Cross Train Weekend
I had hoped to run part of the GAC Fat Ass on Saturday, but still had work left over from Friday and spent the morning working from home. I did get out for a short snowshoe jaunt with kevin along the banks of the Swift River Saturday Afternoon. Sunday was just too cold for me to run. Ten degrees is my cut off. I find if I run when it is colder than that I have a lot of wheezing during the run and end up with a bothersome cough for days afterwards. I did a couple of good indoor workouts instead. I still don't have my treadmill, it's coming tomorrow. I spun on the bike for about an hour keeping my heart rate in the mid 140's, I did my chest and back strength workout, and I did an hour of plyometrics (with an average heart rate of 152!) Plenty of exercise for one day.
Today I went out and ran on snowmobile and mountain bike trails for about 3 hours. I definitely was not feeling my best today. I was just plain beat. But at least I got out there. Tonight will be an early night for me so I can get some quality training in tomorrow.
