Another solid workout day. At 5pm I went to the pool and busted out 2000 meters - in an hours time. I took it nice and slow and worked on form the entire time. After that I hit Subway, grabbed a turkey footlong and ate it in traffic. Got home, checked my work email and then had a long talk with myself about going on a run.
It was 35 degrees and was spitting sleet. I really did not want to run in that weather but I decided to suck it up and go. Ended up doing 6.01 miles in 55 minutes. Good run.
Three days into this week and I have done three double workouts. Actually I have done double days on 4 of the last 5 days. My body is still feeling pretty good and the legs are feeling fresh. With the Austin 1/2 coming up on Sunday I was thinking about doing a little taper but on the run today I decided to screw that and just keep going. Taper, schmaper.
My parents were supposed to fly into Houston tomorrow from Pittsburgh and were going to spend the next 5 days with Annie and me. My mother was going to walk the half and we were going to meet up with my cousins and have a mini-family reunion. Well, thanks to the recent bout of indisputable evidence of global warming in the North East all flights have been canceled and airports closed. The earliest they would be able to get out of PIT would be on Monday. That sucks because Annie and I were really looking forward to seeing them and we feel bad for my mom because she had been training and now has to miss the race.
Tomorrow is going to be hard to get my work in. I have a CE course from 6-9 tomorrow night and am book up all day long long. I might have to move some things around and do more on Friday!
