Well, the weather in Cleveland was very fickle last week. Early in the week it was really warm. I even did my first long run on Tuesday and felt good. The fact that there was constant lightning made it even better. Later in the week things turned cold and we got a lot of snow. Saturday's hill workout was especially tough because the big hill I use was slick and the alternate side of the hill where I do the short hill repeats was not plowed at all so those were really difficult since I was running through about 8 inches of snow. I did at least feel pretty badass by the end of it. I totally wanted to scream DRAGOOO!!!! after climbing the hill the final time :)
Here are this weeks runs:
Monday: 4.8 miles (8:23 pace)
Tuesday: 9.01 miles (7:57 pace)
Wednesday: Rest Day
Thursday: 6.81 miles (8:21 pace)
Friday: 6.81 miles (10:29 pace)
Saturday: Hill workout - 4x 1 mile hill circuit. 1.5 mile warmup and cool down for 7 miles total.
Sunday: Rest Day
Total mileage: 31.5 miles
Less than two weeks until my first race of 2013: The Chili Bowl Classic 5k
Who else braved the snow last week? Anyone else doing Chili Bowl?
