AM - 8 Pine Lake.  Ran the big hill today.  Did okay, but not where I was a when we were up here a few years ago.  (Ravenna 268.5)

Camp was great.  Kids did a gerat job, weather held pretty solid, and thing went very well.

morning - 8 Pine Lake.  Ran out to the overlook.  Such a pretty place.  Felt pretty decent on the run.  (Ravenna 260 - miles will be a little skewed here, because I am entering this week in from the end to the first)

0 - Just the regular Saturday off to rest the achilles.  I've wondered in the last few weeks where it has hurt so bad if I should move the day off to a weekday so that I don't have such a long weekend off.  But I don't know.  Heel actually felt quite a bit better by the end of this week - probably because of eliminating the doubles.  I'll just keep on keeping on.

AM - 12 DM/PV.  Walked for a little with Twix and then ran 3 loops up on the Dirt Mile with her.  Beautiful sunrises with the smoke in the air.  Then to practice at school.  (Tough thing about practicing at school means that school is starting... but it is also something I like: the structure, the anticipation, the new challenges).  For practice we did Pace Work (Temp, Thresh, CV sections) around a warm and cool.  Got to run with almost every group of kids today.  More and more kids keep telling me they will be gone for the Relays - maybe we'll have a team there.  (Peg Black33 605)

AM - 8.75 Twix/Trail to Nowhere.  Walked and ran with Twix.  Although the left achilles does act up a little, it is the right that is the major problem and today it was sending out some pain.  So that hampered the pace a bit.  Ran around the Pine View area for practice with a good chill group.  (Peg Oly 535.25)

AM - 9 DM/GS.  Walk and run a bit with Twix on the Dirt Mile.  For practice we went up into Green Springs.  Made the full loop up around the top.  Got back and did a very necessary yoga session.  (Peg Purple 238.75)

AM - 9.5 Twix/Track. Well life has started again. Got a little in with Twix and then ran a bit at practice as the team did their workout. Got to run some with most every group. A little bit of abs.  Achilles is feeling swell after the weekend. (Peg green 366)

AM - long walk with Twix.  Followed up by weights and ab stuff.  Leg felt great on yesterday's run, but by the end of the day was feeling shredded again.

afternoon - 4.5 DogTown.  35min run into Washington.  It was a hot one.  I haven't been running much in the afternoon (so I could avoid doubles) and I felt it today.  But, survived.  (Ravenna 300.75)

AM - 7.25 Twix/AC.  Twix and I had a pretty decent run.  Walked a little to warm up the leg and then was able to run with manageable pain in the achilles.  Team run out past Arctic Circle as usual on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Good session of abs after.  (Adios 512.25)

afternoon - 3.75 PVMS.  Shorter run with the girls.  Haven't doubled in awhile, so hopefully I'll be able to walk tomorrow.  Update on the weather... it is still hot.  (Peg black33 608.75)

AM - long walk with Twix.  Followed that up with yoga and abs.

afternoon - 5.75 Kick It. Felt okay I guess. Guys are running pretty well right now and are coming together nicely. Still some big work to be done, though. (peg purple 244.5)

AM - 10.75 Twix/Old Mans. Little walk worth Twix and then a few miles. Had a Saturday practice with some of the team with Old Man Hill Circuits. I didn’t do much of the hills just running around coaching. Achilles is pretty painful today - usually have been taking Saturdays off, so today was a little more on it; plus, even though my mileage is pretty low, I even did a double this week.

AM - 13.75 Twix/Turkey Farm. Short walk with Twix and a short run. Then up Turkey Farm for 90 with some tempo sessions. The uphill wore me out and also stressed out my achilles. Did pretty good until the last 15 mins when I was officially spent. Abs. (Peg green 379.75)

AM - Longer walk with Twix.  Weights (some, because I can't do much leg stuff since it puts too much strain on my achilles) and abs.

afternoon - 6.25 River Trail.  Ran with the girls today.  Trying to work on keeping the pack together.  (Peg Black33 615)

AM - Usually this is a run morning for Twix and I, but a big storm rolled in last night and never left.  So nothing with her.  Then at practice, we had to run inside, so I just walked for 30mins.  I'll see about running this afternoon a bit as the team does the workout.  Wore some new Brooks Levitate that got shipped to my house for some reason - I think I know why, but I'm not sure... whatever, Hooray for free shoes!  Abs after.

afternoon - 8 PV.  Warmed and cooled with the team and ran around a bit as they did their workout jumping into different groups and helping them out a bit.  (Levitate 8)

AM - 6.5 Twix/AC.  Felt okay (which is not a normal foot's okay, but still...).  Twix and I ran a bit and then practice.  Ended up with some yoga.  Gotta love it.  (Ravenna 287.25)

AM 12.75 - Twix/Pioneer.  Short walk and run with the dog to loosen up the achilles.  Out along Pioneer Parkway for practice with some pickups invovled.  Felt decent.  Still pretty worn out by the end and really can't hang on to the top guys much if they pick up the pace.  Abs.  (Peg Purple 267.25)

AM - long walk with Twix.  Weights and abs.  Got a new pair of Peg 34s (these ones weren't from the Shoe Fairy unfortunately) which means I need to kick out my two oldest shoes from the rotation.  Hopefully this can help bring some improvement to the achilles.

afternoon - 6 Foremaster.  Even though it isn't 110, it is still pretty warm.  This is a tough time of year around here.  With school and XC in full swing and not being super hot, my brain thinks it should be fall... 100 degrees is not fall.  (Peg NOP 6)

AM - 8 Twix/Old Man.  Short walk with Twix and then just over 3 miles with her.  The short walk seems to make the pain in the achilles so much more bareable.  Early practice with a hill circuit session.  No hills for me, but had to do too much demonstrating of bounding.  It will probably give out a little pain this afternoon.  Yoga.  (Levitate 31)
