Week ending February 20, 2011

2/14 - 5 miles AM (40 minutes), 10 miles PM (66 minutes)

2/15 - 8 miles AM (57 minutes)

2/16 - off (I wrenched the crap out of my back loading some wood flooring into the truck and couldn't move all day. Had to get help putting my socks on for work. Thought about going to the ER but decided to see if it loosens up at all today. Kind of scary. Getting old sucks.)

2/17 - 7 miles (49 minutes) Back is still pretty stiff in the lower left side, but being straight up when running isn't bad as long as I keep a very quiet upper body. Should be back to normal tomorrow.

2/18 - 5 miles AM (40 minutes), 10 miles PM (64 minutes)

2/19 - 10 miles (71 minutes)

2/20 - 15 miles (~1:50, no watch)

Week ending February 13, 2011

2/7 - 8 miles AM (56 minutes)

2/8 - 5 miles AM (35 minutes), 5 miles PM (40 minutes)

2/9 - 10 miles (67 minutes)

2/10 - 5 miles AM (38 minutes), 7 miles PM (50 minutes)

2/11 - 4 miles AM (30 minutes), 6 miles PM (36 minutes) I was hoping to try a 4 mile hard run @ about 5:15 pace so I did an easy mile and then got through 2 miles before I had to bail. Not the muscles, just out of shape. Did 800m @ 6:40 pace, getting pissed the whole time. Threw in a mile @ 6:00, then was planning to coast in another 1.5 miles @ 6:40 pace. Got through another 800m and Eye of the Tiger came on so I had to max out the treadmill @ 12 mph and let it rip. I'm glad I did. It basically turned into a weird little workout. I feel good though, so hopefully I'll just be tired tomorrow, not overly sore.

By the way, if you want to have a child on 11/11/11, you better get busy tonight.

2/12 - 8 miles (56 minutes)

2/13 - 8 miles (56 minutes)

Summary: 66 miles for the week. Geez, almost feels like I'm actually a runner again. About 2/3 of the runner I want to be.
