Week ending June 5, 2011

5/30 - off (built a sweet tree house with Camden)

5/31 - 6 miles AM (42 minutes), 10 miles PM (66 minutes)

6/1 - 5 miles AM (40 minutes), 7 miles PM (48 minutes)

6/2 - workout (2 mile tempo, 2 x 800, 2 x 400, all with 400m jog recovery - 10:28, 2:24, 2:24, 68, 66) (10 miles)

6/3 - 6 miles AM (48 minutes), 8 miles PM (58 minutes)

6/4 - 8 miles (56 minutes)

6/5 - Rhody 5K - (15:18 - 7th) 4 miles warm up with the team and then strides and a couple minutes tempo, course in reverse to cool down during the women's race.

Summary: 70 miles for the week. I'm sort of scheduling recovery weeks around grand prix events as a mini taper. Was hoping to be a little faster at Rhody but whatever. Went out conservatively for me (4:55) and was even the whole race, 9:50 at 2 miles I think. Went from about 35th place at a half mile to top 10 before the 2 mile mark. Good win for the team and a really solid CMS debut for Nick. Al ran really well too! We picked up the slack for missing a couple of guys who are usually in the mix for the team scoring.
