morning - 14 Sullivan. Ran the dogs for a bit and dropped of Molly and finished up to four miles with Twix. Then over to Hell's Hole to do a tempo. Started up at the top of Hell's Hole so I could get 6 miles in - so the splits are in different places than last week. I did pretty poor today - just didn't really have anything in me, but I did do all 6 miles. Next week will be better. Miles went 5:53, 5:53, 6:14, 6:15 (the hill was split between these two miles, but still just off as shown by all the times), then 5:54, 5:55. At least it was a very pretty morning. (Peg 62.5)

Followed that up with some ultimate. The PVXC All-Stars dominated the tourney (sponsored by the track team) and won the title! Not really because of me though. And once again we raised a bunch of cash for the Mr. PVHS fundraiser. These kids are pretty cool around here.

Another building week. Did okay with stuff.

Goals for next week: keep chipping away at this thing.

AM - 7 Twix/Sunrise. Slept in a few today, which was nice. Have been wearing the Pegs a lot this week trying to help achilles. Hurts a bunch. Rainy today. (Peg 48.5)

afternoon - 8 Root Beer Mile/Prospector. On the down side, my Root Beer Mile was horrid. I was the absolute last person out of the gate. The leaders were finishing their first lap when I finally got my first one down. I don't know what the deal was, but I just got a gas bubble totally stuck in my gut and could drink or burp or anything. From there on out I did pretty well, but still struggled in to a 12:50. Last year I was over 3 minute quicker. On the up side, the XC team raised around $1000 to help a sick little fellow in our area - PVXC4ever! Then we went over to Prospector and ran the trails in the mud. Beside my achilles just being heinous and the huge sugar headache I had, the run was awesome. Love the desert in the rain!

AM - 5.75 Twix.  Wore the Pegs again.  I know it isn't best for the shoe, but it is the highest heel I have and my right achilles has been giving me some pain for awhile.  Yesterday I bumped it and about cried.  (Peg 41.5)

afternoon - 7.5 Old Man Hills. Ran over to the hill and ran 4x800 with the distance boys. I'm. Pretty far off where I've been on these, but the a few of the guys (and a bunch of the girls) aren't. this isn't the first - or last - time I'll say this... Watch out XC world; PV girls are going to Beast and Feast for years to come! (Oregon 862.25)

AM - 8.5 Twix/Sunrise.  Just going to call the neighborhood loop I run with the dog Twix now to save me the extra time of a few more letters.  Did that run and then over to practice for the usual.  (Kinvara Green 282.25)

afternoon - 7 DI/track.  Took awhile to figure out why I was tight and sore this morning - it was the BeastAndFeast yesterday; super tough set.  Ran the tempo with the girls after helping a few of the groups get their paces on.  Team isn't minding the tempos on the track too much as they are seeing the benefits of keeping track of time and pacing more effeciently.  A little lifting after and 15 minutes of eliptical.  (Peg 35.75)

AM - 5.75 Twix.  Around a bit with the dog.  (Connect 804.25)

afternoon - 6 Sprint Hills/loops.  Went and did a hill workout with the sprinters.  Don't get many miles on these days as sprinters spend more of their time standing around and recovering than running.  Not really my bag.  (Kinvara silver 497.5)

AM - 8.5 Neighborhood/Sunrise. With the dog out and about for a bit. Then to practice for the morning run. (Kinvara silver 491.5)

afternoon - 10.5 DI/track. Warmed up and did 6x1600. Did the first three with Nick at 5:22, :20, :15. Then he was out so I joined the next group of boys and we brought it in at 5:22. Then Josie needed someone to help her out since she was a little late and we did 6:25 and 6:20. All with 3 minute recovery and then a little cool down with the boys. Actually lifted a little bit after which felt pretty good. The workout was good and I felt pretty good through the four faster 1600's. Then the ones with Jos actually made a pretty good recovery. (Mana 691)
