Well I got my new TomTom GPS Runner watch this afternoon, played around with it for a while and was impressed with how it looks and how easy it is to use. There are a few things I am not crazy about in my first hours, but overall it is doing everything that I want so far.
Now to just get it working with the RunningAhead website and I will be very happy. More on my experiences with it a little later this week. I was just a little excited to get going on the run and forgot to bring my phone, so I didn’t get photos during the run.
Today was a planned recovery 7.0 mile recovery run and I decided to run the snowmobile trails down to Tiffany and then come back up through downback. Which meant that I was running on snow-covered snowmobile trails for over 4.0 miles – which meant that the footing was pretty tough and my told me all about it after I was done – wondering what the hell we were doing this for a recovery run.

I have worked on a post that has taken up most of my time the past couple of days and I got so involved with it that I forgot to do my RunLog post yesterday.
My McMillan 1/2 marathon plan called for a 60-70 minute Steady State run. Due to the temps (yes, even I am tired of single digits, with subzero wind chills), I decided to use the treadmill at Champions. Which also allows me to control the pace I am running much more closely.
I set the speed to 7.5 mph and ran 4.0 miles, then I bumped it up to 7.6 mph and ran 4.01 more miles.
I didn’t have any problems running this distance or pace, which means that I am getting in shape and that following, well at least attempting to follow (working around weather and life), the McMillan plan, which is working for me.
This was just one of those runs you get on the treadmill, put on your headphones and do the work.
Not a bad run, but nothing special either, to be honest this is what most of my runs should be like – do the work, meet the daily plan objectives and get ready for the next day.
Looking at Down back
How is it down back – well when Bennie and I walked it yesterday morning, it has turned into a snowmobile trail for the Steven’s Hill part
As you can see someone plowed this heavy stuff from Tiffany to Blake Roads and from what I could see, they had more than a couple of issues getting through.
