6 TM miles this morning. 

1X60 Planks, Bicycles, Toe Touches. 25 pushups. 3X10 curls & PT-style squats.

Just now signed up for my first trail run - the Bighorn 50K. Also booked a camp site at Dead Swede, which is at the top of the mountain. Really looking forward to this. A friend has done the 30K the past two years and says it's a great event.

6 TM miles this afternoon. I really don't mind the treadmill anymore, but I'm sure that will end. When it's butt cold out I'm okay getting on there. I'm also worried about getting sick as it's happened quite a bit in the past 12 months after a long cold run.

My adductor (groin) muscle is getting worse and worse. After I warm up it's fine but it's taking longer and longer to warm up before I don't feel the twinge. Should probably go see a PT for some more help.

After warming up did a 6.7, then a 7.1, then 7.6, then 8.1, then 8.6, then bumped up and up until the end. I love doing that. I ran for 0.10 of a mile at 5:00 per mile pace. I CANNOT believe that people can run that fast for a mile, let alone an entire marathon. How cool.

6 TM miles very early at the Y. Haven't woken up this early to run since the marathon, but got in my run then headed back home to swap cars & get everyone off to school after shoveling my walk & a family I home teach. I normally forget about them but I'm doing a much better job. He's sick and may not make it to spring so I better serve while I can! He and his wife are awesome.

First 4 miles at 6.7 & 2%, then 7.1 for next mile, and bumped up every half mile and sprinted at 10.0 for last 0.10. Ran next to a woman I've seen at the Y before and she's getting ready for the New Orleans marathon in 7 weeks. I'm so jealous. Need to find me a money tree.

6 TM miles this morning. Kept it slow and steady the whole time as it's Friday and I'm a bit tired. I am way less tired than last week, though, in which I did a Boot Camp session, so that's interesting. After warming up for 1/2 mile ran the rest at 6.7 and 2% incline. Felt good. Was hungry at about 2 miles but kept going and energy returned.

1X60 plank, 25 pushups. After showering I was getting dressed and was literally the only person in the locker room. Another guy came in and used the locker 3 away from me. What in the world? He must use that same locker every day, but dude - it's a locker room. Move.

10 TM miles this morning at the Y. Did the first 4 on a mill with no fan - the fuse was blown so wouldn't turn on. At 4 I went to a newly vacated one in the prized spot - right next to a fan, and my favorite mill. The next 6 went very well. Did most of the miles at a gentle 6.8 with 2% incline, and finished the last couple at 7.0 with 1% incline. The MP3 player died with 3 miles to go but thankfully with the new large TVs it's easy to read the closed captioning. I saw the plays of the week twice on SportsCenter and learned how to tell if people are lying based on their facial expressions. Bill Clinton, not lying at the '92 DNC, lying about "that woman". Susan Smith, lying about her children, Marion Jones lying about doping. Very interesting stuff.

In other news, it's warmed up significantly in Billings. We hit 42 (jumped from 11 at 7 am to 31 at 8 am. That's nice! Maybe the roads will clear off soon and I can run outside shortly, but no TM madness yet. Ran 42 or so miles this week, all in the mornings at the Y. Kinda liked it.
