afternoon - 15 Grass/2xHarts/King's Row. Started off with nearly 9 out on the grass barefoot. A perfect afternoon. Then did the warm and cool with the team and got home and pushed Elin out around the neighborhood. Didn't feel great, but much better than last night. Didn't run this morning because my stomach hurt so bad. I wonder if it might have been food poisoning since it hit like a beast and just wretched my stomach. Was still able to get okay mileage for the day and hopefully a few extra miles the next couple of days will get me where I want without stressing the body too much. Got a good set of weights in also. (Barefoot '13 10)(Rocket 558.5)

AM - 13 Parkway/PVHS.  Had a pretty sore throat throughout the night, so maybe it is a bit more than food poisoning.  Dang it.  On the run I felt a little extra tired and dazed.  Ran a little bit more to try and catch up a mile or two.  But I had better be smart if I am coming down with something.  (Connect 433.75)

afternoon - 11.5 Mustang Pass/Dino Tracks.  Good easy trail run with the team.  Then extended through the desert over to Dino Tracks and hit that trail too.  (NB110 314.5)

AM - 10.25 Clyde's.  Bill, Logan and I for a nice morning jaunt.  Just talked about the politics of weightrooms - good to know that they are the same everywhere!  Feeling a touch better.  (F50 408.5)

afternoon - 13 Foremaster/Dirt Mile LT. Did the 6 mile Foremaster run with a short intro AT tempo. I ran a 12 minuter with Mike at 5:36 pace. Then I skipped out of practice quick (sorry for not waiting for everyone - that isn't very coachy of me) to get home and finish my workout which was a 4 mile LT Tempo on the Dirt Mile. Was pretty pleased with the progress of the workout; hit 5:23, :25, :22, :25 (last week averaged 5:18 on a set of 5 with 3 min rec - today, continuous tempo). I am working hard at over coming my fear of pushing too hard... Each time I am getting mentally and physically stronger. 2 mile cool, one with the dog. (Rocket 571.5)

AM - 11 Highland/Mall.  Warm out this morning.  Didn't need hat or gloves.  Too bad the weather says that the teens are coming back next week - aghhh.  Out toward Coral Canyon and toward Highland Park and then the Mall run.  Kind of like yesterday afternoon - that 10 minutes of stoppage time while I drive to work (or home) after waking up Ry kind of throws the body.  It isn't sure why I run and stop and then start again so shortly later.  (Kinvara3 236)

afternoon - 9 DogPound. Sneaked a couple miles in on the track waiting for practice to start. Then we ran DogPound and some striders, had another good set of weights, and came home and out the door with the dog for two more very cold and blustery sleet soaking miles.

AM - 12 Fields.  Getting chilly again.  Dang frozen hands.  Other than that it was a nice easy run and I got it done even though it took a pretty early morning.  (Kinvara 775.9)

afternoon - 7 Grass/Harts. Had to work to get the miles in tis afternoon. With the team doing a workout and having to get out of there quick, I sneaked onto the grass for 4 before practice. (Barefoot '13 15)(Zero 147.45)

AM - 17.25 Vernon Tonaquint Loop. We've ran this a few times now, so I named it something. Just Logan and I braving the cold this morning. Good conversation and a nice easy run to finish the week. Added a little so Logan could hit his weekly mileage. Ran in a new pair of Rocket Eikidens (same pair I already have - bought two a couple years ago since I got them for like $20 each or something). Breaking them in for the half next week. (Rocket 2 17.25)

Pretty good week after starting out sick and having that kind of follow me around the whole time.

Goals for next week: Race fast! Is that succinct enough?
