I'm looking for 35F next week

I made it through another day of deep freeze boy oh boy I'm looking forward to those 35F next week. I'm updating tonight because I need to, because I'm failing yet another week because I'm hoping posting will keep me on track.

onward to the sixth week:
Monday-Rest or CX Actual- Rested
Tuesday-6mi AM 4mi pm: Actual 8mi AM @
Wednesday-11mi w/5X1200m: Actual 7.41mi AM/ 5.31 Mi pm
5k race pace jog 2 1/2 min between
Thursday-15mi MLR :Actual 8.18miles
Friday-10mi: Actual: 8.30miles
Saturday-6mi rec: Actual 8.03
Sunday: 16m w/12mi mp : Actual 12.44miles

Tuesday it was -11f when I went out was not able to do pm run came home cook for the boys then went to freshman parents orientation, Kelly will be in high school in the fall!!! I like the way this sound I'll have two freshman in the fall

Today it was 0F warmer than yesterday!!! took me forever to get out the door. I dressed in layers this morning and could barely move out there. Tonight I went to
the track thought for sure I would get my 1200's in, the track was covered with ice. we ran around the school's parking lot I averaged about 9:12 to 9:28 so I'm not too,too sad at least I was at a faster pace than what I'm usually at. Right now I'm thinking there is no way I'll get 15 miles in on Thursday!!! I'm praying that mind over matter will payoff.

-11F ... what's that -24C! That's way below my threshold. When it's that cold, you could spend some time on the treadmill.

Hope it warms up a little very soon. It hit 81F in Phoenix yesterday.

I find that blogging helps me keep track nicely -- those are fast times way to go! stay warm! :)

Nice job! It's been awful and windy 'round these part. But it still feels all right to get out there!

You're a better woman than me - these temps have had me hugging the treadmill...

Down here in Houston I think we are about 10 below at the moment (10 below 60 degrees that is). The only ice I ever see is in my freezer, and my hat is off to you for getting out there and braving the elements. Of course, come May when we have heat indexes about 90 for 6 straight months before the sun even comes up, I'll wish I was where you are. If you get a chance, please visit my running web site, Faithful Soles. I have a categorized and searchable Running Blog Database on there and would appreciate it if you would link your blog to it. I also have my own blog, but most of my information is on the main web site. Thanks and continued good luck in your training.

Below zero is crazy! Don't feel bad, just make it another day.
Good you made it to a track, and yes, posting workouts usually keeps me honest too.
