I ran 45 miles over the last five days of the week. I took the last four days of 2012 off of running. Four consecutive days off of running! That's huge for me! If that doesn't tell you how sick I was, well, you don't know me. I did do an 8x400 workout on Friday averaging about 71.5 with 1.5-2 minutes jog rest between intervals. Through all the intervals I followed the athletes I coach around the track as they walloped on my coughing and hacking self.
I worked three days this week. Pretty standard. Actually, we were a little light on work, that is, no one was breathing down our throats this week. A good week, I enjoy the short weeks. I have a good job, I enjoy working.
The highlight of the week, besides sleeping and napping a lot, was ice climbing Saturday afternoon. In Iowa, we climb a silo. About 70 vertical feet of ice. Three routes are open so far. I will definitely go again.
