Back to Back

Funny! How could running two consecutive days be a big deal? However, it is symbolic to me...as I'd been struggling with motivation, injury, and fatigue over the past few months, this shows I am making a come back...albeit very gradual and slow...glacier(al) if you will.
The sun is out but the tenacious cold is hanging on; adding a cold north wind it requires motivation to get out! Oh, how I long for the 50's!!
I did 30:39 minutes of running and 4 hill repeats. I was sucking air as usual...I've been timing the repeats to watch for improvement or decline. This might be a gauge to use in the coming weeks as how to tweak the workout. As for now; two more runs this week @ 30 min with 10 min as hill repeats. Peace! Hey aren't the Olympics awesome!! Since one of my favorite bloggers is Canadian (Marlene)I'm saying congrats on the awesome Gold medal in skating last night!!
