So...my parents have a some beautiful land, with beautiful trails and foliage, but with 8 inches of snow on the ground, and a sheet of ice on the old Arkansas highway near their house, the interval/speed workout I had planned for the day was out of the question...unless, of course, you remembered to borrow your Grandfather's 4-Wheel Drive and make your way into town to the only gym that's open. And my crazy, dedicated Dad joined me. He's on track to run a BQ time on March 6 as well.
Today's treadmill run included the following:
2 Miles at 7:13;
4X1 Mile Repeats at 6:18/repeat;
2X800m Repeats at 3:00/repeat; and
1.5 Miles at 6:58.
Including the quarter-mile easy jog after each of the 6 Repeats, I ran 10 Miles total.
Threw in some bi/tri work and abs for good measure.
Looking forward to a relaxing evening around the fire with the family this evening.
