18 miles at home on the treadmill at 5:15am in 2:28:16. I started at 6.6 mph moving up .1 every 10 minutes finishing at 8mph. I also included 2 minute hill climbs (5% incline) every 20 minutes. The run felt good at the right level of effort.

5am - 10 miles in 1:25:00. My legs felt tired this morning and with an 8 mile race on Sunday, I took it pretty easy today.

The 8 mile race I was planning to run this morning was cancelled due to icy conditions. I tried to simulate race pace on my treadmill as my workout today.

2 mile w/u

4 miles @ 6:58 pace

4 miles @ 6:53 pace

1 mile cool down

I struggled through the last MP mile but am happy to get through the workout.

Yesterday was an unplanned day off so I put in an extra few miles this morning.

5am - 10 easy miles in 1:28:15. With a 20 miler planned for Saturday, I'm keeping the pace slow this week.

I will try to make a yoga class at the gym today at noon. It's been a long time so will probably be ugly.

20 miles at home on the treadmill, it was icy out this morning. Total time was 2:41. 1% incline except for 2 min climbs (5%) every 20 minutes at 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, and 120 minutes.

The first 10 miles were easy in 1:26.

The next 6 progressed from 8:20 to 7:20 pace.

The last 4 around marathon pace (7:10, 7:00, 6:53, 6:53)

Overall, the workout went great. It helped accidentally sleeping in for an extra hour and getting the extra rest.
