PM: 18 miles in 2:32 on the treadmill. HR 157.

75’ @ Marathon Effort 

It snowed bit, so I wasn’t sure about the footing, so I hit the treadmill. Warmed up 4 slow miles with a progression at the end. I knew that the effort would be too high if I tried to mirror the road paces. Started at 8.0MPH to be conservative and worked down to 8.5MPH. It quickly became unsustainable, so I backed it off and dialed it in by heart rate, keeping it at 165 BPM. I almost pulled it at 12’, but refocused knowing I wouldn’t get my miles in otherwise. Ended up pleased to get through it. 

Skipped the scheduled long strides and just plodded out a 4-mile cool down for 18 total miles.

That’s a small mileage PR for the week. About 2-3 miles over one in November.

Night: AIS, PT, and push-ups
