Am: 1mi with circuits at Fit Club with kids.
Pm: 6mi/48min on the trails of Saxton's River with Ferenc and the girls. Wow. This was a miserable run. My body was exhausted and those damn hills with the snow, ice, and mud were the worst thing for me. I needed either a day off or a flat easy run. I kind of ruined the run for Ferenc as I stopped to walk on hills and plodded the rest of the time. Lesson learned, don't run in Saxton's River if I need an easy day!
Am: 2mi/14min at Fit Club. Very easy run.
Pm: Had to ref 2 basketball games. Legs feel great after reffing.
9mi*/61min - track workout at Monadnock.
8 x 400m with 200rest
Result: (72, 71, 70, 69, 69, 70, 69, 64) - with Andy, Boj, and James
This was a No-Man's-Land workout. Too fast for I pace (I also would run longer than 400's for I paced stuff) , too slow with not enough rest for R pace. I got sucked into running a workout I didn't really want to do. It went well, but what system was I stressing? Oh well, I'll stick to Daniel's for now on. Nice warm weather.
0mi. Played some intense floor hockey at school today. I should have run, but I wasn't feeling motivated. Tomorrow lift and run.
8mi*/53min in Pisgah with Griffin + 3 x 8sec hill sprints. I felt great today. Days off work! I thought I was racing at Smith College this weekend so I only did 3 hill sprints instead of 6. Turns out the meet was last weekend! Oops! Well, at least I don't have to make the decision to do the meet or watch the Patriots play. Patriots it is!
7mi*/47min - Track workout at Monadnock w/Ferenc
200-200-400-300-200-200 @ F pace with plenty of jogging/walking recovery
Result: (30, 29, 58, 42, 29, 28)
It was fun to run fast! The workout went well. I wore my spikes which was a good idea due to the slick frozen track and the heavy snowfall that started coming down for the last few repeats. Legs are good and tired now.
17mi/2:05 in Pisgah with Ferenc, Lena and Ellie. Gorgeous day out there with the sun shining and 3 inches of fresh fluffy snow.
Total for the week:
This was an ok week. I got a good long run in, 2 speed workouts, and some hill sprints. I didn't lift at all or do yoga this week. I need to make sure I do those next week. I'm racing at USATF Master's New England's next Sunday.
