Week ending June 20, 2010

6/14 - 75 minutes? No watch, pretty comfortable pace (11 miles)

6/15 - 65 minutes (10 miles)

6/16 - workout (3 miles warm up with a few strides, then 5 x 800, 200 w/ 200m recovery after the 800 and 400m recovery after each set. 2:22 (58), 32.8 (1:58), 2:24 (61), 32.8 (2:05), 2:22 (61), 32.8 (2:07), 2:22 (63), 34.1 (2:07), 2:18 (61), 31.9, then 2+ miles cool down. Nice workout. Felt good to push the last couple of reps. I'm regaining some mental and emotional strength after last week's ordeal. Some guys can just run hard but I'm finding that I have to be mentally and emotionally ready to put in the work. Funny thing is...I don't believe in that kind of crap. (10 miles)

6/17 - 38 minutes AM (5 miles), 40 minutes PM (6 miles)

6/18 - 71 minutes (11 miles)

6/19 - 53 minutes (8 miles)

6/20 - Margarita's Father's Day 5K (4 miles warm up, race in 16:07 (1st), 4 miles cool down) (11 miles)

Summary: 72 miles for the week. Not many miles, but the lack of sleep is catching up to me and I'm feeling pretty tired and sluggish most of the time.

Nice race today on the "mostly flat" course...There must have been a typo and was supposed to read mostly flat minus 2 miles

Don't worry, as you know, that exhausted feeling will be gone in a week or two. Nice workout and nice race this week. You and Goup represented CMS well. Hope you enjoyed Father's Day.
