PM - between nine and 10 miles after a drive from Florida to Atlanta this afternoon.  I heard on the news after I arrived that they're expecting some winter weather again this week. Hope they are better prepared this time.

AM - 5 miles easy this morning before work in ATL.

PM - 8 miles on the hotel treadmill after work. Kept the effort at a moderate aerobic level -- heart rate reserve at 70% - which this week had me at 7:24 pace which is an improvement of approximately 15 seconds from last week at the same effort and distance.  Things are progressing nicely.

AM - 4 miles easy to moderate.  Rain and potential for a "wintery mix" had me running on the indoor track of the club next to my hotel this morning.  Unintentionally probably allowed myself to run a little faster than I had planned.  

PM - 12 miles on the treadmill in the hotel after work at an easy aerobic pace.

AM - 5 miles easy on the indoor track in the gym next to my hotel.  Weather was not pleasant outside.  Sleet, windy, freezing rain...Had a nice run indoors though. Only 3 people in the entire club, and no one else on the track.  

PM - 10 miles at a moderate aerobic pace on the hotel treadmill.

AM - 6 miles on the hotel treadmill this morning.  Office closed again today with the snow.  Hoping my flight is not cancelled this afternoon.  (I am out of clean running clothes.)

 

PM - 7 miles back home.  Really  not a very good run.  Too worn out from the travel, or just too old.

AM - 3 miles easy before work this morning.

PM - tempo - MP run on the treadmill at lunch 6 miles.  Felt ok but HR was higher than it should have been or was last week on the same workout.  Actually I did not check the HR until the last half mile after the first mile or 2 were in the proper zone.  Not sure if there was a problem with the monitor or with my HR.  Anyway, felt as though it was a good workout either way.
