I think I was a bear in my last life, and would just be hibernating at this point.
My knee seems to be better.
I did 12 on the treadmill yesterday, 10 at an 8 min pace, the the last 2 at nine minutes pace. I know what y'all are thinking. That is not "Long Slow Distance", but I just get soooo bored on the treadmill that I can't concentrate for longer than an hour at slower than 8.5 min/mile.
I think this is the period every year where I just don't care about running anymore. The lack of sun, smells, etc... take the juice away from me which get me running.
I took today off, not sure what I will do tomorrow. Probably experiment with tempo pace again to see if the knee holds up.
Even though it is the dead of winter, the first race (50k) is a short 3 months away, hard to believe. I like a big race earlier in the spring.
The plan is to put in a couple of 20 milers if Feb, and do my first training 50k in March.
