If Bungee's recent energy levels are any indication, she's definitely going to suffer this week. I took her into New Haven for a meeting yesterday and there was another dog in the office. They went NUTS playing together. I am happy Bungee got some good socialization time, but she also looked completely insane running around the office space.
|Sort of like this, without the car.|
Yesterday, we got a little bit of snow. The roads were a little rough for speed work, so it looks like I will only have one outdoor run this week. My training called for a 10k at 10k pace and since I had no idea what that pace should be, I checked out Galloway's Magic Mile predictor. I'm not sure I like Jeff Galloway anymore since that meant I had to run 10k at 7:41 min/mile. I cheated a little bit and warmed up for a quarter mile at a 10 min mile pace, but then counted it towards the 10k. My legs were not feeling speedy, but I got it done.
After all of this training, Alyssa and I are seriously contemplating some payback for her friend who designed the program. I'm not sure what we'll do yet, but the punishment needs to fit the crime. Then again, if we PR like crazy, maybe we'll restrain ourselves from too much retribution.
What's the worst weather you've run in? Last winter I ran in 7 degree temps, but there was no wind and sun.
