I know spring has sprung because of all the talk about basketball and baseball. While everyone else, well - maybe not everyone, is talking about last night's NCAA Championship game and the beginning of baseball season I am spending my time perusing the Packers Pro Shop because the Draft Day 2010 line has come out! This means only one thing: we're one more month closer to football season.
isn't it awesome?
Other than my football season countdown coming close to draft day as a sure sign of spring, the weather has been giving us hints too. It was absolutely beautiful this weekend and yet I didn't manage to get a run in. I'm still trying to figure out when to go running on the weekends now that I'm working on Saturday mornings. Do I get up really early and go? Or, do I bump my so-called long runs to Sunday? I can't go Saturday afternoon (this weekend I could, but soon Saturdays will be filled with the kids' soccer and baseball games).

Since I skipped my weekend run, I added a little on to my run Monday morning. I really liked my run last week when I did 1 mi slow, 1 mi fast so I did it again and added on .25 even faster at the end. I really liked it and can't wait to do it again next week! The problem was that i didn't look closely at my schedule for the week because I had .25 mi repeats planned for this morning. I did them, but my legs were tired and half filled with lead. I made it through five repeats and then called it quits without a good cool-down.
The rest of week:
Monday: 6 miles (done - 6.69 mi)
Tuesday: 5 x 400s (done - 3.0 mi)
Thursday: 6 miles
Friday: 7 miles … maybe a split day
Sunday: 6 miles
Now for a question: ADP is on the taller side and needs some running gear for next fall. Any suggestions as to where to get a pair of running tights and a long sleeve shirt for my tall running guy?
