Time 280 min
Running 13.4 miles
Core Fitness 120 min
Weights 20 min

  • mon: TM miles. Ran 3.0 miles. As usual by the time I had a chance to run today it was dark, so I jumped on the treadmill for a few miles while I watched TV. I kept it easy and just kept my HR in the right zone for the run.
  • wed: Quick upper body workout. Lifted for 20 minutes . Not much to say, just hit the usual upper body muscles.
  • wed: TM miles. Ran 2.0 miles. I had very little time today, but I managed to get a quick 2 miles in on the dread mill.
  • fri: Pillings Pond Run. Ran 5.2 miles. I managed to get this in right before the blizzard hit. The roads were empty and I didn’t see a soul. kept the run very easy and focused on my form and breathing.
  • sat: Snow blowing and shoveling. Exercised for 120 minutes . I had hoped to get in a workout, but hours of clearing snow left me exhausted. I feel it was an excellent workout based on the number of muscles that hurt and the amount of exhaustion I feel.
  • sun: Heart rate training. Ran 3.2 miles. Slow run to keep the HR down. Average was 131 BPM and the max I reached was 139. The number I was shooting for was 133 so I am happy with that. I will be doing exclusively this type of running for the next 3 months or so. If you are interested in HR training I put up a blog post here: http://overthehill.me/2013/02/10/run-slower-to-run-faster/
