This morning I woke up at 5:30 to go for an easy morning run. I made it about 10 ft and saw that the temperature was only 14 degrees. Then I went back to bed for another 30 minutes. This time when I looked at the temperature it was 12 degrees. I decided no to run in the morning.
I ran 5.5 miles this afternoon and then another 4 miles TT after dinner. This was my first run on the treadmills at WC and I was not very impressed. I am basically a treadmill snob, but really I just can't deal with noisy treadmills. Its not so much that it bothers me as much as I know it bothers other people in the gym. I tried 3 of the 4 treadmills and they were all loud. Tomorrow morning I'll try the 4th treadmill. Hopefully I'll get lucky with that one. I'm going to bring my headphones too, just in case.
Work/class is going pretty well. I thought I would be much busier, but really it hasn't been too bad. I mean, I have like no free time, but at least I'm not very stressed out thoughout the day.
Tomorrow is my first speed day in like forever (400s). Should be interesting.

I agree... can we all borrow "TT" when its appropriate? :)
Hey, I wanted to say congrats on making it through your six weeks of initial base training. It has been rather fun to follow along and see how you progress every week. I have to admit there were a few weeks when I wondered how it was going to turn out, but you pulled every week off. Nice!
