Total Distance

AM - 5. the storms tuscaloosa is supposed to suffer through all week were just starting to roll in. a drizzle during my shakeout turned into heavier rain on my drive home, and 30 minutes later it was raining hard enough that flooding started. guess it's a treadmill day.

AM2 - 9-mile progression on the treadmill at a slight incline. ran the first 5 in 31:30, the next 3 in 18:00, and decided my original plan of 5 miles at 9.5 mph, 5 at 10 mph, 5 at 10.5 mph would probably go out the window at about 11 miles, so swung for the fences instead for a 4:57 final mile. 54:27 total time. not the same as running it out on the grass but i'm happy with it. cooldown for 15, man those post-tempo cooldowns feel long.

PM - 5 after work. probably my most taxing 5-hour shift to date, i'm happy i got out to the gym and while i think i could have done 15 easy outside 5 is all i could mentally handle on the treadmill. i honestly think people who enjoy treadmill running should be locked up. vote eugene for president 2036 so we can make that dream a reality

the only reason i actually managed to get out of bed at 5am was i knew i had about an hour before running on grass was out of the question for the near future lol. time to learn to love the treadmill!

Nice progression tempo Eugene! What half marathon are you doing, and when is it? Excited to see how you will do in it!

it was going to be the atlanta half, but with the knee issue capping my training for a couple of weeks i decided i wouldnít be in good enough shape by march 1st to justify the money iíd lose driving up there instead of working. maybe iíll do one after the races i have in mind while iím still in hopefully good fitness
