Week ending October 11, 2009

10/5 - 10 miles, with 5 miles AM @ 8:00 pace, 5 miles PM @ 8:00 pace (kind of tired plus something in my right foot is starting to hurt a little bit)

10/6 - 11 miles, w/ 4 x 2 miles at tempo pace w/ 400 jog recovery: 10:55 (5:28, 5:27), 2:10 recovery, 10:53 (5:27, 5:26), 2:11 recovery, 10:52 (5:26, 5:26), 2:17 recovery, 10:48 (5:27, 5:21). Solid workout, especially mentally. These solo track tempo sessions are tough on the brain as well as the body. Total tempo work of 8 miles in 43:28 (5:26 average pace). - sore foot

10/7 - 7 miles @ 7:50 pace - sore foot

10/8 - 7 miles @ 7:30 pace - sore foot, taped it up a little, wrapping the bottom

10/9 - 7 miles @ 7:40 pace? (no watch) - foot still a bit sore, taped it up a bit

10/10 - 10 miles, UNH Homecoming 5K, 15:58, 3rd place. 1st mile too fast...4:42, died pretty hard. 4+ warm up alone and 3+ cool down with Nate Huppe.

10/11 - 18.5 miles @ 7:15 pace, with about 10-12 miles closer to 7:30, and 5-6 closer to 6:30.

70+ miles for the week. Not bad considering early in the week I thought I was going to get sidelined by some PF. It is still a little annoying, but right now I'm thinking I can train as usual and maybe just ice/stretch it a bit. Higher, easy mileage planned for next week.

Thanks, I'll take it!

I filled a coke bottle with water and froze it to make an ice roller. Works pretty good.

You and I learned the same thing at Boston, fast starts bring a fast death. Rip a few 6:00's and ease into it this weekend!
