01/30/2014 AM Workout

My apologies for going AWOL for a bit.  I had my 40th birthday (awesome thanks to Maura, the kids, and in laws).  Also, I have and still am dealing with a major customer service problem with my cellular company.  I will not name names, but they suck to the tune of $1400 in unauthorized charges to my debit card.  Finally, I am a self pronounced cold weather wimp and the weather is.....freezing.

Anyway, enough excuses.  This mornings workout consisted of 125 laps around my gym, for a total time of 45:09.  As measured by a distance calculator used for field measurements, I went about 4.8 miles.  I did the first 3.44 miles progressively faster, ending with a slower 1.36ish.  It felt good to run again, although the tiny course with a million turns and a fair level of boredom were annoying.  I am still happy with it though.

My plan is to use the gym more if needed.  I really need to get this base training built.  Also, the weather is supposed to be in the low forties this weekend, maybe I can get outside.

On a side note, I received an email from an old friend, Brian Robertson the other day.  It was awesome to hear from him.  I have loosely tracked Brian's exploits over the years because I hold no career in higher regard than Brian's.  He is a member of the U.S. Air Force.  Helping to keep our country safe, Brian is career Air Force.  He is currently training for a half marathon in Madrid and I wish him the best.  I am proud to call him my fraternity brother and life long friend.

Good luck Brian and let me know if I can help!
