10.0 on the TM. I really wanted to meet up with Allie and the others this morning, but I just couldn't bring myself to run outside when it was about 5 degrees. The LC is closed, so my brother got me into the gym down at the hospital. Pretty good run for me. I was skeptical I would make it 10 miles, but it went by fast.
Lifted for about 25 min.
A quick summary of my 2010 running year. All in all, it was kind of a disappointing one as far as hitting my goal times, but oh well. I think the times will eventually come if I keep putting in the work. I had high aspirations for TOU and actually probably ran the best 18 consecutive miles of my life.....and then the wheels fell off. But I learned a lot. DesNews Marathon was fun for a little while, but I really have no desire to run that race again. But I also learned from that race. I think I let the marathon and the half marathon get the best of me mentally this last year. I think I will switch up my training a bit this coming year and really try to incorporate a bit more speed "stuff" and tempo miles. As of now, I have one marathon on the schedule for 2011 (Boston). If I don't get into St. George, I may not do another marathon during the year. I also am entered in the half marathon at Utah Valley. I will obviously sign up for many other races as the year gets going. Would love to do more 5ks and 10ks to help develop some more speed. I think it will be a good year.......and hopefully I will avoid any injuries unlike the last 2 years where I've missed about 2 good, solid months of running in each year.
