AM - 6 Washington Loop.  A little hard to get up this morning, and another drizzly day.  But made it through - slight pain in right achilles.  Then ran the dog around the block.  (Cumulus blue 512.65)

afternoon - 9 River Run.  Went with the team and got the started on Sunrise hills and I continued around onto the River Run.  Got back and lifted weights then went out and did 8xbarefoot striders in the chilly weather.  (Landreth black 350.65)

afternoon - 14.6 Green Springs and Hospital in reverse.  Went with the team up to Green Springs as they did 6.  Then I continued it on to Hospital with 2 sets of 2 miles at Tinman pace with a mile between.  The first mile was very easy with the downhill (so time was well below Tinman), second was a good fair mile with another solid time (had to keep it chill and not go to crazy).  Then recovered(?) up over Foremaster and started the second set up the long hill past Target and the Outlets.  First one was right on 6:00; second slipped a little, but not for lack of effort.  I really worked hard on it, so I felt good.  Then cooled down and went over by Old Man Hills to find an 800 hill nearby for our workouts, and brought it back to school.  Got home and took the dog around the neighborhood; she was anxious since we didn't run this morning.  (Stratus black 164.95)

AM - 6 Washington Loop.  Still a little chilly out in the mornings.  Slept good, too good.  I didn't want to get up.  But did and had a nice little run.  Then took the dog around as usual.  (Landreth 593.10 - these shoes are holding up very well.  I would imagine they will become the first shoe that goes 601+ miles)

afternoon - 11 River Trail.  Went down the trail 5 and back and had a decent run.  My legs are a little sore and tired (mostly from adding the weights, but hopefully the strength in my hips and legs will be worth it).  Got back and lifted  and then did my 8xbarefooters.  (Cumulus white 487.50)

AM - 6 Washington Loop.  Good to get a little stretch out this morning.  Got home and took the dog around as usual.  (Stratus bee 455.45)

evening - 8.15 Club Run.  Went out on the Parkway with a pretty big group.  Legs still a little stiff, but improving.  (Landreth black 358.8)

AM - 6 Washington Loop.  Hit the standard again.  Almost everyday I think about going some other direction, but it is a little easier to just hit the same and it doesn't matter when it is dark anyway.  Then took the dot around.  (Landreth 599.10)

afternoon - 12 6x1000's.  Started off with 3.5 barefoot to get warmed as I waited for the team.  Then we did a DI warm up and got into the 1000's.  The goal pace for Corey and Austin was 3:21; mine was a few seconds quicker; with 200 jog recovery.  Hit them all decent, between 3:15 and 3:18.  The boys (and girls) hit their's solid as well.  Ended with DI loop cool down.  A solid workout.  (Landreth black 367.3

AM - 19.5 Quail Creek.  Had to get up at the early hour to get the run in before Ry's swim meet (she swam very well) making it very dark and lonesome out on the road.  I didn't wear a watch, but I felt pretty solid throughout and the ave. was probably a solid long run.  Took the lake loop backward, which makes for 2 hard climbs right near the end.  Got home and took the dog around to end it all.  (Cumulus gold 172.45)

Had another solid week.  Mileage is progressing very well.  Legs were a little flat throughout the week, but I attribute that to lifting more than anything else; nonetheless, I will keep doing it to strengthen up some of my weaknesses.

Goals for next week: Keep the mileage right in the same area (right around 100).  Enjoy the morning temps, because they won't be here for much longer (it will be the middle of summer before we know it).
