Will be in and out in a kind of spotty way for the next week. It looks kind of like this:<br><br>
Monday - Run EZPZ just enough to push the monthly PR <b>9 km</b><br>
Tuesday - Ran a little New Year's 8K. <b>8km</b><br>
Wednesday - Run EZPZ for exactly as long as I feel like it. Unless I don't.<br>
Thursday - Ski Face Off<br>
Friday - Ditto<br>
Saturday - Ditto<br>
Sunday - <b>18km XC</b><br><br><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Aaack! Forgot to update! I did go back and fill in last week... but to summarize it was 35.5 miles running, about 35 minutes of weight work and ab/core stuff.<br>
This week...<br>
Monday: 5.07 non-frosty miles on the shiny new treadmill in the basement<br>
Tuesday: 13.6 miles on the stationary bike, 50 minutes...<br>
Wednesday: 8.59 miles on TM, fiddling with different features/buttons<br>
Thursday: 5.14 miles on TM, progressive run from 9:14 m/m to 8:20 m/m<br>
Friday: SRD, but first day of VRAA... so might do something...! (nope)<br>
Saturday: 8 miles on TM, miles 2-7 at or above MP<br>
Sunday: 19 miles, combo of outdoors (16.4) and TM (2.6), also half mile of walking on the TM.<br><br>
Total running 45.8, stationary bike 13.6, walking at least a couple miles...<br><br>
Since I didn't get the long run I wanted today, I might try again next week. Would really like to have an 18 miler done before Carlsbad, and I really don't need much taper... New treadmill in the basement beckons!!

BRRRRRRRR, no Polar Bear Swim here, besides we have one annually Super Bowl Sunday to benefit the Make A Wish foundation. If I was gonna plunge it would be then. I usually just make a donation though and watch <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I was wondering if anyone would notice that huge mileage jump, and the x-training cut back was not meant to be that HUGE either, but went Geocaching both days this weekend. I will NOT run today even though I want to.<br><br>
Monday=30 min stairmill 1 hour weights and abs<br>
Tuesday=3,15 run 10 min weights<br>
Wednesday=elliptical 30 min walkin 1 mile<br>
