NOT AGAIN!

Does this sound familiar? It is 6 am and I receive a text message from Snips. We needed to do our last long run before Indy. Taking a look at the radar you can see why we AGAIN headed for the treadmill for 2 hours. Flipper decided to join us for our workout. We grabbed 3 treadmills in the back corner of the gym and away we went. The time went much quicker than you would think. Congrats to Flipper who did her longest run ever and on the treadmill.

Perpetuem was my nutrition drink for the day. I wanted to try it out while I had a bathroom near by. I liked the orange flavor. No problems in the 2 hour mixture.

If you don't count the weather, training is going good. Week 2 is completed and 7 hours were logged. Still feeling good, motviated, and no injury. This week I will back it off because of the half on Saturday.

Waddling while complaining about the weather (again).......

Smart move to try that new drink near a bathroom. Glad it worked well for you. Hope that weather where you are finally lets up and lets you get outside!!

After a long long winter...this is not what the doppler should be showing.

I think you get bonus points for doing your long stuff indoors like that.

I'm pretty much experiencing the same weather problems here, although I did get my run in before the rain started again.

We too have been plagued with icky weather all season long! Mostly high gusty winds!! I'm just hoping it's making me stronger and stronger!!

Man, you guys can not catch a break. Way to go on keeping at it even when the training is hard. That is why you will be IRON!

Good luck with your race this weekend. Run strong!

You have a right to complain! Best of luck this weekend at the mini Indy! You are going to PR-I can feel it!

You cannot catch a break!

But again, you have shown your merit with another ironwill run on the treadmill!!

You are my hero.

I use perpetuem too. The flavor is much better than 'substained energy'.

I had every intention of doing a 6 mile run along Lake Shore but between the rain and the wind in the forecast I only got in 4! I hope you're able to fit in some training between storms!
