Get Fit - Stay Fit: Cross train at the gym

Things have been going well over the past couple of weeks as I've fine tuned the cross training workout that has been taking over my training plan focus. If there is one thing that I have seen, it is an increase in my energy level. I've also been able to keep up my level of fitness even after taking off a few days. This is becoming something I really enjoy and the benefits are there.

I am curious to see how this will impact my racing. I am not doing any speed work, nor am I really running outdoors. The treadmill has been my tool of choice over the past few weeks because of the weather. I'm thinking my 5k time could be as low as 19:00 which would be great seeing as my speed work is non-existent.

I think I'll pick out a race to do in April to get a gauge of where I stand. Until then I will keep up with this cross training to see if I can squeeze out a little more speed without doing too much true speed work!
