Workout Fail

3 mile warm with strides

Workout 20 minute breakdown tempo, 5 min jog; 15 minutes @ half marathon pace

Bailed 10 minutes into the first tempo. Legs felt heavy and tired. Mentally I gave in way to easy. But motivation for workouts is lacking; need to snap out of it. 

avg pace for run 7:05 min/miles

PM
Double on the Treadmill at work

Ice run with Jared and Riley. I welcome the snow since we need it. But I for sure won't miss it once it's gone. Lived in Utah my entire life and every year the snow just sucks. Looking forward to my St. George visits over the winter.

Easy tready run to test out the achilles. Felt alot better today and not as sore as it was Saturday morning. Hoping the extra day off helped the aggrivation. Been watching The Curse of Oak Island on the History Channel. Very, interesting show. Lots of cool history involved.
