Here in Minnesota, April is turning out to be a real bitch.
|Taken on Tuesday....Sunshine! 40 above!|
|Taken twenty minutes ago. Rodgy is pissed, all his outside toys are snowed in.|
Monday: 6 miles, 6:50 pace
Tuesday: 6 miles, 7:00 pace
Today: 5 miles on the treadmill (1.5 WU, 4x800 meters at 6:30 pace with 400 m recovery)
Here's a mystery: why can I run outside at 6:50 pace and feel completely fine, but 800 m repeats on the treadmill feel like I'm going to collapse? I don't get it.
I am running a 10k next weekend. I had planned to do this "best 10k workout" but I forgot you are supposed to work up to it over 8 weeks. Maybe for the next one???
Some people post pictures of their meals on their blogs. I think I'm going to post the new beers I try.
Since it's still gross and snowy, I felt that a nice rich porter was appropriate.
1. Do you drink beer? Favorite kind?
2. What's the weather like in your neck of the woods?
