No I didn't mean Seasons' Greetings.
I have been non stop now for the past week. From shopping to cooking to trying to keep up my weekly mileage I have not had time to sit down and rest. They say that this is the season of giving. I would like to be given some rest time.
I have been trying to keep up my running for the past 2 weeks. My runs have been inside on the treadmill for the most part because of the foul weather that we have had lately. This week though I am back to running outside. The temperature has been in the 20's on my runs but at least it is not snowing and/or sleating.
Yesterday I had a nice slow warm up run for the week. My legs felt a little tired but all in all I feel pretty good. I tried running on the riverwalk trail but found that the train was covered with snow and ice at the 2.5 mile line and continued probably for the next mile because of the shadows. I turned around and headed back the way I came. There is a new section that will be opened up soon that will add another .6 miles to the west end of the trail system. I ran it after getting back to the car - although not officially opened, it will make for a great run.
Today I got in my hillwork as I completed my Skyline ridge up and over and back route. I absolutely love this run and feel that I have really made progress with my running since starting to do this run at least 2x per week.
I am going to try and get in at least 25-30 miles this week. I only have a month until Phoenix, so I need to start piling on miles between now and then. After Phoenix is done then it is time to settle into training for the triathlon season.
