AM - 3 Dogtown.  Forced myself to get up (not easy to do after 2 weeks of chill life) and got a nice 3 in.  Stepping out the door to my surprise I was greeted with another inch of snow!  I ran pretty hard (as I plan to continue doing on my morning runs) and the leg felt very solid.  Not a long run though, as I am trying to not get to frisky to soon on the leg.  (Free 379.45)

afternoon - 9.5 Green Springs.  Ran from school up GS (started with DI extension) and around the back side into Washington and back to school.  Ran pretty strong from the beginning and averaged 6:03.  Calve only really reacted at the very end with a little tightening, so I continue to try and work that out with stretching, rolling, heat, compression, yoga.  Finished with Molly's Mile.  (Boston 376.5)

AM - 5 AC.  Ran from home over to AC and to school.  I am going to try and do this a couple times a week to save a little gas and force me to get out of bed.  It was cold this morning.  Legs were pretty tired from yesterday, so I just easied it along.  (Landreth blue 512.4)

afternoon - 9.75 Foremaster/Home.  Good to be back running with the team today; even on an especially easy paced day.  Then ran home and Molly's Mile.  Calve(s) - both actually - a little tight, so I continue to work on them.  Felt very spent today.  Probably after effects of Monday's hard run, but I was really tired.  (Triumph silver 446.8)

AM - 3 PVHS.  Took it a little shorter today so as to not get too many miles in today.  Felt a little better than yesterday, but of course what can you really tell from a short 3 miler.  (Landreth black 977.6)

afternoon - 12.5 Fire station desert.  Great run out in the muddy and sandy desert with a few of the boys.  Calves felt great.  Finished with 8xbarefoot striders and Molly's Mile.  (Stratus grey 657.35)(Barefoot '11 1)

evening - 10.5 Club.  Took a little tour of the flood damage - it was amazing to see the trails just gone, 2-3 feet of sand dumped, the riverbed totally cleaned out, and the river running in totally different places than where it had been - crazy stuff.  Had a decent little clip throughout.  Added a little more and then Molly's Mile.  Calve improving a lot.  (Stratus black 755.7)

afternoon - 10.5 Middleton/2450.  Ran Middleton with the boys then 2450.  Had planned on getting something a little quicker in - maybe some intervals or a solid tempo session - but the legs were very flat, so I just ran.  A couple miles with the dog at the end.  (Kinvara 240)

morning - 15.5 St. George 1/2.  Took the VIP tour of the new 1/2 route, since the planned one is washed down to Lake Mead.  Felt pretty flat again.  As we moved into the 2nd loop, we slowly made our way from just above Tinman to a pretty good clip (5:35), but I just felt very strained and working hard the whole time - I'm just not in that great of shape.  Finished off with a little cool and Molly's Mile.  Calve tightened up just a little bit right at the very end.  6:42 ave.  (Ohana racers 468.25)

Okay week.  Pretty tired throughout the week after that decent run Monday.  Leg improved a lot and seems to be working its way out of the woods.

Goals for next week:  would like to see a little weight come off - after the marathon, I always gain about 8'ish pounds that seem not to come back off until the summer comes around.  Get the legs a little fresher.
