PM treadmill at the gym: 10mi. easy - 1:20:00.  Its cold and icy around here still.  Been a tough winter for the Midwest (and everywhere else it looks like, too).  With all the planned mileage coming up and an overabundance of treadmill running, I decided to bust out the plethera of old Brooks trainer-type shoes sitting out in the garage and save some of the newer shoes for the warmer road running days to come.

Needed the am off to recover freom yesterday.  Pretty sore up through about lunch time today.

PM Treadmill at the gym: WU 1.5mi. w/ strides, 8x1mi. LT - 10.1mph (5:56/mi.) with 0.25 mile slow jog recovery.  I had some serious GI problems after about rep 5 - my apologies to the guy on the TM next to me.  I finished the workout just in time. 

Pretty pleased w/ completing this - 8 mile repeats is a PR on the number of reps.  The last couple got alittle labored for the last half mile of each, but I think that was due to the GI thing.  This pace felt like it could be manageable for 10mi.-half, which is what I think the idea was.  This is the first workout of a very structured specific marathon training plan - my first!  I'm excited about having a sudo-coach/trainer! :)

Today's PM workout went well on TM at gym - 3x3mi. 90-95% MP with moderate 0.5mi. recoveries.  Felt comfortable after 1mi.  WU at 9mph(6:40s) for the first 3mi. rep. and 7.8mph for 0.5mi. rec. and then repeated same paces.  Felt pretty even effort through the all. (The first one actually felt the hardest...)

11mi. total - 1:16:10

AM: group long run in Columbus on mostly clear paved trail - essentially an out and back from the gym.  Nathan, Danny, and Cole for the whole way, Chasity, her sis for a bit, and Kirk, Erin and Sarah for about 10miles.  The guys ran 10x3:00 MP w/ 2:00 rec. in the second half of the run.  on the slush and with the intersections corssing our path, the splits were pretty uneven: about 6:25/mi. avg. pace, though.  A few Quaff beers afterward - Busted Knuckle on tap at The Garage, now!

19.52 mi. total - 2:28:12
