This Weather Is Making Me A Weak Boy!
The weather this week made me a weak boy. Wind chills in the mid 30's, with sustained winds in the mid 30's as well. I tried to get a few good workouts in, but it was an absolute struggle. Next week does not look substantially better. Usually December is a good training month for me, but not turning out that way this year.....
On Tuesday I ran 10K with a 16 minute and 12 minute pair of cruise intervals with a 3 minute recovery in between. Pace was not spectacular in the wind, and the cold and pollen made me wheezy. Wednesday was an easy 8K. Thursday was also an 8K with a single tempo interval of 22 minutes. Saturday was horrid weather beyond belief. I covered 9K, with the last 2K fast at around 10K pace. Today was also shit weather, and I struggled thru 8K slowly. Looking forward to a gym day tomorrow, and then it looks like another cold week. Hopefully, the wind will cooperate a bit more next week!
