03/06/2014 AM Run

It's bitter cold out today, again.  F.  But, I just finished up a good hour long run in my gym.  I stepped up the pace today rather than simply running for comfort.  After an hour and about a million laps, I would say I ran between 6.75-7 miles during the hour.  My pace, averaged around 8:30-8:40/mile.  

It felt strong to step up my pace today.  The only real drawback is that in my gym, it feels like I am constantly turning at any quicker pace.  I do change directions every 15 minutes so that I change the stressor points on my joints.  It also helps break up the boredom.  

I have switched from music to podcasts at this point as well.  I have found multiple running podcasts on ITunes.  I currently am rotating between AthleteonFire and UltraRunningPodcasts.  After awhile, I totally tune the music out.  The podcasts are fresh.  However, I will not be listening to anything when I want to hit times or splits, etc.  It is too distracting for me.

On a side note, I obviously changed the look of the site.  I don't know if I really like it, but the other was to dark and dreary.  I want it to be a little more uplifting.  If you have an opinion, let me know.  If you want to and know how to design blogger templates from scratch, let me know.  I would love the help personalizing it.
