2010 Chicago Training – Week 9

I’m a little behind in updating the blog for week 9 but I figure late is better than never.

The summer is dragging on and at this point it just keeps getting hotter.  (Notice a pattern here.)  In fact, I finally gave in and did my first long run on the treadmill this week.  It came down to this question, do I kill myself with a heat index of 116 or a slow death by boardom on the treadmill.  I chose the treadmill.

Here is the daily damage report….

Sunday: rest day

Monday: 5 miles

Tuesday: 12 miles on the treadmill at the Y

Wednesday: rest day

Thursday: 11 miles

Friday: 5 miles

Saturday: 20 miles – It was 65 degrees when I started at 4 am.  It was worth getting up early.  Was still slow but my time was 15 minutes faster that two weeks ago.  There is still hope for the Fall.

Total for the week: 53 miles
