Here is my week – in four of less words:
Four weeks into the new year, my mileage is slowly increasing and my training is finally starting to look like training! This past week I have definitely increased the intensity of my training. I snuck in a fartlek (4×4 minutes hard), a tempo run (2 miles at 6:48 pace), and a long run (for me – 8 miles in 1 hour) for a total of 28 miles for the week.
It snowed 2 inches here in Virginia at the beginning of last week and since Virginia doesn’t seem to own plows or know what wonders salt can do, the roads have been terribly dangerous – making training interesting. Also, no one here shovels their sidewalks (or venture outside for that matter) — isn’t that strange?
So there is my week of runs in four words or less. I love hearing from you all and sharing our running adventures! You can tell how bipolar the weather has been by the responses! My favorites from last week:
- Change of Pace: Should’ve brought my skates
- Rural Running Redhead: 61 degrees in January!
- Olive to Run: Chance to race again
- Daily Cup of AsheeJoJo: Race day, foggy brain
I want to hear from YOU. Tell me about your best/worst/favorite/coldest run this week –in four words or less. GO!
ALSO, is it a law near you to shovel your sidewalk if it snows?
