A Simple Running Log

Training for 1/18/13

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 4:32 pm

Last night, since I hadn’t run yesterday, Clark decided to put me through a short but effective upper-body workout he recently found in his Abs Diet book. (Funny how we’ve had that book for more than seven years, and we’re still finding new stuff in it.) It took less than 20 minutes to finish, but I could definitely feel it in my arms and back.

This morning, I woke up to two things outside that made me happy — sunshine for the first time in a week, and barely a dusting of snow! Several people on Facebook were disappointed we didn’t get the 4 to 6 inches they were predicting at times, but not me. I wouldn’t mind if I never saw snow again.

After breakfast, Pepper and I bundled up and headed out to the trail for a short, easy run.

It was a great day for a run on the trail. There was a little snow on the ground, but not much, so we could still very easily see the trail. We did the 3-mile loop, and then did another little loop, bringing the day’s total to probably four miles or so.

When we got home, I gave Pepper a treat, and then I did today’s push-ups workout and some stretching.

The weather this weekend is supposed to be decent. No chance of rain, plenty of sun and not terribly cold, but it’s supposed to be on the windy side both days. I have 9.5 miles at goal marathon pace planned for tomorrow, and a 19-mile long run Sunday.

Sunday night is the Ravens’ game against the Patriots. Stupid Sports Illustrated put Joe Flacco on the cover this week, so if the Ravens lose, I’m blaming it on the magazine and its stupid cover curse. We’re watching the game at Dave and Kasey’s house again. I’m making chili this time.



  1. Remember if they lose, you have to credit the quilt 🙂 If they win, then your sweatshirt gets credit 😉

    • The SI cover curse plus a lucky quilt? I don’t know if my sweatshirt can overpower it 🙂
