This Week in Running: 12.20 to 12.26.10

I knew that getting in the miles at the the tail end of this week would be a little difficult.  What I didn't anticipate was the beginning of the week.  The snow screwed me on Monday for my run with Ben.  I also had to shovel two mornings which altered the core work.  Shoveling, though, is a different type of core workout.
Monday 12.20
AM: core
PM: 11 in 73
Should've been outside doing intervals but the snow wreaked havoc on the pm commute.  Ended up the the t'mill sans motivation.  Managed to run 5 of the 11 at 6:00 pace but it wasn't great.  Legs a little cranky from the mini meet.
Tuesday 12.21
AM: some core w/ shoveling
PM: 6 miles
Easy run.
Wednesday 12.22
AM: 9 miles
PM: 4 miles
Late start at work allowed for the am run.  Turned out to be a nice progression.  In the afternoon, I ran some miles outside as the snow fell.
Thursday 12.23
AM: some core w/ shoveling
PM: 10.25 in 70
5 x 2 min
Ran w/ Martin Tighe after work.  We did a hard warmup then the intervals.  We were on roads so got going pretty good.  Two of the repeats were on 90 second recovery (instead of 60) b/c we missed the split.  Martin is one tough runner.  He always pushes the pace.
Friday 12.24
AM: 7 in 55
Tried running on some trail but the snow made it slow.
Saturday 12.25
AM: 7.75 in 57
Did this one real early before Santa came down the chimney.  Started slow but got going good.  A quiet, peaceful run.  One of my favorite of the year.
Sunday 12.26
AM: 7.25 in 55
PM: core
Struggling with a headcold on this one but felt good enough to do 4 hard strides near the end of the run.  Knew a storm was coming later in the day and considered running more then considered not running more.  Not running more won.
For the Week
62.25 in 8 runs
about 3 core workouts
no lifting (gym closed on Friday)
