50K Training Plan
I can't say that this was the best week ever, but it was a pretty awesome week. It was an pretty freaking perfect way to start the year. Almost. From the start of the week to the end, my running emotional state for the most part has been happy, positive and stoked for what my running future holds.
Monday - Rest After the past week off of work, I had to sadly go back. It was only for 2.5 hours, but it was work. I had quite the experience at my New Years Eve dinner after. FYI- I take my NYE very seriously. The restaurant kinda screwed up, even though they know me by name. I was a little disappointed but an $80 dinner or so was free, so not complaining.
Tuesday - 4 Scheduled - 3.1 completed Today was a New Years Day 5K. Please read about it here if you have not. It was pretty cold, but awesome.

Thursday - 4 Scheduled - 4 completed I really, really didn't want to run at my clubhouse treddy. Its not the best treddy and I had a feeling that someone was going to be on it. New Years Resolutioners and all. So I ventured out of my house and to the BSU rec. I pounded out 4 miles on the treddy while watching Reno 911. That show is so funny.
Friday - Rest Thankfully a rest day. I just got my 1st iphone. I'm all sorts of fancy now. I sadly had to upgrade my Blackberry Torch. I had to spend my time today buying accessories and downloading apps. Are there any apps you think I have to have?
Saturday - 10 Scheduled - 10 completed I felt awesome during the first 7 miles of this run. But after that, I mentally fell apart. But I finished at basically the same pace I was hoping for so all is ok. My goal is to get to a point where this run is comfortably mentally and physically multiple times a week before I have to go to work.

MelRunsTheWorld has this obsession with the stairmill. I decided to give it a go. I have been a member of the BSU rec center for over 5 years and I have used the stair stepper once. Never the stair mill.
I did 100 floors in 28 minutes. Let's say I think my sweatfest may have scared off the girl on the treadmill next to me.
I was hella sweaty.
How was your workouts this week? Have you ever been on the Death Machine AKA Stepmill? Are you watching Biggest Loser?
