Week of May 9th-15th

Monday: 0mi

Tuesday: 14mi / 1:40 in Grafton Trails w/Ferenc, Boj, and the girls. Good run. We hit a couple of really steep climbs and we couldn't finish the route we set out to do. We got a little lost.

Wednesday: 10mi* / 64min track workout - 200,400,800,1200,1600,800,400 w/half time rest. (36,77,2:29,3:43,4:57,2:22,68) w/Andy(James there too). This was a great workout. The short rest made it sort of difficult but manageable. I needed a good one after missing two weeks of track workouts.

Thursday: 8mi / 53min in Pisgah w/Griffin. Felt a little tired. Weather was beautiful.

Friday: 3mi /25min in Friedsam w/track team + 8mi / 53min in Pisgah w/Griffin. I should have eaten a snack. I got pretty hungry out there. Took a swim in Fullam Pond.

Saturday: 9mi* / 59min. Westmoreland 4mi - 22:01(5:30) 1st. I am pleased with this race. I ran 21:54 in 2007 on this very hilly course. This year I was probably 20 seconds faster, but the new race director moved the start and finish back. I felt strong the whole way. It's safe to say the sinus infection is behind me and I'm running well again. Jen won her first race, which was very cool to see. Started to get a migraine but I fought it off.

Sunday: 18mi* / 2:01 Putney Rds. w/Fyffe. This was a nice long run. Fyffe still knows how to run! Legs a bit stiff today.

Total: 70mi - Great week. I need to lift more next week and run similar mileage.
