Hmmm, what to do. We need our 'scheduled' faster paced run in for the week (that's about as structured as we get). So, being the 'bad', not-so-tough-as nails duo that we are, we changed from running attire to BIKING
attire. We decided not to run in the cold but ride instead. Yes, RIDE. While it was gale force windy out. While it was 'we're not ready for the cold' cold out. Yes, we rode. Indoors. On the trainers. In a warm, cozy house (with some artificial wind - a fan blowing on us - to make us think we were really outside, sort of). Threw in a Carmichael Training video - Climbing Speed - and proceeded to sweat profusely by doing repeats of Over and Under climbing threshold intervals. It was all good. We got a great workout in despite missing our tempo day. Tomorrow we are hoping to redeem ourselves with a LONG run....
The cardinal rule in the HT household has been "No Christmas music until December 1". I (Kathleen - and yes, I finally did a post) am bad all the way around lately - no run today AND starting Christmas music overload way early. Oh yeah, adding to my string of badness - I just made a batch of gluten free butter cookies with Nutella sandwiched in between. We are hoping to post a Christmas playlist with some of our faves but have had trouble getting a full list to download. So here's one good song to start you off.
