Run Day 17 – Blistering

Blistering cold.  I’m glad I retreated to the treadmill and saved myself the potential pain of frostbite.  Sticking with my regimen of active rest on days I used to fully rest from running.  I’ve been feeling much stronger in this regimen, but it’s only day 17.  We’ll see how I hold up with eating better, cross-training and running at different distances and paces to stay fresh.

I climbed the ladder on the treadmill today by increasing my speed every 1/4 mile.  Started out very slow and ended over 7 mph for an average pace of 8:53.  Only did a 5K to keep the distance down and then walked most of the rest of the morning…expect for when I did have to throw on the boots to shovel snow twice.

Decide to dominate!
