Monday: 7mi / 47min in Pisgah w/Jimmy and Griffin. Nice cold winter day.
Tuesday: 10mi / 66min in Pisgah w/Fyffe, Ferenc, and the Girls. Great run. It's always fun running with the guys and hanging out after. Life is good.
Wednesday: 9mi* / 60mi - Track Workout - 2-2-8-8-4-4-4-4 -w/half rest. Result:(34, 33, 2:18, 2:16, 68, 67, 66, 67) This was a great workout for me and a big confidence booster. Last week I didn't feel warmed up enough for my workout and suffered in the mile. This week I did the 200's first and then hit the 800's. I was originally planning for 2:22-2:24.for the 8's. I was surprised to see how easy and relaxed I felt. It was fun having everyone doing the same workout for once, that rarely happens. Feeling great!
Thursday: 3mi / 19min on roads at night w/Griffin
Friday: 8mi / 58min in Pisgah w/Fyffe, Ferenc, Boj, and the Girls
Saturday: 10mi* / 66min URI Alumni Track Meet 3ooom -8:56 1st. 1500m -4:19 5th. Good race in the 3k. I've never run a 3k before, so it's a p.r. I took the lead after the mile. They weren't yelling out splits and I wasn't wearing a watch, so I was clueless to how fast I was running. One URI kid went with me(Mike). He surged hard w/300m to go. He got a gap of about 3 seconds. I thought that was it. At the bell lap I ran hard and caught him on the final turn and put 3 seconds on him for the win. It felt great to win my first race in Mackal Field House. I only had about 25 minutes to get ready for the 1500 and my legs were cooked. Time to switch into workout mode. This was gonna hurt. I had no fight at all and let the top 3 guys go at the gun.(They were fresh) The winner ran 4:05. I was not thrilled but not upset with my 4:19. It was a fun meet, but it was a little disappointing that I was the only alumnus running from my college years. After the meet, Jen and I went and watched her niece perform in a play. It was a great day.
15. 29.90/8:55.80-3000m-nice kick!
Sunday: 8mi / Untimed - Ran in Pisgah w/Jen, Griffin, and Jimmy. Wet rainy day, trail and dirt roads were pretty icy in spots. Legs a little tired.
Total: 55mi - Good week. Nice workout and race. I needed a long run and to lift. Next week I'm gonna lift, race at BU (probably the mile and 800), and do a long run.
