I was going to do my workout here in Snoqualmie prior to departing for my business trip to LA but the weather was so cold here I took an earlier flight so I could enjoy the warmth of SoCal. With the help of Google Maps, I was able to quickly find a high school track within a half mile of my hotel in Santa Monica. School was still in session so i had an abnormally long 7-mile warmup before I was able to get on the track. The workout was 3M@5:03-5:05 followed my a one-minute rest then one mile at 4:56. I was 1/2 mile from the beach so the onshore winds were definitely noticeable but I was able to hit each of the three miles at 5:02 despite fairly breezy conditions. The 65 degree temps really felt nice as we've spent the last few days in an icebox in Seattle. Finshed up with a nice cooldown along the beach.

13 wonderful miles in SoCal this morning in Santa Monica. I opted for the quiet city streets rather than than the boardwalk. It's hilarious to see other runners bundles up on hats and coats and complaining about how cold 50 degrees is.

Only time for 11.5 miles after dropping my daughter off at school this morning. I'm hosting a 5k fun run in Snoqualmie on Saturday so my time is all tied up in that right now. Beautiful morning albeit quite cold.

Back in Seattle and it's warmed up a bit. I moved my workout from Saturday to today to ensure I got a solid workout in prior to the race I am organizing tomorrow. The workout was a bit of a different one than I am used to. My coach had me put in 9 miles of easy running (6:40-6:45 pace) before jumping into a 2x2M workout. The prescribed time was 10:15 for each with a 1/2 mile float in between. It was pretty breezy and warm ahead of an unfortunately cold and rainy weather system coming tomorrow. But I'm certianly used to a little wind. The first rep was in 10:13 and the second was in 10:12. Didn't have to strain too much and finished the workout without feeling wiped out.

An exhausting 12 miles today. I got exactly 75 minutes of sleep overnight. Today I hosted the 1st annual St. Patty's Day Run in Snoqualmie and so I was up very late and up very early this morning preparing for that. Not sure exactly how I managed even 12 miles, especially in the cold, driving rain.
