running 1:00:00 [3] 7.0 mi (8:34 / mi)
slept:7.0 weight:130lbs

it came a blizzard and snowed about 24 inches on the AT. the creeper had about a foot of snow-- so the group long run was cancelled. so I was forced to go run on asphalt (BOO!) I really didn't want to totally destroy my legs by running 20 mi on the roads, so I ran 6 miles in my neighborhood with a mile of 10 hill repeats on this very long, steep hill near my house.

long run going to try to reschedule for maybe monday.

running (speedwork on track) 30:00 [4] 1.5 mi (20:00 / mi)
slept:7.0 weight:129lbs

track work out at VA high track. it was 30f no wind. ran a 2 mile warm up, and some stretching and form running drills ( old habits die hard) with a workout of 3x 800m. with 60 seconds rest in between.

the runnning drills I did were as follows:
50 m of high knees
50m of "butt kicks"
50m of skipping
50m of bounding
50m strides
10 hurdles set up for hurdle drills ( walking OVER the hurdles for one drill, then bounding the next) then bounding sideways with one foot then the other over the side of the hurdle )
-- I do these more for my hip flexors and abductors. etc..

800m 1- 3:10
800m 2- 3:06
800m 3- 3:08

it felt like a sold, consistent effort over the 3 800m, but it never felt all out.
I don't know where I got that I only had 3 to run.. i thought that was way too easy of a workout.. after reviewing google docs.. I see that i could of done more.. I was supposed to run for an hour! damn! I will make a better effort to read the workout WAY more carefully.
