Monday - 15mi/1:39 on Putney Rds with Fyffe, Ferenc and Najem. Legs a wee sore and fatigued but it was a good run. Went for a couple nice walks. The stars were amazing at night and Mars, Jupiter and Venus all looked huge.
Tuesday - 8mi/57min on Grafton trails with Ferenc, Boj and the girls. Nice easy run. Beautiful day. It got me excited about running more trails. Lifted weights.
Wednesday - am: 6mi/38min in Pisgah with Griffin and (Jen). Nice warm weather. Griffin and I had fun hanging out at the vistas waiting for Jen. (R) piriformis sore.
pm: 10mi*/68min. Track workout. 2mi(10:20) 800rest + 1000(3:00) + 2 x 800(2:25,2:25) 400rest. I'm pretty satisfied with this workout. I did the 2mi with Fyffe and Ferenc. (Brad, Boj and James there too)
Thursday - 8mi/55min in Pisgah with Ferenc and the girls and Jimmy. My body is tired today. Lifted weights. Saw grackles and red winged blackbirds today. A real sign of spring.
Friday - 10mi/65min on the Putney Rds with Fyffe and Ferenc. Bitter damp weather. Ran in a deep heavy mist. My hands were cold at the end. Played some guitars after. Man, we rock!! Too funny.
Saturday - 0mi. A nice lazy day. Getting pumped for DH Jones.
Sunday - 15mi*/1:30 - DH Jones 10mi - 54:10(5:25) 18th. This was a pretty good race. I went out a hair too fast to try and get on the back of the lead pack, to get out of the wind. I started to hurt as we climbed in mile 3 and 4. I recovered and rolled with a pack of BAA guys and Kevin Tilton for a few miles. At around 7.5miles our pack really split up and I ran the rest of the way with a GBTC runner that I didn't recognize. The final hill was very tough into the wind. Judson Cake passed with me about a half mile to go. I held off the GBTC runner to take 18th in 54:10. This was 1 second slower than 2010.
Here are my miles: (5:15, 4:58, 5:45, 5:47, 5:26, 5:21, 5:06, 16:28 - missed 8 and 9 markers)
Total: 72miles - Decent week. I realize I did lose fitness from getting sick and the lack of training after. I need to ramp up and get prepared for New Bedford.
