Week ending June 27, 2010

6/21 - 59 minutes (9 miles)

6/22 - 40 minutes AM (5 miles), 65 minutes PM (10 miles)

6/23 - workout (3 miles warm up with a few strides then 2 x mile, 4 x 400. I was originally planning to do 2 x 800 in between the miles and the 400s, but after the second mile I was already dead so I modified it. The lack of sleep is catching up to me big time lately, plus I need to ease up on some of my easy days. 4:57.9 (2:05), 4:57.5 (2:16), 72.9 (66), 71.6 (66), 71.4 (68), 70.3, 3 miles cool down) During the workout I was thinking this was a bomb but looking at it on paper doesn't look too bad, aside from the rest between the 400s being about twice what they should be. (10 miles)

6/24 - 60 minutes (8 miles)

6/25 - 42 minutes (6 miles)

6/26 - Strawberry Festival 5 Miler (3 miles warm up, race in 26:23 (1st), 4 miles cool down including a stop for strawberry shortcake!) (12 miles)

6/27 - 100 minutes (13 miles nice and easy)

Summary: 73 miles for the week with a medium effort race. Legs feel better than when the week started. I think because I got a little bit of rest. No race this coming weekend so hopefully I can get in a workout geared towards Stowe and get to feeling decent again before the race.

I like that: "get a workout in geared toward Stowe." I hope we'll be at close to full strength for that one.

I'm thinking something like 2 x 3 miles at goal pace over a few hills with 5-6 minutes recovery. If we bring the full war chest I think we'll be tough to beat.
