*20' warm up... came out to 2.3 miles
*2 x 1 mile, 2 x 800m on the track
paces according to my garmin (slower than the times that were called out on the track, so realize that the actual times i hit were not this fast): 5:48, 5:35, 2:53, 2:51
*20' cool down... came out to 2.1 miles
*general strength workout
comments- not a good day for me, physically. peed on myself 3 times during the workout (1st time for that), felt like i was running on sticks for legs and bricks for feet, and never did get warm at all. gloves and ear covers are going to be crucial for me this year. excuses and negative attitude aside, i have to remember that i at least got in 7 miles worth of running and 3 miles worth at race pace or better. may not have been what i expected or wanted, but it was at least something.

  1. 1. How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
    Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!
    What more can He say than to you He hath said—
    To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?
    2. “Fear not, I am with thee, oh, be not dismayed,
    For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
    I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
    Upheld by My gracious, omnipotent hand.
    3. “When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
    The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
    For I will be with thee thy trouble to bless,
    And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.
    4. “When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
    My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply;
    The flame shall not harm thee; I only design
    Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine.
    5. “The soul that on Jesus doth lean for repose,
    I will not, I will not, desert to his foes;
    That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
    I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.”
