Not a Morning Person

Well, after day 2 of AM running failure - I've decided that I'm NOT a morning person when it comes to workouts on a daily basis. So I'm just going to have to suck it up and run during my lunch hour and after work, even if it means living in treadmill hell 4-5 times a week with two-a-day runs here and there. The only exception to this is on the weekend for my long runs. Guess that my body and brain find the long run has more purpose and is the real meat-n-potatoes of it all.

But in any case, today's run was a good one. Progressive treadmill run at a 2% incline. Started at a 4.0 MPH (15 min/mile pace) and gradually increased the speed, finishing at 6.0 MPH (10 min/mile pace). So 38 minutes of running with a 90 second cooldown, I covered 3.30 miles (3.1 of those in 37 minutes). Hopefully tonight's run will be just as fruitful.

Jon - thanks for your posts! Man, I'm looking at your goals for 2008 and really admiring your dedication. Looks like you've been getting in some serious training with your job change. I don't know if anyone is a 2 a.m. morning person! 4 a.m. is about my earliest. So, like, you know, don't beat yourself up over not being able to get up that early! :) That's great that you can run during lunch though.

I'm adding you to my favorites because I keep forgetting to stop by your "new" blog!

BTW - will you send me your email address? nb2v at hotmail dot com

I'm sending out an NB2V update and I don't have your contact info.
