It has been pouring rain all night so getting up at 4:30 and running in the rain was not on the agenda today.  Plus, I wanted to do a tempo run and I felt it would be tough in the rain.  After my 7AM class I went to the gym and did my tempo run on a TM.  

1 mile warmup.

6 miles at 7min/mile pace.

1 mile cooldown.  

Total run took about an hour.  My legs felt a little tired today but I pushed through the run and was happy I did it.

Today was my speed workout day.  I had a test at 8 and literature review at 7 so I had to get up at 4:30 to get it done.  To get this marathon done with a BQ time I think I will have a lot of early mornings.  My legs felt good this morning.  I basically did the uphills as my recovery and my downhills as my speedwork with a pace between 6-6:30.  I think I did about 3.5 miles of speed and 2.5 of recovery.  

AP:  7:20 for the run

It was the coldest morning I have experienced in a while.  The temperature was about 30 degrees but the wind child was about 25.  I rained yesterday (again) so there were a few icy places, but nothing too bad.  I extened my downhill and uphill by a half mile each to add on another mile.  I am developing a plan in my mind that will allow me to get a lot of good downhill running mixed with slow uphill running.  I'm hoping this will prepare me for Mt. Charleston.  The legs felt really good this morning.  Even though it was cold, it still felt good to be out and feel the cold wind against my face!

Followed the run with a little core workout.
