I think my tolerance for discomfort is increasing. The last time I did this workout, I really struggled, but this time I was able to shut off the quit thoughts and grind through it.
this is the one thing i've really lost over the past year plus. with no consistent workouts or actual races in 2020, my mental edge for getting through really tough segments has dulled a lot. i'm working on this more by either doing a hill or track workouts and setting reasonable goals for myself to build back up, but i've definitely noticed when things get hard i'm much more content to ease off instead of push through. i'm trying to change that now.

I am still trying to translate this consistently to my outdoor efforts. :)

I am giving it another couple of days so nothing to report. However, the Hoka One One Carbon-X's arrived, and... I tried them on... and I'm not sure I want to send them back! They feel very different from the Saucony Endorphin Pro's, with a much more aggressive 'rock' to them and a more solid feel, both of which suit me fine. But the question is whether I really need both... I'll think about it over the weekend.

Of course you need both. Don’t be daft, man! ;)

Spinning it up today, plus strength and yoga.

60 minutes on the trainer (with 40 minutes of zone 3 with six randomly placed short out-of-saddle efforts).

5 miles this morning with stroller and daughter.

Was supposed to be an easy run to watch my friend finish up his marathon time trial (he ended up with a 2:56 PR) before taking daughter to tap class.

Realized when we got to the designated finish that I had forgotten her tap shoes so easy run became a 2.5 mile tempo back home and then straight to tap. We made it with a few minutes to spare and I think I managed a little less than a mile at my friends’ average pace.

Did 23 miles today. New saddle was good but some adjustment once I got home. Also raised the seat height a tad. Sadly, forgot to put some butt butter on and paid for it.

About 8.8 miles last night on foot.

Was raining a bit before my run and was forecasted to possibly rain through my run, so decided to keep it close to home and went to the local track. 0.94 miles to the track, 0.97 miles for my first step on my Garmin training plan (2 minutes warm up, 5 minutes run, and 2 minutes cool down). Was thinking about doing step 2 also (7 miles, with a 5 minute warm up and cool down), but wasn't planning on staying out that long, so just ran 6.15 miles (average pace of 8.03/mile), and 0.81 miles towards home, but small stop at the local grocery for some lemon for Branzino for dinner. Wasn't too thrilled about my first track experience in years. It was right after the rain, so pretty much just me and 5 other people the whole time I was there. It was too monotonous for me, maybe if there were more people it would have been more interesting.

Went riding today. Did a local ride called Women who Built NY. 9.8 miles to the meeting point and another 10.8 during the ride with the group at a very casual pace. End point was close to home, so another mile home.

10.5 miles on a local trail this morning at 8:10/mile. That gives me 63.7 miles for the week. 2 weeks in a row above 60 miles now.

I was expecting temps in the upper 20s or lower 30s but it was about 40° when I started and warmed a bit during the run. Today is a lot nicer outside that the forecast was predicting.That said, we may get one final burst of winter here as there are some parts of southern Michigan that might get a few inches of snow Tuesday night.
