It is cold, very cold for a southerner. Alright, maybe it’s not that bad but I HATE having to bundle up and put on all sorts of clothes to just get out and run. The freezing rain really doesn’t make things much better.

But enough complaining. A quick update. Back to normal after getting over my sinus infection. For a couple days there I felt like crap, especially on my runs. It was no fun at all. Now I’m back to normal. I had a couple of good workouts in the past couple days.

The first one from getting back was my shortened long run of 14mi with the first 13 easy, then the last 1mi at threshold (4:57).
The next was an uphill LT workout. I jumped on the treadmill with some Taking Back Sunday playing. I cranked the treadmill up to it’s max speed (roughly 5:30 pace give or take a couple seconds- I calibrated it so it’s accurate) To start it off I started off with running at a 3 degree incline for 1 song, 4 degree incline for 1 song, a 5 degree incline for 2 songs, a 6 degree incline for 5 songs, and an 8 degree incline for 1 song. That totalled 37min, then I walked around the room for 1 minute and hopped on the treadmill for 3min at max incline (10 degrees).

That one was kind of fun for a while. It was a change of pace from running the same old stuff . Deginately felt good and much better than when I did this workout about 2 months ago.

Now onto the big running news of the week…Ryan Hall. His performance was insane. Watching it on TV, he looked so freaking smooth the whole time. Reminded me a little of watching elite kenyans/ethiopians race. There’s not much else to say that hasn’t already been said except that was one hell of a performance and perhaps the kick start American distance running needed.
