1. Yesterday, I ran for two hours and eleven minutes on the treadmill.
While it wasn't all mind-numbingly terrible (I watched three exciting episodes of Alias), it was bad enough to make me dread this weekend's 18 miler and even my easy 6 miles either today or tomorrow. I still can't decide what is worse, though, freezing weather or the treadmill. I'll probably stick with the treadmill, though, just so I don't have to spend the hours following my run trying unsuccessfully to warm back up.
2. Bungee's exercise is taking a hit, obviously, so I got the cold shoulder from her yesterday. Today, I'm contemplating making her run wind sprints in the the basement OR seeing if I can teach her to walk on the treadmill without just sitting down and flying off the back (like she usually does). Either way, I promise there will be video.
3. I've decided to go back to the chiropractor today. I feel fine, and haven't had any real pains this training cycle. I think the two rest days on top of the fact that I'm actually following a training plan really help with that. At the same time, I'm getting into the toughest part of the training, so it's better to be prepared. Also, I really like going to the chiropractor if only to get my back adjusted.
I can either run 6 miles today and take tomorrow off before Saturday's 18 miler or take today off and run 6 on Friday. What would you do?
