Eeek! It’s almost here! With Thanksgiving only three days away and Christmas sneaking around the corner at twenty-nine days I’m starting to panic! I have never trained 110% through the winter and I cannot mess up this one! Thankfully I have a coach and two races this Spring to keep me moving.
The “dreadmill” and I are spending lots of time together lately, I truthfully don’t mind it – at all.
Runfession: I like the treadmill. Yes, I drive the 3.5 miles to the gym in below freezing weather to run on the treadmill, if that didn’t give you a heart attack get this – I like it.
Alright, enough taunting trail runners everywhere, you’re much tougher than I.
Last Monday: ended up being prescribed six miles so that’s what happened
Wednesday: 4 treadmill miles (loved it).
Thursday: 30 mins CT, Yoga. Did that on the treadmill too – skill. Kidding, that would…interesting.
Friday: 4 treadmill miles, easy enough. I used this as a bit of a speed workout since the treadmill really makes me/you go at the actual belt pace.
Saturday: The training plan said rest so I did.
Sunday: 30 mins on the stationary bike and 7 mile long run on the treadmill. It sounded fun pre-workout, I was wobbly getting off the treadmill, ha. It was fun.
(Sunday is NOT a recommended workout, I was only suppose to do one or the other but I did both because I’m overzealous – oh well.)
Monday: Just got an email from Coach inviting me to spin. Hm. Probably going to happen!
I love love love this:
Happy Monday! Go move!
Do you guys have a tough time getting through the winter? How do you combat it?
