1600m x 3 @ HM pace, with 1 mile warm up and 800m jog between miles.
Didn't quite nail the splits: 7:41, 7:43, 7:58, which I think was in part due to the weather (wind & rain), early morning cobwebs, and recovering from previous evening's leg strength workout. However, it still felt quality.

6.03 miles/50 minutes/8:17 pace
Easy warm up, gradual increase to a brief 10k pace, cool down. Nearly busted my ass when I was running at a about a 7 minute pace and stepped onto a wooden bridge that had frozed overnight.

17 minutes of easy yoga on rest day.

Sun AM: Long Run
11:34 miles/1:45 min/9:15 pace
Easy pace in below freezing, smowy weather. Had on 2 pairs of gloves and still had trouble keeping my hands warm, but overall it was a fun and solid run.

Total Time Training: 06:15
Half marathon training is progressing positively. My weekly mileage is gradually increasing and my body seems to be responding well. 35 miles in a week might not seem like a lot, but it is the most I have run since taking a break to recover from the Columbus Marathon back in October and it includes quality training runs as well as strength training . Next weekend I have the Railrunner 10 miler on my schedule.
