Greetings from Minnesota!
I didn’t give a running tales update yesterday, so when I saw that Kier @ Life and Running In Iowa had posted a Training Tuesday questionnaire, I decided I should hop on the bandwagon.
What event are you training for? Earth Day 1/2 Marathon OR Earth Day 20 Mile followed by Fargo Marathon (By next week I have told myself I will make a decision for sure about this!)
Date of event? Earth Day Races – April 16, Fargo – May 21
What does your training schedule look like this week? Well, my schedule is usually an approximation, but here’s what I’m thinking. Monday – easy weights/core (I’m still babying my neck, shoulders and back, so that’s why I say easy), Tuesday – 4 miles, Wednesday – probably rest or core work and stretching Thursday – 3-4 miles speed work, Friday – rest, Saturday – 8-9 miles, Sunday – short recovery run?
What is the temperature where you are right now? 15? (Way better than below zero :D)
And how cold is too cold to workout outdoors? Depends on the wind. I did a 5k and another few miles outside when it was -10 on Saturday, and it was ok because there was no wind. The next day the temps were warmer but it was a freezing wind which I don’t think I could have run in. I guess maybe -20 (with no wind) is the coldest I have ever run outside.
Does your significant other ever workout with you? Not usually, unless you count farm work. We sometimes bike together in summer, but I’m so much slower than him it’s almost comical. (Poor J!)
What other events are on your list of must dos for 2011? No specific events, but I need to do a 10K sometime this year to fix my pathetic PR. I’ve only done one 10K race, and it was last July in about 90% humidity. I need to redeem myself! I’m sure I’ll also do some 5Ks when I can, and I definitely plan to set a new 5K PR in 2011.
Now answer these questions yourself, and link up on Kier’s blog. (thanks Kier!)
