Arizona Canal Bike Home-12 miles (53 minutes)
AM-Arizona Canal-7 miles (57 minutes) + 5 minutes barefoot
up-tempo run on the canal this morning under a full moon. Only used the
headlamp a few times. Went in the same direction where I encountered
last week. Even tossed a rock under the overpass before going under.
This was one of those runs where you feel like something is behind you
the whole time. Not cool.

PM-Dreadmill Hill Workout-5 miles (48 minutes)
to the lack of convenient hills near our apartment I decided to succumb
to the convenience of the "dread" mill at our apartment complex. Due to
my lack of hill training recently this workout was going to be a
struggle. And it was. Warmed with one mile jog, then alternated 2 mins @
12% incline, then 2 mins recovery jog...or something like that. This
revealed that I severely need to work on my hill running because this
workout was a struggle.

-AZ Canal-5.2 miles (37 mins)
went out for one of my fastest runs in quite some time immediately
following my bike ride home. Was interesting how easy it felt to run
this quick right after a pretty quick bike ride as well.
PM-Arizona Canal Bike Home-12 miles (50 mins)
day of work!! Being as this was my last day of work, it will likely be
my last bike-commute, of the 12 mile variety anyway!
AZ Canal-10 miles (90 minutes)

Bike Total: 61 miles
Total Time: 4:10 hours
Was a low mileage week running-wise. I cut back intentionally
because up until Saturday afternoon, there was still a possibility I was
going to be running a marathon Sunday morning. Obviously that plan
didn't play out. Still a solid week between cycling and running. This
next week will also be a lower week because I just registered for the Coldwater Rumble 31k
to be held on the Estrella Mountains this upcoming week. I'm excited to
finally race again, just wish they didn't come with such a price tag.
In other-than-running news. I resigned my job on Friday, January
13th in efforts to complete my graduate degree (finally!). Tomorrow
morning I begin student-teaching at a local high school. Pray that I am
not eaten alive by high schoolers! I'm sure this next week will be
interesting and my next post should follow suit! Until then,
Jog on Mates!
