meant to add the weight earlier and forgot.  very surprised that i am in this range.  given how the body feels and the amount of junk over the snow days, i would have said 160 or so. very happy with this

treadmill .5 incline
15 min wu w/ 2 x 30 sec pickups
2 x .5 mile interval at z4 w/ 3 min recovery

this is a lesson in why the workouts are planned a day apart.  i did today's workout first, then started on yesterday's run.  that did not go as planned.  left legs seized up during the pickups.  walked some.  then got the 2 half mile intervals but walked the recovery.  started the first one mile interval and that lasted about a quarter mile.  legs are trashed.  good hard workout.  it will be interesting to see how they work in the morning
