I did it again

11/20/08
Thursday

Well I did it again...I opted for the warm lit up cellar rather than a run outside. To my defense, I got home very late and barely had time to get the run in. Actually I have yet to use my headlamp....one of these nights I will make it happen reguardless.

I planned another hill run and set the tread on #8 grade for the first 1/2 mile then down to 5% for the remainder of the 3 mile run. I planned negative splits and actually felt quite strong.

After the 3 mile run I kicked off a few speed intervals and then a cooldown run with hand weights. For an indoor workout, I was fairly satisfied as the core muscles felt the consequences of the workout.

That is one thing I do like about the treadmill, working the upper body with weights while jogging at a slow speed. It forces the core muscle to work similar to trail running (well except for the ankles which get no work at all).

Looks like I am not working Saturday which gives me the opourtunity to jump at a chance to run with the Trail Monsters......looking forward to that.

Wow! Your treadmill sessions put my training to shame! That really is awesome being able to make the most out of an indoor run like that. I usually get 1 mile into a treadmill run and begin to think about other forms of torture that would be much more pleasant!
