Not feeling fast or particularly good, but I'm grinding along, putting in the time. 6-7 miles a day, mostly moderate paces. 40 miles each of the last two weeks and 50-ish this. Pretty much on schedule for an early April marathon if it comes to that. Of course, now Mrs. Dave is asking about something in March.
Although, I decided the legs were ready for a tempo run and did 5 pushing it during Monday's 7. Between a potty stop at the gas station and traffic lights it was almost more an interval workout than a tempo, but I'm calling it anyway. There was a little stretch in Sammy the Hammy, but wasn't too bad. 8:16, 8:19, 7:59, 8:24, 7:55. Works out to 8:11 average, which is actually about where I want to be, although keep in mind that was only 5 miles.
Saturday's long run was a dreadmill torture session. I broke it up into 3-4 sections because it was just too awful. Watched a couple of weird movies on Prime. The first one was called Scorched Earth. Post-apocalyptic bounty hunter thing with guns, explosions and stuff. Then there was Dark Valley, an English-dubbed Swiss film. It was basically a western set in the Alps. Horses, guns, a Clint Eastwood character out for revenge on the bad guys who terrorized the small town. Obviously, I had finished The Man in the High Castle earlier in the week.
This week's weather has been much better. Cold, but the sun is out and the roads are clear, so I've been outside every day.
T-Rex is obsessed with the Masked Singer. It's completely ridiculous, but I am interested in who they have on. And I wonder how in the world the audience votes off Chaka Khan before Gronkowski.
