It is cold in Chicago. Much colder than I thought it would be and the six inches of snow helps solidify the fact that it is freakin' fridgid in this town. Luckily, I planned on running indoors at the hotel so it was easy to lace up the shoes and hop on the treadmill for 45 minutes.
I had a pretty good run. My legs have been stiff and a little sore since the race on Saturday. My work out yesterday also left my upper body a little more sore than I wanted to be. However, after a 5 minute warm up, I was able to put together a little workout with only minor hamstring issues.
I also signed up for the Alpharetta 1/2 Marathon next weekend. Should be a good slow run. The key word is slow. I plan on putting together some solid base miles over the next few weeks and that includes the two 1/2 Marathons this month.
I have been listening to a couple of pod casts that relate to all things regarding running. I am addicted to listening to these pod casts and have gotten some good information from them. I recommend going to iTunes and checking these out. I will post some of my favorites at a later date.
Route: Hotel Treadmill
Time: 45 Minutes
Distance: 5.8 Miles
