13 x 400 tonight, started in a decent night and by the time I finished, a snow squall had moved in. Each 400 was between 78-80 seconds with equal rest (active recovery over 200m jog), felt difficult towards the end, but was a good effort.

kind of a scatterbrained effort tonight..intention was to hit 4-5miles tempo, but was having a tough time breathing for some reason - may be coming down with a cold, ended up just trying to maintain a good effort/marathon pace - 6:09, short break then 6:40, 6:35, 6:26, 6:34 uphill. Those last 4 were consecutive and all well within/under marathon pace. 8.7 total, legs felt really dead tonight overall.

treadmill tonight in the hopes of getting some quality speedwork in and avoiding wind or stomach problems. Still struggling to get solid speedwork completed though (specifically tempos), could be the amt of mileage this month. anyway first 2 miles was 12:19, could have kept going but had a nosebleed occuring, so stopped to take care of that, then did 1.25 in 6:07 pace, but abruptly stopped cuz I was feeling it in my legs, then did 1.25 at GMP during my cooldown. 8.5 total

7 this morning, 7:30 pace, felt pretty avg. 

 

225.8 on the month of January, actually my 2nd best of all time, nice to see, but also cautious given that this is my first full month on this cycle, explains some of the tiredness in my legs lately
