A new twist

Up at 5:45 today. I'm in Birmingham, AL and happy to be here despite the meat oriented atmosphere. In an attempt to stretch my running legs out, my coach suggested complementing my running training on the stairmaster. Today, I did just that. 30 minutes on the stairmaster followed by a 30 minute run.

I was definitely hitting my zones which is great for conditioning. The running could feel a lot better but it also was not quite as painful as Sunday. I'm definitely going to work the stairmaster in.

Tomorrow, after a late flight back this evening, a day of rest.
