What can I say.. another great week. I wasn't entirely thrilled with the results of my AeT test on Friday, which I had to run on the road vs. my prior tests which were done on the track, but coach says don't put too much emphasis on it... so I won't.
Today I ran my long run.. I was scheduled to run 22 miles. The weather is terrible, the main roads are pretty much clear, but the side roads, the ones I like to run on, are still ice covered and have absolutely terrible footing. I opted for the treadmill downstairs... again. Like I said before, I was scheduled to run 22 but I didn't do it, instead I ran 23. I watched a couple of movies, The Matrix (the original) and I am Legend, with Will Smith. I was so involved with I am Legend that I lost track of time and ended up at 22-1/2 before I realized where I was at, so I kept going to 23 and stopped there. The run felt absolutely amazing and effortless.. gels every ~30 min w/the appropriate amount of water and Gatorade.
The next 4 week block is probably going to get a bit tougher... AND I CAN"T WAIT!!!
