guess I was out because I am training, they aren't.
