Oh the Threshold

Monday 1.25.10
AM: core
PM: 13.25 miles in 83:06
Threshold run. Comfortably hard. After a 4 mile warm-up, I brought it down to sub 6:00 pace and for the next 7.5 miles and ran between 5:55 and 5:46 pace. I didn't want to go faster than 5:46 b/c I didn't want to turn this run into a different type of workout. Finished w/ a 1.75 mile cooldown. Overall, I felt good but not great. Post run I was fatigued. Some days come easier than others and this was not one of those days.

Tuesday 1.26.10
AM: core
PM: 10 miles in 72:02
It's staying lighter longer. Managed just about half of the run on trails. All the rain on Monday did a funny thing to the trails. Formerly, the trail was hard packed w/ snow which allowed the foot to get a good grip. Now, post rain, the snow is gone but thick sheets of ice w/ puddles on top remain on the paths. Fortunately, this phenomenon only occurs on the most used trails. It's slippery, though, so you have to slow down your pace.

Wednesday 1.27.10
AM: 63 minutes of bike on the indoor trainer
PM: 2.25 miles in 17:35
Easy day. Ran in the pm to shake it out a bit and pick up the car from the mechanic.
