PM: 18 miles on the treadmill in 2:10

First hour was fairly easy. I ran 8:30 pace for a while until my legs came around and did 9.0 from 50 minutes to the 2-hour mark (70 minutes total) after resetting the treadmill.

Officially my longest distance (but not time) on a treadmill. I hope I get some breaks in the weather because running for three to three and half hours on the treadmill will take some concentration.

Off. Worked early and went home for a long nap. Woke up testy and didn't feel like driving back to the gym.

PM: Treadmill - 9 miles. Pulled workout.

Woke up with a sore throat and cold.

Got through 5 miles of warmup. Got through 3 miles of a 60-minute tempo and could feel things going south and finished 4 miles. Did 35 minutes on the StairMaster.

Feel lousy. Didn't get much sleep and none of it quality. Took a nap after work and decided running wasn't going to help. I usually just run, but I don't think you gain much.

Training is already looking too inconsistent for what I wanted to do for my first ultra (33.5 miles) in April. I think I'll do what I can and see what happens. I know I can complete the distance but of course that's not the only goal.

PM: 4.5 miles easy

The park is closed so outside running likely won't happen unless I drive somewhere. Blah. Nice to get some air. Still feeling sick but better.
