Bike 5 miles (commute)
Run 10 miles
Lift 12 lifts
-3 sets of 12 reps.
Even with the day off yesterday I still felt really tired out this morning. I ran 5 miles before work though and did feel a little better by the end of that run. After work I decided I wanted to try to reintroduce my body to a little bit of speed/tempo running. After a mile warm up I ran a 6:00 mile followed by an 8:00 recovery mile and then a 5:40 mile and then a short cool down. Nothing too long or fast but just a nice chance to see what it's like to go fast again for a bit. This is the first time I have pushed any speed through my legs in over 2 months. My body responded pretty well. the 5:40 mile actually felt a lot better than the 6:00 mile: I think I just wasn't really all that warmed up until after the first interval. Got in some good lifting after the run and I feel a lot better tonight than I did when I got up this morning. My back is still a bit sore today but I'm hoping my upcoming vacation will help with that.
I leave tomorrow for 11 days in Utah. I'm really looking forward to some sun and warmth... kind of too bad that the forecast is for cold, windy, rain for the next 4 or 5 days down there. bummer. and it's supposed to be sunny for at least a day or two here in Juneau. The thing is that a cold rainy day in Utah would be considered a warm dry day here in Juneau so I'm guessing even the storms that are moving through the desert in the next several days are going to seem like pleasant weather to me.
