Judging by the speed of my last 4 marathons, it is definitely time for me to concentrate on picking up the pace. I realize the last 4 came with significant challenges, extreme heat in the Bahamas, extreme wind in Chile, and a long list of inconveniences there in Antarctica. But I am getting tired of always bringing up the rear. It's easy to just blame it on my age, but I think I can place more of the blame on my own laziness than on just my age.
So today I hit the treadmill hard, pushed my speed, and got in a good solid 5 miles. Increasing my speed is going to be my focus this month as I train indoors on the treadmill. Not much chance of running outdoors around here this month. I'm just lucky to be able to get to work 1/2 mile in the car. -20 now and of course the usual wind. Deep snow where it hasn't blown away leaving something that would make a great ice skating rink in its wake! Yes, in times like these, I appreciate the treadmill.
