The treadmill has been a good friend

Today it was -5 below on the way to work (I can't wait for the summer). I only worked a 1/2 day because I had to go home and take care of my daughter who stayed home from school because she still has a bad cold. I was able to get her some lunch and get her crafts, etc.. all set up and I was off upstairs to get my workout done.

Today I ran 15 miles on the treadmill. I was pretty tired the last couple of days, but I felt great today. I started really easy at 7:30 pace (8.0 mph) and every mile I picked up the pace by .1 mph. So, after 6 miles I was already at 8.6 mph which is 6:58 pace. I picked it up again every couple of miles until I was running 6:31 mile pace the last couple miles.

Tomorrow calls for double recovery runs and then friday I'll be doing some tempo. I'm pumped my legs felt great today.

Here is another great coldplay song live in Toronto. (Death and all of his friends). I love this album. Wish I could watch them live someday.

You are way too intense for me... and -5 degrees that is just REDICULOUS!
