AM - 6 Treadmill.  Hit the tready for a bit this morning.  It was one of those mornings that seemed to last forever and I wanted to be done.  Oh well, at least I got up and got a bit in to start the week off.  (Five Fingers 450.6)

afternoon - 9.75 Old Man Hills.  Ran over to hit some Old Mans with the team.  All the kids are looking pretty strong - especially my top 3 girls and top 6 boys.  We ran a 200, 400, and 800 (2 sets).  The 200's are just to work on speed, the 400's are solid, and the 800's are brutal.  A good workout.  Molly's Mile with Laney to finish off the day.  (Stratus grey 681.85)

AM - 5 Buena Vista.  Hey, that is two mornings in a row!  (Landreth black 987.6)

afternoon - 9.5 Fields.  Pretty cold day especially with the wind.  Easy out into the Fields and back to PVHS.  Added on Molly's Mile.  Weights today for the first time in quite awhile.  (Landreth blue 552.65)

afternoon - 8.75 Fire Station Desert.  Easy short day with the team.  I was starting to feel worn down again on Tuesday, so I decided to not run this morning and hopefully use the recovery to get things back in line.  Hopefully it worked.  Although I was sore from lifting for the first time in months, I felt I had more energy today.  8xbarefoot striders and Molly's Desert run.  (Barefoot '11 14)(Landreth orange 832.85)

AM - 5 Parkway.  Bitterly cold outside.  18 on the way to school.  But it felt great to run this morning.  (Triumph 694.75)

evening - 10.25 Club.  Nice run with the Club around the DC trails and Bloomington.  Pace was around Tinman for the last 5 or so, but it seemed like I was working a bit harder than I should have needed to.  Temps much nicer than the last few days.  (old Ohana -10.25)

afternoon - 12 track/Foremaster.  Went out to get a few miles on the grass before practice, but they were working on the sprinklers, so I had to confine myself to the track.  Then went out on the tempo run with the boys.  We all did a bit better this week - Tinman for the first two and then 5:30 for the next two.  Cooled down back up to school and then did weights (although the Friday weights are more like exercises.  I do, however, think that they will be beneficial.).  Finished up with Molly's Mile.  (Boston 417.25)

Boston Miles: 12.00

morning - 16.65 DC trails.  Hit a good workout this morning of 6x4 min.  I was a bit worried since I don't feel in shape to do anything, and Logan and Aaron looked ready to eat it up.  But Clyde and I played off each other and ended up hitting some good consistent sections.  We warmed up for about 5.5 and then got into the repeats.  Hit each one around 5:15 pace and covered between .75 and .77 miles each time (with a 2 minute recovery).  Then a long cool back to the cars.  Glad to hit the workout and run well and build some confidence.  (Kinvara 277.9)

Good week again.  No pain in hip - I think the 3 mornings with a couple off really help out (rest/recovery time and not as many miles); and a couple good workouts.

Goals for next week: Keep building on this same groove and keep it rolling.
