Today it was raining ..varying from major dumpage mode to light sprinkles so we hit the treadmill to keep from getting our prissy little feet wet.
I won't complain about the treadmill since I've been reading ENDLESS FROZEN BLOG POSTS.......seems part of the Earth has cracked off with these guys and is heading off toward Pluto. Maybe you guys can get it reinstated as a planet if you are living out there now 8/
Many reports of mild injuries from running on the slippery snow, not to mention frozen faces, aborted runs, etc. Check out my blogroll if you want to see some frozen tundra.
So, the treadmill is just fine, thankyouverymuch.
I ran 8.3 miles at 9:22 min/mile average...about 4 miles of that at 9:00. It felt pretty good...I'm not in peak condition or this would have been much easier but I'm good for next Sunday where I'm probably shooting for a fairly easy 10:00-10:15 pace...i.e. finish sub-4:30-ish.
Weather still holding for next Sunday: 47F/67F, sunny, no wind.
